Perhaps the right thing to do to convince your Dr would be to ask him to refer you to a pain management clinic.

They will be better equipped to address the cronic pain than many Dr's are.

I am sorry that I can't offer anything mre.

Hi Billi, maybe he thinks you want another pill in addition to the one that you are on.
You could ask him that since the lortab is wearing out now, can he put you on
new meds, one for the everyday pain, so that you can move around the house, and something for the breakthru flares. I'm sorry, but that is all I can think of right now. Do let us know how it goes.
