And welcome to the Chronic Pain family. You don't say what causes your pain I have fibromyalgia and a collapsed disk and live on pain meds 24/7. I hate it but the alternatives are worse.
If you want to get your doc to listen they need to know what your days are really like. Start a Pain Journal! Each day, several times a day, write down how you are feeling and pain level from 1-10; what you did to help relieve the pain; did it work; what you were doing at the time; feelings, etc. Take it to your doc appointments and ask your doc to please read it. He/she will get a good insight into how your pain is or is not being controlled. I often works very well and is worth your time.
