How can one get a PCP to hear you, when you say, the mild narcotic he prescribes isn't doing the job. My PCP refuses to go beyond even the mildest narcotic pain med. I explain, he says "No". If I run out early, which I always seem to do, as sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and need a tablet to get back to sleep, due to pain, or else I end up, not sleeping, at all. I get so tired of it all. I also get migraines for which I am prescribed Zomig, a triptan, costs $100. for 6, and I need eight to ten as I get about 6 migraines per month, and once they take hold, it takes sometimes two tablets to knock it out. I am supposed to see him tonight to get a paper signed to get more than 6 per month. I also need muscle relaxers, and I sure hope he doesn't yell at me. Signing off now. Best o you all.
