I have no idea why Drs treat pain as something that is all in your head. It's hard to explain to a Dr just HOW much pain you are in. Some day someone will invent a device that will transfer your pain to the Dr so he knows EXACTLY how much pain are experiencing at any given moment. I bet after that occurs NO ONE will have to wait for pain medication. If that Dr wouldn't give you pain medication I would go to another one and get a second opinion if that is possible. There is no need for you to be in so much pain. Addiction is a factor in everything in this world but as long as you understand the risks and haven't had a problem with it in the past I don't understand why they aren't taking care of the problem. Tylenol does nothing for me and I have to take at least 4 Advil to do anything when it comes to cramps and the like. I take Bextra and that dulls my back pain but I have to take twice the amount my Dr prescribed. I think he prescribed 10mg and I take 20mg. That still doesn't kill the pain entirely but it definitely lessens the pain. He tells me that I have Bersitis in my hips, knees and back because nothing has ever shown up on the MRI or X-rays. I think I need to go to a chiropractor when I have the $. I DEFINITELY would not go up on the dosage of the Topomax so quickly, you would NOT like the side effects. I have gone up very very slowly and have had a headache. When the tingling(the kind like when you are getting ready to pass out) subsides and the headache subsides I know I can move up. otherwise I am afraid what else would happen should I move up too soon. I think it would be a VERY GOOD idea for you to stay at the dosage you are at for at least 2 weeks before moving up to the next dosage. Why do Dr's seem so careless with this medication? Who knows..anyway..I guess this makes my 4 cents worth now ;P
