Re: pain meds

Hi danni

Absolutely you should ask for medication for your pain. People who have illnesses that cause pain, should take medication for their pain.

Look at it this way...

If you have diabetes, you take insulin. If you have ulcers, or acid reflux, you take prevacid, or one of the other many digestive medicines..... etc...

Wise doctors understand this. I pray that you get relief from your pain, and all other symptoms.
