Wow, that is stupid of the Doc to say.
We all know that is a bunch of crap. I have pain even when I am currently in remission.
hang in there... I am on pred for a sinus infection and I went nuts last night. I was a crazy person... I could imagine if you just went off you may also be having some emotions that are harder to handle as I taper I can feel the weepy part of me coming out more.
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 Started Humira June 2008 (have been on other cd meds)
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 on Soma and Lyrica

Dx Primary Sclerossing Cholangitis 2006
GB out '95, Appendix out '96, Kidney stent '02/stone removal '02, Resection '04, fistulectomy '06 2x, tubal '05
Currently on 100mg 6mp-50 mg, and Remicade every 8 weeks, Ambien, predsnisone, humira 1x wk, flagyl, cypro, diflucan, probiotic
I think it is so sad the "bad rap" that goes along with being on pain meds. It is sad that some pharmacists would actually give people the stare down.
This is a painful disease....at times, very, very painful. I have had horrible stomach pain, arthritis, and I cannot begin to tell you how bad Scleritis hurts when my eye flares up! How anyone could think this disease DOESN'T have pain is beyond me.
I am so sorry your doctor said that. I hope you start to feel better soon!
