Go see another doc: If your doctor won't give you pain meds, consider transferring your care to another physician, especially someone who specializes in treating chronic pain. At the very least, see if you can get a referral to just such a specialist if you want to maintain your primary care w/your current physician. Good luck! ...Read more

Will my doctor refill my prescription for pain medication? Please help me docs!

Complicated.: Pain medications are a sensitive subject, unfortunately. They are regulated by the DEA and state licenses for controlled substances. Usually people in their 30s are flagged as possible drug seekers, or high risk for diversion/abuse in general.

Smoking cigarettes has been connected to having lower ability to handle pain. Consider quitting! ...Read more

Sleepin: Many different classes of medications help with sleep onset...Benzodiazepines, barbiturates, tricyclic antidepressants among others.

They take effect after taking them consistently, and it usually takes 4-6 weeks to notice robust effects from them. Using other techniques, like deep breathing, guided imagery, meditation, or physical exercise could be tried to help you with more immediate effects. ...Read more

Dr. John Chiu Dr. Chiu
4 doctors agreed:
