My Dr refuses to give me anything for my pain. I have kept a pain journal and have even given him a copy of it. My PCP will not give me anything for the pain either. I understand that she (PCP) cannot right script for many pain meds. But my rheumatologist should be able to give me something. He keeps shoving Lyrica at me left and right. And I cant take it because I swell so badly when on it and it doesnt help me with the pain. And the real kicker is that the Rheumy I am seeing is the only one in my clinic. There is literally no one else to go see. How do I get him to understand that I need something? I want a referral to the pain clinic here but he still hell bent on getting me to stick with the Lyrica, which he keeps telling me will help. I cant take the swelling!!! I keep telling him that but I still get it shoved in my face. HELP!
