Can you please make a suggestion of type of pain medication (non narcotic please) I can ask either my primary or my gastro for? I have CD and arthritis (in addition to have intracranial hypertension that was treated with a lumbar peritoneal shunt). I still suffer headaches etc. Due to the CD I have ulcers in my stomach itself and not able to take NSAIDs. My medication list is:
Methotrexate 20 mg weekly
Nexium 40mg daily
Prednisone (down to 5mg currently but have not been able to get off of it completely)
Skelaxin (when needed)
My family doctor has informed me that she won’t prescribe anything because my case is “complicated”. My Gastro has told me to see my primary physician. I am currently looking for an “internal medicine” doctor since I do seem to be more “complicated” than your average person.
Thanks in advance,
