I am in serious pain lately, and I am also pregnant so it limits treatments. The only doctor I am allowed to see right now because of financial problems is my ob doc, he has said before that my pain and problems are out of his scope, but he is all I have, I can't continue to grin and bear the pain, I need him to hear me out on this, I really fear that all the pain and anxiety is affecting my baby, my bp has been elevated which I know after montioring it for months it's only high when I'm in pain, the only thing they ever want to treat is my high blood pressure, they don't want to listen to anything else, even taking the medicine for hbp it still gets high when I have a flare of pain, I unfortunately have not taken the bp medicine regurlaly at all during this pregnancy because the risks of birth defects are high with it and to be honest my primary doctor and myself believe it is pain related(which is very common) How can I word all of this to my doctor and have him listen and not shine me on, For the last 4 solid months I've gone on with little or no relief, I don't sleep, I've turned into a horrible wife and mother and friend for that matter I'm bitter as hell at the whole world, I'm not enjoying the pregnancy at all, I feel guilty for putting my baby through this and for bringing her into all this, I feel selfish. I can't see anyother doctors because I'm smack dab in the middle of filing bankruptcy,my claim is still open so no doc will see me unless I pay for 100% of my visit up front,please any advice will do

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
