5/2/24 Pain Meds

I pinched a nerve in my neck.  My pain is shooting down my arm and causing pain. I would rate it an eight or nine on the scale. I went to see a doctor on Monday and she refused to give me any kind of pain medication. And then I saw my PCP yesterday who also refused to give me any pain medicine. At this point, after talking to several other people about this, I’m convinced that no doctor prescribes pain medicine anymore. My doctor told me that the only reason he would prescribe pain medicine is if someone is going through cancer or dying. I was flabbergasted by this. I was like “why do they even make pain medicine if no doctor is going to prescribe it?“. I’m really hoping that physical therapy takes care of this. If you know of a doctor that does prescribe pain meds I would love to know that!
