I am (yet again) teaching that point where my doctor will not prescribe the meds that I need. The eyes glaze over and they say they’ll give it “this time but not again”. How do you communicate with your GP? How do you make them understand that the pain you report is real, and given the opportunity you’d dearly love to not take anything, but you do, in fact,need it?
Do you have a pain management specialist? As they are the ones that should be prescribing the medication and then your GP will have to give you the medication you need. The pain management specialist should also provide other ways of trying to control or at least reduce your pain. I hope that helps
I have considered shaking them. I get better results when I go in looking like crap, no make up and hair in a bun or pony tail. Also have everything written down that seems to keep them in room longer and more focused on you
