I'm wondering if it is appropriate to ask my Dr. for pain medication. I'm seeing this new Dr. this week. My last Dr. didn't treat w/pain med's., but gave me Neurontin. Well, I've been taking Neurontin for 2 months now, and my pain has doubled. Not from the Neurontin, but I think it just has. So, I'm kind of desperate for pain relief. However, I'm uneasy asking for pain med's , because I don't him to think I'm just some kind of addict. Anyone been in this situation? I just don't think I should have to suffer another 2 months again.
