I’m not getting the same pain relief as before. Dosage is 13.5 ER 2x times daily.

"Treatment" Option?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone else's pain management doctor gone so far as to suggest that PAS, physician assisted suicide, is "an option" for treating your intractable pain? Since when has this " treatment" been acceptable!?

Can Anyone Recommend A Compassionate Pain Management Doctor And His/her Clinic Inn Reno NV?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I just moved here. Am about to get United Healthcare (a Medigap plan). I'm on hydrocodone/ acetaminophen, 3 pills a day plus morphine sulfate ER, 15 mgs. Been taking this amount for 8 years. ( Finally got my Kaiser doctor in CA to add a 4th, but she started a taper when the crap new CDC guidelines came out last year.) I'm so worried a new Dr will try and cut me back even more. My quality of life would be zero, if that happens! Thanks in advance for any recomendations!

I've had no constipation issues. It's calcium supplements that bind me up! I use Sena, an OTC stool softener and/or liposomal vitamin c.

Contracts
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Did anyone else have to sign a contract with their Dr.? I had to sign a promise that I would not accept any controlled substance from any other Dr. Or his service will be terminated.

When I was taken to the ER with a fractured clavicle I had no idea what they were giving me in the IV. I FOUND OUT LATER.

I found out from my family Dr. That CBD drops will affect your urine test and will show up. BE FOREWARNED.

Contracts are malarkey. We are treated worse than injured animals and pets.

Forgetfullness
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Who else, besides me, forgets sometimes all your symptoms or issues when you go to the ER or a specialist and need to write them down in a pocket book to refer to? What other things do you do to remember?

A MyChronicPainTeam Member

@A MyChronicPainTeam Member I had that happen to me a couple times as well. I got defensive and called out the doctor. Then I reported my situation to a higher authority, needless to say the next time… read more

They Don't Care About My Pain
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Because I have a few other conditions, that may be life threatening. I can't get the doctors o focus on my pain.

To be frank I don't care if the other things kill me, if they don't relieve the pain life isn't worth living anyway.

Anyone else had this problem, how did you get the doctors to understand.

A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭
A MyChronicPainTeam Member

Hi If I wait for the pain to get severe, I will be going 911 to the ER at the hospital. I know my body enough to know the difference in pain level.

I have been diagnosed with neuropathy but doctors cant find the cause. i am not diabetic.

Is DEA Going To Crack Down On Those Who Take Pain Meds For Real Pain More Than What They Have Done Already?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband told me that Pres. Trump said he’d like to do away with half of all pain meds use! I’ve been on pain meds off and on from 21 to mid 30’s since I had received approx. 20+ surgeries in that time. Then 20 years ago ruptured L-4 and L-5, L-5 S-1. Pain was unbearable . I’ve been on them straight since then , Oct 21st at 1:10 pm ,1997. You don’t forget the date that changed your life. I’ve been treated like a drug seeker all my life on meds. Once and awhile you’ll find a dr who knows pain… read more
