A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am collecting information in an attempt to contact those that are making our laws about opioid addiction. I have already contacted some law makers.

Please be very specific if you feel that you have already been affected by new state laws or the national CDC Guidelines for pain managers and their use of opioid. Thanking you all in… read more

It Seems To Be That The Federal Government Including The DEA, Won't Nothing More Than To Stop All Pain Medications,opiates Especially,
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

There doesn't seem to be a thing we can do about it,I've been cut down on the strength of my pain meds so much I'm never out of pain and have no quality of life,my only option is is to cut both my legs off just to get out of pain,it' crazy, I've never failed a drug test, I've always had my pill count and they still keep cutting me down., I see why the suicide rate for seniors is going up,what else are we supposed to do,they want us to die off anyway.

Dr Shaming
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I went to my RA dr.and never before have I ever been 'shamed' because I take medications especially pain meds. He's treating for myalgla pain with a low dose of prednisone for a 30 day trial. It's taken probably 80% of my body pain away but he said I had to agree to stop the narcotics. I have chronic back pain and cannot make it through a work shift without my pain meds. He also told me he wants me off all my other meds, I am to young he says. I have never encountered a Dr like this and was… read more

Is There A Movement To Join To Increase Awareness And Get Laws Passed To Protect The Chronic Pain Patient?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Chronic pain patients are being forgotten about and punished with all these new laws and pressure from the government and states regarding opioid use
Chronic pain patients need help to get the medication they need. Drug addicts now use meth, heroin, etc. They no longer use opioids because they are so hard to get. Help is needed. I am so tired of being treated like an addict. I want my life back, I need help. Opioids is all that helps. Why should I and so many others like me continue to… read more

Has Any One Else Had Their Pain Meds Cut Because Of The Phoney CDC Report On Dosages 90 Mmg Morphine Equalivent ?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

My doctor quoted some CDC report that was intended as a guideline for general practitioners that said no chronic pain patient should be prescribed more then 90mmg of morphine equalivent for chronic pain patients irregardless of pain levels or time on opioids. The DEA jumped all over this reccomdation and is using it to force pain doctors to drasticly cut medications, leaving millions of us in dire pain without help or hope.
