My GI offered my vicodin which I cannot take, this was back in 2002. I ended up being ref to a pain mgt dr, due to low back pain, neck pain and both knees. I have a low history of CP. I now have a pain pump because I do not tolerate orals meds well. you do know you can get arthritis due to the CD. Most gi;s do not like to rx pain meds and neither does the PCP's. Ask for a ref to a pain mgt dr and see if you can get help.
