I'm a stay at home mom. I feel like I have way too much on my plate especially lately I'm in a lot of pain a lot of the time. luckily, I have a medical marijuana card. I don't know how to talk to a doctor about how my pain is effecting my dad to day life and have them take me seriously. I've tried many times and I'm never taken seriously. any advice??

      When you say not taken seriously, is it them undervalued the strain of your day to day activities (cause moming is hard, I know) or are they literally not believing the severity of your pain?

      A bit of both, but mainly the second one.

      I had nerve pain for years in my hands and arms and when cortisone shots didn't work, I was treated like I was drug seeking, even though I made clear I wasn't interested in taking strong addictive pain meds. I finally had some sort of nerve testing done (I'm sorry I don't remember what it was called) that showed that my nerve speed was remarkably faster than the average persons, causing me to experience pain faster and more intensely. I also was diagnosed with joint hypermobility, which helped explain alot about why I experienced joint pain ever since I was a kid. There is physical therapy that can help with that. You may want to look into that.
