Why Won't Doctor Listen?

Why do I have to kick and scream to get my doctor to listen? I have chronic daily pain because I have severe tmj with neuropathy thru out my face. And I am on 4 medications and my body is so used to the medications that it work's about half the time.
The pain breaks me down to the point of where I just want it to be over. And then I think of my children and husband. They are my reasons for living and enduring this daily pain. My pain ranges from 4 to 8-9 on the pain scale.
I just wish they could just help me instead of making me jump through hoops and cartwheels and having me prove how much pain I am in.
It's ridiculous. It's insane. I feel like I have to scream in the doctors face to get any help. Why does it have to be so hard?
