Please tell me how to approach a doctor about
better pain relief.....
My husband suffers from Crohn's related pain; he has had every test imaginable but nothing shows up that could explain the pain. He takes: Pentassa x9 pills daily; percocet x6 pill daily (2 pills every six hours, but not a does at 6am); Remicade (still on induction).
He cannot walk, sit, stand comfortably; forget driving more than 5 minutes! He has been on the percs for >6mos and his pcp is at a loss. He has told us that there isn't anything more that he can give. He tried giving us a referral to pain management, but at the time (we didn't have a DX of Crohn's at the time) they would not even speak to us without a diagnosis.
Yet, I see so many ppl here having their pain treated.....should we push his pcp for someting or should we try the pain management group again since we have a DX now?
Any advice is appreciated.
