How are you now? This is horrible. My newest thing to help me with pain is acupuncture. I like going but nothing helps like opioids. Without meds I don’t know what I would do. Hugs.

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

Basically, it all boils down to $$. The u.s. government spent a lot of time eyeing those "opioid suit settlements" to help line their pockets, so they set up the FAKE narrative of an "opioid epidemic"… read more

Is There A Movement To Join To Increase Awareness And Get Laws Passed To Protect The Chronic Pain Patient?

Chronic pain patients are being forgotten about and punished with all these new laws and pressure from the government and states regarding opioid use

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

National Pain Report...a Must Read For Everyone Fighting Back For Medication!!!!!

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.

The findings and recommendations can be found in part one and part two of the report. They do have a… read more

Is Anyone Else Being Forced To Get Off Their Pain Medications?

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

It Seems To Be That The Federal Government Including The DEA, Won't Nothing More Than To Stop All Pain Medications,opiates Especially,

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.

Have You In Any Way Been Impacted By The New CDC Guidelines That Pain Managers Are Using To Require Reductions In Opioids?

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

Contracts

Contracts

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.
