Chronic Pain and the endless loop of doctors

Interesting article here about chronic pain patients and the difficulty of finding treatment.

I know for a fact that my pain is under treated since there is never a time where I am not in a tremendous amount of pain.  I’m lucky that I do have a doctor who is willing to prescribe heavy pain medication, it’s my choice to not take it since I feel the side effects would keep me from taking care of my kids. Unfortunately  many people aren’t lucky enough to have such as understanding doctor and they suffer needlessly or get labeled as pain killer addicts.  It’s just another stressful part of being chronically ill.
