Customer Question
I have multiple sclerosis...

I have multiple sclerosis and I have servere nerve pain all down my left leg and foot. Why do docters not know that the only medications that ease the pain are strong painkillers Endone panadiene forte codiene. I have been given 6 tablets to get through the night. I was in the same state the next day. Why is it not mandantory to give MS patients get given the right medication. Instead of just laying on the bed crying.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?

Yes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No they know all medications Im on. I have to use a wheelchair now.They know how sever my nerve pain is. One said I was the worse hed seen. The pain is so bad I cant live with it any more.
