If your doctor is unwilling to help you develop a pain management plan that includes prescribing medications that adequately control your pain; you may wish to consider changing doctors. This is not a decision that should be made lightly.

Speak to your doctor to determine the reasons for his refusal. Is he concerned about "addiction? Does he fear legal ramifications for writing too many narcotic prescriptions?
