I appreciate you posting that. You described it perfectly! I usually keep a pain doc between 7-9 months. The last one was actually for a full year and I thought for sure that they would be my pain care forever. I was out of pills but my refill was for the next day! Can you imagine! Yes Amy urine had no oxy in it. I had run out a week early due to trying to wean myself off the fentanyl patch...I don't think women who are menopausal who can't take HRT meds, should be on any extended release opiates. There is a study that was discontinued in 2003 concerning that. Ok so she decreases my fentanyl and also increases days on patch while knowing new law that she can no longer give me 2 months of prescriptions! Ok I could go on forever with complaints but I think I need to learn how to roll joints LOL

Kwik kratom. It's $8 per oz with no shipping costs. The place is in Florida. My orders are in my hsv al mailbox in 3 days.... hell I have an order on its way now for 3 red strains. The site has hundreds of positive reviews. I'm a 185 lb man so I have a tolerance but it helps a little. I'm also a nurse and after a ton of research and Dr. questions, it seems to be a safe alternative....google the kratom bible for great info....

I'm a HSV AL nurse and I can tell you with first hand inside knowledge that the Aggerwal bust terrified doctors. Even known pill mills check urine and levels to make sure you're taking the meds exactly as prescribed. I guess it's understandable but the way people on pain meds are viewed and treated disgusts me. It's like a drug dealer insulting you for buying their product while constantly threatening to cut you off. Many need these meds but live with constant unhealthy fear and stress of being cut off and cast into a physical and mental hell. God bless the few left who understand the dependance and treat their patients as equal human beings......most of them don't and THOSE doctors are scum, keep in mind I'm a man who works along side them. I see their negligence daily ....sadly it's not considered negligence by their peers.

Posters,

Obama or Oduma has everything to do with your pain and suffering.

Even when the DEA did a 3 state bust recently Alabama still has more physicians handling chronic intractable pain then anywhere in the U.S. I realize many of the posts are from 2013 but what I am reading is wrong, it is the so called president who has destroyed opioid use and intentionally he now on the 120 mg. morphine equivalent has us meaning pain management patients grouped with addicts.

He was prescribed 2 15mg morphine and 4 30mgs oxycodone and ya'll are saying he was over medicated and that's why his doctor was shut down??? With his low to normal dose, his doctor shouldn't have had a problem--imho his extended release morphine should be higher and most folks (patients) know that 6 a day of 30mg oxy leads to a normal life and 4 make it just barely tolerable--William was not getting too much

I know its not my drs "fault", its just me & my husband in our household so leaving my medication out was never an issue when & if I ever did i always kept it locked up but on this particular day we were rushing out the door to get somewhere, I got my medicine out, took my dose & just left it on an end table in our den. We left, just so happens my son came over to get a piece of mail he got here that I had told him about days ago. He has a key for emergencies, he had a friend with him that day & they both came in, at one point, as im gettin the story from my son, he had went to the rest room leaving the boy alone briefly, my son had no idea that I was even on pain meds bc that was my decision to not let anyone know hopin situations like this wouldn't happen, so im tryin to be discrete in askin him details of the events that happened while they were here, therefore the reason I didn't involve the law is bc im sure they would be questioning my son on the boys name, then releasing what I been trying to keep a secret.

I would understand my dr not wanting to give me something in its place if the story of "my pills got stole" was a repetitive thing with me but I have never had a story as to why I was short on my meds. If I ever took to many & ran out early bc I do have worse days than others, hes aware of this but refused to write me any breakthrough meds. He did once but later found out that it and my reg meds cancel each other out so I wasn't gettin anything off of either of them but he did not replace it with anything else.

I would have nvr went to the ER had his office not told me to go & even said they would help me with the withdrawals. But once the ER dr called me a liar then refused to talk to the nurse on call I was pissed, the nurse could hear him refusing to talk to her & she couldn't believe what was goin on either, thats why when I got the call that the dr wasn't goin to see me anymore bc of that situation was a total shock, im like where is that nurse that heard everything, why is she not speakin up?

