Carol, I'm sorry about
your pain. Its awful,they just think we can suffer. Sometimes I thnk these docs are misogynists, hate women,maybe got takento the cleaners in their divorce. I guess Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde aren't so differnt after all. I'm glad you are getting decent treatment from the others. I cant get one to care if I live or die, wont do anything, order tests or anything. Well, it sounds like the woman doc was a bit spacey too on the pain med thing so its not just the men. I hope you can get something soon. I take ultram. it isn't a narcotic and isnt an antiinflammatory, but takes the edge off. I hope you are okay as can be. YOu must be sick of docs though. Does it seem to you that they lack common sensesometimes? I don't know, I think Darwin lied. People aren't getting smarter as we "evolve"...
