Hello, I know what you're going through, I've lived with Crohn's Disease and Chronic Pain for the last 20 years of my life. I was diagnosed with my illness when I was only 15, I am 37 now. I've seen many dr.'s for my pain issues and have found that seeing a Pain Management Dr helps a lot, Pain Mngmnt Dr.'s have more knowledge when dealing with pain that your average Primary Care Physician. It is not right of any dr to tell you that you're too young to be in so much pain, Chronic Pain does not have an age, you can start having it at any age and it can be caused by an injury or illness. No dr. has the right to say how much pain you have, you know the best since it is your body. Try seeing a Pain Mngment Dr and if you already have seen one see another one until you find one that will listen to you and give you the respect you deserve. I myself have seen many dr.'s before finding the right one. Good Luck!View Thread