But ive had other issues once I went bck to my reg dr that would have ur head spinning again. I just cant believe the behavior & lack of caring about their patients that ive witnessed with other ppl then of course that ive recieved, but I am lookin for a different dr as we speak.
Ty for ur feedback tho. I appreciate it.
oh I dont know what u were trying to say about the morphine. I am allergic to morphine and that is one of the new scripts my dr wrote me that I had to take back to his office to get something else. The meds was called something else so I didn't know it was a different form of morphine, so that was enough to scare the sh#$ outta me bc he is well aware of my allergies. It went downhill from there with bogus prescriptions he was writing me that I couldn't get filled. My insurance just happened to be all caught up as far as my deductible & co pays, all met so I wasn't havin to pay $65 every visit anymore, I was paying $0, after that my dr lost interest in helping me.

Not right off hand but if u find one or have one that will actually listen to u and want to help u will u pls let me know. I got one that helped for a lil while but would not write me anything for breakthrough pain therefore I would run out of my reg pain medicine about a week & a half early, go thru withdrawals & get in trouble when I went back for my schedule appt yet he refused to even at least up the mg on my reg med so maybe it last longer on managing my pain. Then once my deductible & co pays were all met & I was having to fork out $65 per visit but now paying $0 he decides to try different medications that either my pharmacist had nvr heard of, didn't even know if they could get & if they could then my insurance wouldn't cover em, instead of him writing me something else he would have the nurses tell me that he wasn't going to write me anything else, so yes i had to buy some from friends just to keep from hurting & doing the withdrawals, after 3 mths of this I decided to just try & get off of the pills so he puts me on zubsolv, after taking it for 3 days, twice a day I was puking my guts out, I couldn't eat or sleep from staying nauseous from it & from hurting, called his office to see if this was a common side effect or should I keep taking it for my body to get used to it, I didn't see vomiting in any of the paperwork, I got told by a nurse that he was not writing me anything else, I said I didn't ask him to, I wanna know about the side effects, was told that the dr said for me to go to the ER if I wanted to that there was nothing he could do for me. U know as well as I do the ER would just write u a script for nausea medicine, which I already had 2 bottles of nausea medicine, and tell u to follow up with ur dr.. I am so aggravated at him, disappointed & wonder if its got anything to do with not having to pay anything for my visits now, seems to be such a coincidence that he's failure to care & do his job properly & do whats in the best interest of his patient happened at the very same time as my not paying did.

you need to try kratom. I have severe fibromyalgia, so does my adult son, and we took pain meds for years too- until we moved up north and couldn't get ANY!
I ordered my own tramadol in the mail with no script until they put it in a narcotic catagory, so I was forced to find a natural alternative- I found kratom! It gives you energy, a nice buzz, and pain relief. There are many different strains of it, some strains even help you relax. Google it, it works..the governmnet has already made it illegal in Indiana (the extract), Tennessee, and Wisconsin, and they are working on Florida too...so better get it while you can. It's safe and effective, non habit forming

MiMi you have to know the story of stolen medications is the worst excuse in these times of politically driven cut backs for chronic pain clients.

You must always be responsible for that medication. Do not ever leave medication where someone can steal it. Take it with you at all times--do not leave it at home, it could kill someone who is not tolerant or worse yet a child or animal.

A physician especially in the South will side with a physician. You did have ER visits whereas you asked for opioids and ER physicians very often are impaired they may not be able to write class 2's in the community and are very strict when treating walk in's in the ER. For good cause.

The problem was safeguarding your medication. I have known of pain patients who if that occurred had put aside a small amount each month and had to tolerate the suffering until their next visit. These medications are not replaceable in these times a physician is bound by this new FDA morphine equivalent which is very low and they will likely find too low BUT due to abuse of prescription medications true people with IP suffer (such as myself).

I would not blame the physician. Unfortunately the party who did this to you could have been reported to LE and arrested. I would have done so; the physician was not at fault.

This information from docskep is totally wrong and can cost you a life.

If you have been on any opioid therapy for a long period you should if you want to be off this medication do so with a humane provider who is willing to work with you to lower your dosages comfortably.

