Asking doctors for help with pain

Posted by Buck T. on 1/14/04 at 11:58 (142008)

Ive had surgery on one foot and ESWT on the other and honestly, along with new working orthotics, yoga, foortrainers and swimming think I am improving.

Sometimes, I have flareups and must ask for pain medication. My POD has never turned me down but I can tell he doesn't like to be asked. So, I hoard medications. I'm afraid I'll run out of meds and be refused meds and can't control pain. Sure other people feel same way. Any ideas?
