I'm so very sorry!! My hubby is a large man and is over 6 feet tall and gets told this all the time! It's very offensive and he wasn't ever asked if he wanted to try even migraine meds until we learned about
them and insisted!!! He was told to 'tough it out' for years!! Ridiculous!!
Anyway, back to you
I would suggest that you try turmeric, boswellin, & ginger. My pain was controlled by turmeric and ginger combined with a well experienced acupuncture therapist. I still use 4500 mgs of both turmeric and ginger every day - split into three doses, and the acupuncture.
All nerve pain that I had was pretty well taken care of by the use of Avena Sativa tincture (Wild Oats in the "milky" stage). I took 20 drops three times a day when I was at my worst.
Then I'd say get different docs!!! If they don't believe that you are in pain like that, how can you trust that they believe some of your other symptoms or the severity of them??? Either way, I hope that you get some relief soon!
