Re: pain

You definitely need a new doctor. If he says the DEA won't allow him to prescribe narcotic medication, either he has had a problem with them in the past, or is just afraid to prescribe. It makes me really angry when people like us with fibromyalgia, need pain meds to live a normal life, and drug abusers make it so hard to obtain what we DO need, because the doctors fear prescribing. I go to an internalist and a rheumatologist. I have meds for the everyday pain, and then when I am having a really bad flareup, I have something stronger. Keep on calling around to doctors, or call a pain management clinic. Good luck from Wisconsin!!!
