I am at a point where I need prescription pain meds. I have tried everything OTC, in increasing dosages, and they 1) have stopped working and 2) make my stomach a hot mess. I have brought this up with two doctors and neither have taken me very seriously. I do not know how to ask for these things without feeling like a drug-seeker. Doctors all seem to care far more about theoretical addiction then about actual pain. Do people have suggestions on narcotic and non-narcotic prescription pain medications that have worked for them? And how do you ask for these medicines without being written off as a hypocondriac or an addict?