My medical records state from the top pain specialist in America "interruption of her medication supply will result in death."

Where do these do gooders come from they do "no good" for those in intractable pain.

Hi Folks I am a professional nurse that is not a high dosage for rare intractable pain.

If you are a rare case it is not even mid range--management should be by a high level specialized care physician who is research oriented.

Who gives a good god damn if he was a pill pusher he helped me and some people Have high tolerance so i don't care if he was gay either either all I know is he kept me from having to get surgery and now I'm driving all over the damn state trying to find a doctor who is not scared to use a pen there is no cure for the type of pain I have I take methadone and whatever else works for my pain basically whatever I get and after my Dr was shut down me and a family member and God knows who else has spent over $100,000 on street meds then I go to a place next to where doctor who was shut down was and all they were interested in doing was cutting open my back and putting it damn needle in it they tell me there is a small risk be paralyzed and that is a risk I'm willing to take so then travel and find another doctor who is also in trouble thanks governor and FDA

Do not use this place! My husband has Chronic back pain and they refused to see him last week because he owed them $1,700 and would not allow him to make payments. These bills occurred all the way from 2008. We never received a bill or nothing. Just all of a sudden we supposedly owed this money.

No TN Valley pain clinic will not help, nor do they care. I been goin to a regular physician for a yr & a half who was prescribing me my pain meds, I built up a tolerance to the mg & he wasn't able to go higher so he referred me to TVPM, first visit went ok other than dr said he was not going to go any higher in mg's than what I was already on, so right off I felt it was a wasted trip, I absolutely loved the dr I had been goin to & would nvr have left him had I known this, then a family member who does not live with us but has a key for emergencys & a friend of his came to get something of the family members while my husband & i was gone, needless to say the remander of my pills got gone. I called Tvpm immediately, well I was upset about my meds being stole but more worried bout withdrawals. Nurse said if that happens go to ER, they were not goin to replace my meds &; I understand that, nxt day withdrawals didnt happen but I been in pain all the day before then that day, I couldn't take it anymore so I go to ER LIKE I WAS TOLD, I explain to ER dr, told they dont replace stolenmeds, I didnt ask for that, he gives me 1 pain pill, that last bout 2 hrs, back in pain, I suffered thru the night then go to ER nxt morning. Got different ER dr, explained again & told him too that my pain mgt dr told me to go to ER, so this one says hes not giving me a narcotic, he gives me something for nausea which im not nauseous, then he gives me a bp pill that suppose to help w/withdrawals, im not withdrawing at this point, im hurting, he writes me script for those 2 medicines, I get em filled knowing its a waste but gonna do it. I called tvpm, told em whats all happpened, still not gonna give me any pain meds just go back to ER, later that night withdrawals set in.. its excruciating as, anyone whos been thru em knows, its worse than the pain that ur on pain meds for. So my husband says lets go to ER, they are goin to do something to help u, what they been doin is wasting ur time, not helpin u at all but billing ur ins out the butt. So we are telling em to do something & quit writing stuff thats not doin anything, get there & I get the first ER dr that i seen. He was goin to give me a shot of a pain reliever, then a script for my reg pain meds, even tho hes been a butt both times I seen him at least he was doin something right this time, next thing I know he comes back in with an attitude sayin he pulled my chart & seen all the times I have been there & accused me of seeking narcotics, I had been there before about 3 different x over an abcess tooth, 3 to be exact, from march to july, the free dental clinic has been closed since April for remodeling. I went to a dentist in April, $2000.00 to pull 3 teeth, that aint happeningx so yes I go to ER if it gets abcessed till the free clinic opens. So when dr says im seeking opiates I tell him, yet again that my pain mgt dr told me to go to ER for pain and/or withdrawals, this dr calls me a liar, flat out im lying, says Dr Gant would never have told me that, I said bull crap, call his office, he refuses to call, so I did, got a nurse, she confirms it says for ER dr to call them, told her he refuses to, hes sitting right there but refuses to get my phone & ask & refuses to go call em himself. Probably bc he had made such a fussbbout callin me a liarl that he didnt want to be embarrassed to know he was wrong, so I hang up with the nurse but not before she expressed to me that she could not believe this dr was treating me this way, he left the room, came back & said he was putting me on the red flag list as narcotic seeking behavior. At this point I didn't care bc for all I knew my dr at tvpm was goin to be made aware of his behavior by his nurse that I was on the phone with that couldn't believe I was gettin treated this way, he also said he wasn't goin to tell dr Gant tho. . As my husband & I are walkin out the ER the nurse whispers for us to go to crestwood, says they are not affiliated with Huntsville hospital so they will not see that this ER dr has red flagged me & I will get treated, so we go,, its 11pm by now, get there, 4:ppl in lobby, took em over an hr to get me back in a room then at 4:30 I still haven't been seen, my husband is livid,, im layin back there in excruciating pain & offered nothing, finally ER dr comes, is goin to get me a pain pill & write me a script for some, she leaves, comes back & informs me I been red flagged. I explain the situation, shes not the least bit concerned with the facts, so we leave no better off than when we got there, other patients were expressing their opinions about the sorry service too. Nxt day I call tvpm to inform of the stupid medicines I had received& the prescriptions. Couple hrs later I get a call from a guy from dr Gants office, hes not goin to see me anymore. I said WHY? I did everything I was supposed to do. His office told me to go to ER, I did, I reported, all meds given to me, but nothin to it they cancel my appt, said to find me a another dr.also said that the ER dr told Dr Gant that I said that Dr Gant & I have a verbal agreement that I can go anywhere & get opiots. That is a flat out lie, I said I was verbally told to go to ER if im in pain & for withdrawals. The guy says well Dr Gant is gonna believe the dr over u.. I was furious, first of all how ridiculous does what he said I said sound, how would anybody believe a dr had told a patient that its ok to go opiates from anybody, that even sounds ridiculous to me, I would have nvr said that. But I ended up havin to go to my original dr who couldn't believe I was treated this way too, hes been seeing me over a yr & knew the type of person I was. I was doin what I was told to do & I got punished. I was honest about everything everytime I went to ER, but I still got screwed, im a firm believer in Karma & God takin care of those that wrong u so that dr is in for a rude awakening.But my original dr got me fixed up
So no thanks to TVPM & Dr Gant, but a big Thanks to my original dr who has compassionfor his patients., im back to my old self & out of pain.

