SEE YOUR DOCTOR: Your medications indicate that you have very many complex medical conditions - hypertension, diabetes, probable rheumatoid arthritis, depression and severe coronary disease. Your pain needs to be evaluated by your physician in the context of all your other problems. I understand you want relief, but it is ultimately more important to find a cause and treat it directly, and not mask the symptoms.
