It is always difficult to see someone in pain especially when we know there is help out there isnt it? Hoping that when the pain gets to the unbearable point she will seek help and it sounds as if that time is not too far off for her.
Some folks are just kinda hard headed and my Mom was like this and it was the most frustrating thing to deal with but unforunately there isnt alot you can do excpet what your doing already and keep encouraging her to see someone but like said dont let it get you down.
With the HIPPA laws being what they are I am not sure calling her Docs office will do you a bit of good as they cannot talk to you about her medically speaking and even if they do they cannot force her to do anything she doesnt want to do anymore then you can.
Someone asked about family? They may have a better chance of getting somewhere with her Docs but even that is iffy and again what can make her do?
It looks as though you can only keep encouraging her to go and being her friend as long as it doesnt cause you problems with your pain issues and then you want do her or yourself any good. Wait until she gets out of it with pain one of these times and call an ambulance for her but remember seh still can refuse to be treated and this is her right as long as she is in a lucid state of mind.
Good luck to you and your friend.
