How do I get my doctor to precribe me a good medication for chronic back and neck pain?
I have suffered with chronic back and neck pain for years. When I was 12 I was in a bad accident. It busted my tail bone and hurt my back. I remember that the doctor told my parents that I shouldn't have any problems with it until later in life, he gave me a back brace, and that was all of it. Well, now I'm 32 and its come back to haunt me in the worst way. Sometime I think that being dead would be better then having to deal with this constant pain every single day! Surgery is not an option right now because I am supporting myself and my son and I can't take the time off from work. How can I get my doctor to give me a good pain pill?! I have never asked for any before but it seems that doctors these days don't want to prescribe them. But I REALLY need them. I'm not a pill head. I'm in pain? What to I say to the doctor? Any suggestions?

I love my baby boy!
You aren't a pill head, yet you're asking for advice on how to get good pain meds? Ok... How about telling the doctor the truth. If you really need them, he/she will take care of you.

if you live in a state that allows it, get on medical marijuana. i have really bad back pain and spasms and my mom who is an R.N. and has studied herbology recommended that i get a medical marijuana card. the pain pills are very bad for your body and do other damage to your organs. there is a way to take the marijuana so that you don't have to smoke it as well. good luck!!!!

Say that you're in pain and ask for help.

Go to a different doctor.

Tell him what you said here. Suggest going to a pain clinic for evaluation and treatment.

complain complain complain...tell them that you've tried everything from heat to ice to streching and all the other none medicated ways to relieve back pain...I have a slipped disc...no one want s to help-they suggest therapy...that just causes me more pain, then i found a doc to give me TRAMADOL50mg...its not addicting like vicadin and Tylenol 3 but it really helps w/the pain!!! Good Luck!! You can even buy it over the internet!!

I'm kind of in the same boat here after a car vs pedestrian (me) accident. I was getting Narcotic pain killers at first. They helped but put me to sleep most of the time. So I kinda started not liking them. A Orthopedic doctor prescribed me Cyclobenzaprine, its non-narcotic, so less objection from a doctor to prescribe, and I find it does wonders for my pains. You should ask your Doc point blank "Do you think Cyclobenzaprine will work for me?" But if you want Narcotics there's always "Doctor Shopping."

You need to have you doctor send you to a pain management clinic. They would be able to prescribe you the right medication and take care of your pain.

The first thing you need to do is go see the doc to find out what exactly is causing your pain. Yes it may be from the old accident but then again it might be something new so you have to have a complete exam with x-rays to find out the cause of the back pain. You might be a candidate for an epidural or getting your facets injected or some other treatement. Once you get checked and out if you do find that pain meds is your best option you go see a PAIN MANAGEMENT DOCTOR. These are the doc that deal only with pain management.

This is becoming a pretty common problem. It seems to stem for several factors:

1)Some doctors are not very knowledgeable about pain medication and the myth that people frequently get addicted to pain medication. The reality is that very few people develop addiction.

2)There has been a federal crackdown on doctors prescribing controlled substances, and this has caused an over-reaction against prescribing pain medication.

There are doctors out there who will prescribe pain medication as needed. Try either a pain specialist, or possibly a teaching hospital affiliated with a medical school if there's one in your area. Ask around and see if you can get a recommendation. If you know any physical therapists, they would be familiar with how different doctors work.

In terms of how to approach your doctor, be honest and relaxed. Let them know the history of your injury and pain, including the different ways it is impacting your life. Take someone with you to help you remember your questions and keep track of what the doctor says.

I really believe in people getting the medication they need for pain. I also believe that you should go ahead and find out as much as you can about the status of your underlying condition. Supplement your pain medication with alternative treatment methods.

Good luck, and go see that doctor!

Barry Hughes, Ph.D.
