Jinxy, I own a home in the NE AL. I want to live there but if there isn't anyone to continue my pain care- meaning my COT therapy? Then I won't be able to retire there in my home I have owned for 8 years. How sad it is to be an American but have no freedom in our own country because of DEA fear! This IS criminal and should not be allowed. The governor of AL is a doctor! He should understand what pain is. After all he signed a proclamation that Fibromyalgia month is Sept, or Oct. How strange..
I have been looking for doctors there. From reading on blogs, it seems there are only needle jockey's there. Big money for them and no help for the long term pain patients. A sad situation until more people start speaking OUT LOUD in AL about having their pain patients Bill of Rights to be honored there! Start advocating. Build groups and go to your state capitol and rally for your rights! We are doing just that in FL. The pendulum has swung too far and needs to be brought back to a balance. God Bless the suffering.. IN AL and everywhere else.

The dose this patient was taking was not to high of a dose. Just not prescribed correctly. I am talking about The man posting the original comment. In fact, for chronic pain patients, it is under dosing for some one that has been in pain management for several years. For Chronic pain patients, it's not usual for them to take larger doses than say a cancer patient or a post op patient. It's very normal to develope a tolerance at some point but... for many, once the pain is controlled, then it is rare need an increase of the dose for a very long time. Many people stay on that same dose for years and do fine. A main medication should be given for chronic pain along with a break through medication, preferably with no Tylenol added. I do see that the main med dosing is lower than the BT dose. Perhaps that's why the doctor got into trouble. It should be a higher main dose to a lower dose- 30 % of the main med for Bt pain. A proper dose would be more like 60 mgs 3x a day of morphine to 30mg oxycodone 3 or 4 x a day. Doctors need proper education on how to dose patients. Unfortnately in med school? They only a few hours of schooling to treat pain. Since pain is the 5th vital sign? We would think that doctors would get more education on this subject these days. Better pain management is must because of lack of proper dosing is causing under treatment of pain. Alabama from what I have heard, has mainly shot jockeys. These steroid inj's. for everyone's information? Are NOT FDA approved for the spine!! Beware of getting a disease called "Arachnoiditis". Nothing should be even getting near the dura space near your spine. Even needle guided larascopy is not safe. It's only takes the tip of the needle to puncture the dura to cause this painful condition and there is no cure and it will progress. No doctor in the world is going to tell you, OOps... I just punctured your dura. Sorry. So beware of these procedures and from what all I heard? AL is full of pain docs that insist you do these. Do know? It's against your rights to make you get these inj's. or procedures or I won't give you any medicine for your pain! That is coercion and isn't legal.

Jinxy, not sure how far you are but there is a good PM doc in Cullman AL

This is a "roundabout" way of looking for PM but if you do a search for the name of the med that helps you, the state you live in and the word publica (no it is not misspelled use the word as written) then you should have a list that pops up for your state.

For example you can google Lyrica Florida publica No commas

Next, click on the link that says something like top prescribers in **** state (your state)

Filter through the list for those closest to you. Also it will tell you next to their name what type of practice they specialize in, so that will help you too

hope this helps

Who was your doctor in Nashville TN.I have chronic pain and hurt every single day.My family doctor was giving me 120 Oxycodone 30mg. But he too got in trouble for writing so much because he is not a pain management doctor he is just a primary doctor.and he cut me to 100 Oxycodone 15mg.witch is better than nothing but they are not touching my pain.I have done physical therapy, spinal epidurals and still hurt everyday.I am trying to find a doctor that will just try to keep my pain at a level where I can tolerate it.

sad mom and wife Says:
Hello, I've read through 5 pages of posts, and I am amazed at some of the things I've read. I am a chronic pain patient, I'm 47 years old and I have no quality of life. I can't do my housework, cook, bathe by myself or anything I used to do. I was a happy hard working mother of 3, until I hurt my back. I used to work 8 to 10 hours a day, cook, clean my home, help my children with homework, take them to their activities, and was always so happy I had a loving fun relationship with my husband. We were, to be polite very intimate relationship. Now I'm in bed all the time except not in a good way. We haven't had a intimate relationship in over a year because he hates to see me hurt even more than I already do. My life is so sad and painful, I sometimes wish I could end it all. I've got so many things wrong with my back, both of my knees have been replaced ( they hurt just as bad now as they did before) my right hip needs to be replaced, I have neuropathy in both feet and my hands, no grip in my hands no reflexes in my ankles which makes me fall quite often. Anyway I'm a mess. I used to see a pain doctor in nashville TN after my PCP sent me for my pain management. He was so kind and he hurt himself so he understood what it was like. He gave me 450, 30mg oxycodone a month. He told me to take 3 of them 5 times a day. I never took that many but he said if I needed that many to take them but if I didn't then I could take what I thought I needed as long as I didn't take more than that. I only went to see him every 3 months. I lived so far away and had trouble getting someone to take me that he did that to help me out. He also wrote me 3 scripts post dated each month. The pharmacy almost passed out the first time I took that script in. But when I explained it to him he said that was nice of him. My doctors health declined and he had to retire. He made sure he found a doctor to take the patients that he knew really needed one. I had enough meds to last me 7 months after he retired. The new doctor put me on 100mg morphine 3 times a day and 15mg oxycodone 4 times a day for breakthrough pain. It worked pretty good at first but after a year and a half I had built up a tolerance to it but the doctor wouldn't change or increase it. Then he closed down without a warning or anything. Luckily the doctor that Did the shots in my back (which by the way didn't help at all) said he would treat me. He doesn't like giving meds so he cut my morphine down to 80mg the first time and now this month he cut them down to 60mg. Even though I told him I suffered so bad this past month, he just said well we all have problems. I have MRI' s, X-RAYS, CAT SCANS, MILOGRAMS and medical records satin back to 1995 when I first hurt m back and had surgery. He agreed that my back is in terrible shape but that's no reason to take so much medicine. He said if you are in severe pain then you will pass out and if you don't then it's not considered severe. I told him that I could tell he had never been in pain because if he had he would be begging for meds. Needless to say I'm looking for a new doctor. It is so sad that we have to suffer and not be able to live at least a half way decent life. Maybe one day things will change infill then may GOD Bless you and ease your pain and give doctors some compassion for us all.

Hey Levett, I don't blame you one bite. I didn't know you had other helath problems on top of dreading the withdrawals. I know for a fact that Marijuana helps so much with withdrawals but unfortunately we are in Alabama.
