Us the goverment planning to force chronic pain sufferers to go off their opiates?
Is anyone staying abreast of this whole #opioidscrisis #opioidepidemic #dea #Kolondny going on?
And, are you concerned about losing your medications or have you already lost them?
I know that they are bad people out there, but we are not one of them, and yet we get treated like we are bad, because we are in pain and what helps us is being decided by people who do not feel what we do
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
I happened upon a survey/Questioner from the national pain report. They are fighting back amongst the effects the opioid crisis is having, tying our doctors hands in properly treating us with the medications we need. They collected 1700 questioners along with each patients stories. A few weeks ago their findings and recommendations were brought before the F D A. We are fighting back!!!!! The findings and recommendations can be found in part one and part two of the report. They do have a… read more
I have been having a rough weekend with my pain and my depression/anxiety and more so, far of what is to come, after recently finding out I’m being forced off of my pain medication. My health insurance is stating that they are tapering me down due to the obvious opioid crisis going on in the world which I completely understand, but to leave me with so many questions, no choice in this decision, no non-opioid medications or alternative treatment options being considered or offered, no plan if… read more
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.
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. When the new proposals are announce, I want to be very ready to get active in trying to be sure that those of us in chronic pain are not ignored in the process. 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
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.
I’ve been to neuros, chiros, phys therapy, acupuncturist, massage, I am looking into and considering going to a pain management clinic for chronic neck and shoulder pain. Can anyone tell me if they’ve had helpful or unhelpful experiences with pain management?
