It is difficult for many doctors to recognize and treat chronic pain.
Both need enlightened guidelines that acknowledge the condition as real and treatable.

Prolonged serious pain= emotional injury & disability

if you or someone you know is suffering from chronic pain and exhibiting problems with anger and depression get a referral for counseling and therapy.
it is only treatable with professional help.

i have the same reponse now as I had to your prior post:

you should start your own thread.
ask your doctor for a referral for counseling.
you can get a one time change of physician.
