and not getting the pain relief i need, please tell me what you think. i, like alot of people here, have had a lot of bad treatment from doctors, and have not been getting the proper treatment that i need, and frankly i'm getting pretty ticked off by it. it is illegal to allow a person to be in pain. there are laws against not helping someone who needs it. my plan is to contact an attorney about it, explaining that i have a chronic pain condition, and that i am being refused any treatment (that works) to fix it, even after trying *everything* they have suggested. also explaining the degrading and awful treatment i have i gotten from some doctors, being treated like i am just a drug addict looking for drugs, and in turn having to suffer because of it. i'm then going to go to my doctor, again asking for help. if i am refused treatment again, i am going to kindly tell the doctor that i have contacted an attorney about my rights for pain control, and that i plan to take action if i am not given the treatment that i deserve. i am not going to be rude, and i will explain that i do not want it to come to that, but i can not continue to live like this, and don't deserve to either. i am hoping that the doctor will see i am very serious about this, and a) will want to help me or B) if not i will be taking a stand for all of us who suffer with chronic pain, and say I WILL NOT TAKE THE BAD TREATMENT ANYMORE! i believe any attorney will see this as a good case because it is illegal to not help a person who is suffering. what do you all think, do you think i would have a case? do you think the doctor will see i am serious and help me? i desperately need help, and just dont know what else to do.
