When I asked my doctor for pain meds it was pretty casual.
I basically told her about two recent incidents that had left me in a lot of pain (muscle spasms after an MRI-3 days) and how that had impacted my life-events I missed or was miserable through.
Then I told her that I can't take codiene or its stronger relatives and why.
Then I sat there with an amused look on my face while she came up with an acceptable drug.
If I had been asking for something to take every day I might have had a better plan in place-but this worked for me and my doctor. Of course she thinks I am nuts since I am asking for pain relief but nothing related to codiene.