I am 24 years old. While I was pregnant with my oldest I threw my back out helping my grandmother back into her bed when she fell one night, after I had my son I was diagnosed by MRIs with 2 buldging/herniated discs, dengenerative disc disease, sciatica, and rheumatoid arthritis. Since then I have buldged another disc and one of the original injured discs have began to, in a nutshell, crumble. I have been seeing the same doctor I was seeing at 16, for migrane prevention. For the past 5 years I have taken 2-3 Norco 7.5s daily, 90 350mg somas/month, & 60 .25 mg xanax/month. My doctor was investigated after Aggarwal and although he was not shut down, he still would not increase my dosage after my new documented injuries, despite telling me i do need surgery, but after we have talked he decided it is not feasible for my lifestyle, I am the sole provider/caregiver for 3 small children, & with the dangers that come with the surgery I need, the risks outweigh the benefits. He was out of town about 6 months ago and I had to see another dr in his office, who treated my grandmother and knew my case very well. He did increase my dosage to 75 norco 10s a month, all of my other medication has remained the same other than the tramadol he added to my regiment and an increase in my mobic to treat my arthritis. My issue is that my pain medication is still not doing its job, now I am not out here trying to find this extremely strong pain medication that everyone else seems to get, but the only thing that has helped my back in years are the percocet 10s I recieved after my c sections. I don't have insurance at the moment and I need to find a doctor thatI don't have to drive 2 hours to see and that will actually help me. All I want is to be able to function normally again. I have all the documentation I need to get that strong crap, but I don't want that... i want reasonable management. Can anyone please help me!!! I live in the Huntsville, AL area.
