I have no idea, but I'd imagine it's when your medication isn't working.
I've only been pain medication a few times, and I was in the hospital by the time I got off of them.

They're so strict. I'm too scared to tell them.

Quoting polkaspots: I have no idea, but I'd imagine it's when your medication isn't working. I've only been pain medication a few times, and I was in the hospital by the time I got off of them.

unfortunately people who are refereed to pain clinics are often pegged as drug seekers. when the majority of the time, they just suffer from chronic pain of some sort, and as you take narcotics your tolerance skyrockets, there fore, people need more and more, and are pegged as addicts.

If you ask for more, they think you are an addict and cut you off.

My dh is a nurse practioner at a pain clinic.   

Trust me, they will think you are drug seeking.

Why are at a pain clinic?  

*added*

If you are on something like tramadole, they may listen.

If you are on a time release pain med and benzos you will look like a drug seeker.

90% of the patients my guy sees are  drug seekers.

I think pain management facilities are jaded, they'll likely assume you're drug seeking.

The only people I know that go to pain clinics are addicts or dealers. So Idk. If the drugs you are on aren't working then maybe instead of upping the dosage try changing the meds.
