I wrote a post about you going to a new rheumy and the feldene, etc. on your other thread. I hope you don't mind me jumping in again. When it comes to doctors attitudes there is no excuse to treat you badly. Having an allergic reaction to a drug could have led to serious consequences.
I really do not understand this doctor. As Girl75 (Robin) pointed out Relafen is not the best drug for pain and has many side effects. There are many other meds you can take for pain that are not narcotic. IMO I fyou do need these, there are doctors that will.
Hummingbird, it is really important that you have a good relationship with your doctor since you will be dealing with them on an on going basis. I know it gets old trying new docs, I am to the point that I hate the smell of doctors offices, even if I am taking someone else. After 11 years you learn that it is just what you have to do and never settle for a doctor you are not comfortable with.
There is a Fibromyalgia Association that you could contact on the internet and perhaps find a doctor who is in your area. There are some that take an interest in Fibro and really know their stuff. To tell a patient that they will always be in pain is not the best bed side manner. A doctor should be telling you that they will do what ever they can to make you fell better. This doc sounds that they are either ignorant about fibro or just do not care enough to put energy into it.
Please, see if you can find a PM doc. They do not always give narcotics and they usually will have the latest information on dealing with chronic painful illnesses. The doctor I went to was for acupuncture, chiro, and also had no problem giving me meds for my pain. I told him that I had to get my life back, he understands since he deals with many people in the same boat. It took me a long itme to find him so there is hope for everyone. I called around and asked the doctors office if they treated many Fibro patients and if there were boundaries as to the type of medicine they prescribe.
Hopefully your next rhuemy will be the one. Don't give up and make sure they treat you without respect. You are not a guinea pig nor someone that they should give medication to and then send you away.
Good luck, I check your progress everyday. Something eventually will work out and all will be well. Just keep trying and be positive.
Keep us posted.
Peace and Love, Hangin
