    Find a new Dr. You may need to see a pain specialist if your family Dr doesn’t treat pain. My Dad had the same problem and his Oncologist told him he didn’t treat pain, but he referred him to a pain specialist. With all the negativity about addiction and over prescribing I think a lot of Doctors are afraid to prescribe pain medicine but make no mistake, your Doctor was rude and uncaring to snicker at you! Your pain is real and you need a Doctor who understands that.

    Hi Lyn and thanks for your post. I really would NOT expect that from your medical doctor. What you need is compassion and understanding from your physician!
    To respond to your concern about COPD and pain, I thought this article on that very topic might provide you with additional insight: https://copd.net/clinical/tips-managing-pain/. I hope you find it to be helpful. Warm regards, Leon (site moderator)
