Specialists tend to stick with what they know and are comfortable with.
I've found the older md's still hold on the what they learned and when. They stick with colleagues who are like minded.
I would see a pain specialist and explain that your GI doc is not handling your pain. Make a list of the meds that help you ( if you know) and bring you chart or records of you can. Try to find a practice who has younger physicians. Unless you know someone is open to using opioids when needed. There are still some physicians who believe opioids are only for terminal pain. They are just not willing to step out of the world they know and their personal beliefs can be strong.
Keep looking. Always take you test results. You have valid reasons to request pain relief. Also check the Internet for pain clinics in your area. It is not considered " unprofessional " for medical professionals to advertise.View Thread
