Had bad back pain since I was ten yrs old. I'm 23 now. I dislike docs cause I'm tired of being judged at drug addict because perks and Oxys are the only thing that take the pain away. Doctors have tried every pain med except perks. I even did taper program and I was out of commission. ( yes not including "sick" days ) my back is messed up. I have been complaing for years.. And all I got was its hereditary, get a massage.. Useless. I'm smart, hardworking.. And now because I was honest and told the doctor I was taking them for pain when I needed it, they won't even listen to me. I don't know how many offices I have walked into and it was a selfish doctor who actually said enough hurtful things that I walked out. I hurt 24/7 , I'm 24 and very petite, I have to help medicate my own pain? Your "young" your fine... I don't waste my time on doctors at all unless something is really wrong.
