    I had to ask my uro for something for pain. She prescribed tramadol and percocet for breakthrough pain. She gave me a script for 75 pills with 3 refills. I have yet to go through the first 75 and I got my script in jan. It never hurts to ask. If your uro is uncomfortable if you have a good relationship with ur GP I would ask them.

    Absolutely ask for a pain med if needed. My biggest mistake in the beginning was not telling my uro I needed a pain medication and ending up needlessly suffering for way too long.

    I agree. It will not hurt to ask. I can not live with out them.

    I suggest you ask. If you're not taking pain meds regularly, it's definitely a possibility.

    I would ask. I do have that type of medicine and I take it nightly so I can sleep better without pain & frequency. I also have additional tablets of it that I use during flares.

    Opiates help with my frequency when flaring?

    I'm in a flare right now and what I suffer most is from CONSTANT urination without end. Its very uncomfortable and hard to focus sometimes on what I'm doing. It gets me even more frustrated when I take basically every prescription medicine I have and they do nothing! Argh! There has been one last resort that I have used in past flares that actually almost always works; vicodin or percocet. I had some dental work done and basically didn't use up all my pain medicine so decided during one of my flares to take one to help with the frequency and some pain I was having (bladder feels like its on fire, some minor stabbing pains inside of me) and they work well! So well I felt almost as if I'm cured when on it.

    My question is, would I be able to ask my urologist for some opiate type pain medication just for use during flares? The lowest dose is all I need and probably only like 5 a month at most, just for a last resort.
