    months.

    I am going though the same thing here. But he did ask me if I would like to go to a pain manament Dr and I said yes. Maybe you can ask your dr if he would send you to one. It may help. I go Wen for my first Appt. I will let you know how it goes.
    So sorry I can be any better help

    to that. I went to my rheumy yesterday and made my hubby go with me this time. Last visit, he made me feel like a drug addict and said I was "taking way too much of the pain meds" It broke my heart so I had an appt with my PC following that visit and told him how I felt.

    When I got home and cried to my husband, he called our PC who called the rheumy who then called me to apologize. He had changed his attitude and told me he had just been concerned about the amt of tylanol in the darvocet and loratab. Yea, right!! Anyway, yesterday my husband talked to him about going for something stronger (even though the last visit the dr had said he would never prescribe anything stronger and was planning to cut down on what I could take) He said he would talk to my PC and they would figure out if they want to do something longer acting.

    Do you have a PC dr who is supportive? Im sooo sorry that we have to fight for the only thing that lets us exist each day. Maybe you could set up another appt in a few days and take someone with you as backup. I still dont know if it has helped me or not. We will see.

    Sorry I couldnt be more help.

    Nyrofan: I've had the same type of problem with a rheumy in Nashville which put me as close to a nervous breakdown as I've ever been.

    Suzette: Just saw you were from Nashville and had a similar experience with your rheumy. Was it Dr. "K" by any chance?

    Gentle Hugs!

    It's unfortunate that many doctors poorly understand pain management. This past year in California it was mandatory that physician take a pain management class prior to renewing their license.

    I personally would seek consultation with a pain specialist. They are much more knowledgeable than most doctors. My brother has ms and has a pain doctor who has been very helpful in his management.

    Yes:

    Great advice and I will discuss this with my PC.
    I never really thought about that.

    And thank you for being there when I needed it.
