I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If ANYONE knows of a good doctor that prescribes strong meds willingly in the Denver area please email me and let me know. I am in desperate need of help as I am going to be SCREWED if I cannot find a good doctor. SOMEONE please help me with a doctor!!!!!

Desperately searching for a legitimate Pain Management doctor who isn't afraid to write a script for Oxycodone. I have medical records. I can't seem to find a doctor who will work with me!!!! I'm going to be out of meds on the 17th and my current doc isn't going to renew my script!!! :-( I'm freaking out and the stress of dealing with this is causing the symptoms to flare. This whole thing going on now with prescription drugs in complete bull---t!!!! What are people like us, that really need the meds, supposed to do?!! I live in Ft Collins but will drive wherever necessary. Thanks for any help you can give.

I was telling Niki that I think jetmech has issues with dealing with whatever is going on in his life. That (like Janey said) we need see what we can help him deal with. It's really hard for some people to deal with the fact that they aren't what they used to be.
I think the part bothering all of us, is that he seems to have assumed a lot about a lot of us and all of it being negative :)
I encouraged him not to give up on CO and return to WA when he was having trouble finding the medical care he needed. Again, my fault, I've asked people not to run him off, cause I was hoping we could help. I've been trying to understand where all his negative is coming from. Lots of us have been sick a very long time and what he is going through, at least one of us has experienced. The whole idea is to help him. But so far he's reaching out by attacking, which isn't productive for him and isn't very nice for us. As long as he continues to judge in such a negative manner, we can't help him. Again, it's sort of strange, why come to people who are here to help, then reject them as "not good enough" to help? I also thought may be, as he's not feeling so great about himself, he's attacking us in the hopes that it'll make him feel better. The "at least I'm not that" sort of thought process.
With the comments he made about DEA, I had a group of paranoid thoughts, one being that he is that Junkie person using a different name and different computer, trying to upset the apple cart again LOL Paranoid thoughts !! :)

Janey... I've been wondering the same thing about JetMech.
Jet... Every time you post, it is to tell us that we are weak, stupid, useless drug-seekers.... In some way. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why you take some sort of perverse joy in putting us down. None of us claim to be experts or doctors... We are just a group of people who seek friendship and support from others who deal/suffer in the same ways we do. Because honestly, and you SHOULD know this, unless you have dealt with pain and doctors and ridicule and suspicion, you cannot understand it. Yet, you CLAIM to have had these issues... But continue to degrade this group with every post.
I am one of those people that, if you saw me in person, you wouldn't know that I have back pain 100% of the time. I volunteer in my kids' school... I am on the PTA board... I don't walk with a cane or have screws in my back... Yet my pain is REAL. I have chosen to push through the pain to live a life for my young kids... If I have to take meds to do it, so be it. I am not high... I am not abusing.... I am not neglecting my family.
I HAVE had several injections... Two ablations... Physical therapy... And have searched out doctors to help DIAGNOSE my pain... But we can't fix it... Yet.
Please... If you cannot be a positive, supportive person with critical feedback... not CRITICIZING feedback... Please stop coming on here. You claim to be so happy in your life, but I don't think anyone who constantly puts down others can truly be a joy-filled person.

Does it give anyone else a smile that the "Primary Care Physician"'s acronym is "PCP"?
Or, for that matter, that a credit card machine says, "Swipe your card"?

(I'm just in a silly mood today.)
Grins,
Dave

I love all of you guys thanks for all of the support. I'm ready for our group meeting. I'm still bed bond with the shunt. I'm can't find a neuro that will take medicaid. So far I'm ok. Everyone Susie right we all are worried over what happens at one clinic with the Dea it effects us all. Please don't let some guy bring u down or insult us because he found a doctor willing to listen to his bs. Keep going to Cpr or Smiths. I have a list from medicaid that has pain management doctors. Everyone we can have a meeting here or potluck asap I miss all of u.

There has been a lot of competition between some of the medical facilities in the Denver area. Someone decided to sink to a new low, of calling DEA and reporting the other facility for violations of DEA policy. The facility that was "ratted on", is who told that they had been reported and were being inspected for violations. No law prohibits the inspected or investigated facility from telling the whole world what's happening.

Question: Why would you think that we don't want to be "cured" or "fixed"?

2nd Question: Why do you think that we don't use alternative means for pain control, other than our pain medication?

No one is committing any federal infraction by discussing DEA ongoing investigations. The "BS" as you call it, comes from the discussions of DEA memos concerning compliance with DEA policy. The "civilians" are in a state of panic, because of DEA memos. "Civilians" react to DEA memos, the same as IRS memos, with fear. There should be a huge difference between an agency developing a policy and an enforceable law, but that hasn't always been so. As "civilians" have been subjected to "monetary penalties" and even jail time for violation of a federal agency's "policy", they are scared. Result - lots of rumors.

jetmech2 I dont know want you pain is from but some of us may look ok from the outside but know one knows what is going on inside that you dont see that causes some off us great pain. People that have cronic pain should be calling it intractable pain, intractable pain can not be fixed by ant surgery or any other way. Most drs. see cronic pain as some thing that physical therapy or stimulators can help so they dont want to give high doses of pain meds which is the only way some of us civilians can get out of bed and live a half way normal life. I've been on pain meds for over 20 yrs and been through every test and therapy the drs. told me to do. the legit pain patients have seem to have lost some of our rights because we have to live on pain meds which isn't that great of a life, i've had surgery which didnt solve the pain seems that i,m in more pain now than before surgery. those of you that say you have cronic pain need to be refering to it as intractable pain instead of cronic. there are drs. that have practices that treat intractable pain as they can give higher doses of meds dependining on your type of pain. jetmech2 I was in air force so us civilians do know a thing or two about our own bodies and how much pain we are in and what it takes to control the pain.

Your taking it wrong .I've been personally told by two patients from the Smith what's going on .Plus I been there when he's told my husband he's letting go off CPR patients they get a lot of drug seekers know .Why is everyone concerned if your not with Cpr or The Smith mind your own business JETMECH . EVERYONE this started because of a pharmacy a noisy gal .A x cpr person was mad because they couldn't get meds from Smith either they called Dea .The Smith now have to watch p' s and q's .There not pain management there not suppose to write high narcotics long term .
