That's right, they won't take my insurance either. It came down to buy food or see the Doc in Walnut Creek. I'll go hungry. It really is no choice at all...

Hi Sar,

My first visit with a new Doctor is on April 12. I'm told he does/can/will treat intractable pain patients: I've yet to find out. This visit is costing me $150.00 to walk in the door. Yes, I'm on a fixed income, no I can't afford it. I also Can't afford to suffer with my pain. I'm gladly going into debt to see this gentlemen. Here it is:

Dr. Bradford Flagg
925-277-1600
Danville, CA.

Stay in touch, let us know how you are, and Good Luck!

Hurtingman,

Hiya P450, I hope your having a decent day today! I was comin back to let the gentleman, Hurtingman, know I found one thread with 1 or 2 posts from 2015 re: looking for Pain management in Memphis. I left a response for that person to let me know whether she found a doc. There's a chance she may not respond since it was September, '15 when she did her search but you never know! I 2nd P450's request for a bit about your history.

Sar,

How far are you willing to travel? For example are you willing to go to LA?

If so I might be able to recommend someone depending on your disorders and so forth.

Sar,

Did your physician not give you a referral for another pain specialist?

What type of pain or disorders do you have? You can likely find service in Los Angeles although you are what at least 400 miles from there.

I was hit by a drunk driver in 2003. I have severe neck pain. People that have been abusing pain meds have given a bad name to 'everyone'. Even if you are in severe pain, legitimately! I'm in Memphis. I need a compassionate Doctor that understands that I am genuinely in pain.

Llawen,

No the FDA and CDC have pushed the morphine equivalent limit nation wide and all physicians are adhering to it. First it was 200 mg. per day and it is far less now. Trust me this is nation wide and has caused mass panic due to liability. The physicians are all due to liability adhering to it and the overdose deaths are those of non patient prescription abuse.

Patients on my level are now being left to die. There are two others in Texas who now are wheel chair bound and suicidal. I am very careful about medical recommendations and have been known as a regulatory expert for years my history is in nursing leadership and clean up of federal regulatory messes in hospitals and LTC.

With that said what do you do if you are highly complex and progressed to Central Pain Syndrome. A normal physician will not treat you although under ACA allowances so that unprepared GP's writing opioids has been normal and shocking to me. One should have specialty experience to prescribe opioids especially those who have been for years on super high levels to keep them alive.

Further those like me do not have funds to travel you are to travel for you require expertise where it exists period. When my very experienced pain specialist of over 12 years died suddenly of renal carcinoma several of us were too complex, and I have been in that position now and progressed down hill rapidly once the markers were found for Central Pain Syndrome. In short the brain is now imprinted after suffering intractable pain for so many years and irreversibly damaged. I like many here have cervical and lumbar stenosis, systemic RSD, FM, a fusion, spondolethesis, ruptures and end stage DDD, IBS, and a multitude of disorders secondary to the industrial injury including CFS. Sadly it was found this last MRI that I too have severe arachnoiditis both cervical and lumbar. I was pushed off the diving board in a pool empty of water almost and this a year ago.

Court Orders on my behalf the list goes on. At one point I knew it was all about the COST of a drug, and I will require specialist care of the top level until I take my last breath. I am at a point now where I will during these times reach out to help hold our group together for you all require pain management and I am here to tell you this is not going to last but WE MUST LAST. We must hold out and encircle each other with personal support and strength. A belief that scientific methods will prevail and that physicians will be restored to doing what they study is what we have to seek in the near future.

In the meantime we must hold tight. Truly stay with your physician and be stoic during these hard times. If you see or hear a hater ignore him or her and reach out to those here who care for we are here on some level trust me.

To Everyone,

Do not feel alarmed if a family member has been the culprit and if you are told by one member there could be several involved. That is why you must be responsible at all times and carry those medications with you. We are at a crisis in America and regardless of the FDA and CDC not having legal authority they have by publishing overdose statistics related to prescribed opioids putting physicians at a liability which extends over medical malpractice.

In short I have seen entire families who were addicts doing this and other horrible things. Your pain contract is legal and binding and again that physician each night takes your life home with him or her and must hope that you are taking your medication properly, and further if something goes wrong he or she may be held accountable.

I would not hesitate to have a family member arrested if I found them even touching prescribed medications for my pain syndromes. As an ultra rapid metabolizer over the years my dosing is not as a normal pain patient, and the irony is someone stealing your medication may follow YOUR directions putting them in a box.

I can tell you why this would not happen or such an arrest occur and that is because I never do leave that medication anywhere. As stated on a previous post I believe with what is happening now we are losing innocent pain patients to suicide and just physicians who refuse to treat those who are complex or they feel will not accept lower quantities. On the other hand the FDA and CDC should inform the public of the truth.

The OVERDOSES and deaths caused are because of lay people who are not prescribed dying from prescription opioids.

Again if a 10 year old steals your medication, and is caught I believe both you and the 10 year old are convicted of felonies. That is because there are thousands now suffering and dying and until we as a group show we are now BETTER then street ADDICTS we are being convicted of their crimes remember this.

Keikee you realize that the young lady who told you may also have been involved. As sad as it seems young people are so eager to succumb to peer pressure that teenagers often take risks that they don't want to take. If I were you I'd carry all you are prescribed on you at all times. If you question anyone in any way that you might not feel safe with, I'd stay away from having overnight visits as well. Set your high standards and teach your family the way you are taught by our physician about these medications. You have earned the right to treatment, and we must all stand tall for those who also have earned the right but due to current political stigmas are lost in a maze of stigma, resentment, and abuse by a government that is supposed to represent freedom and justice for all!

By the way Chris usually posts intermittently depending on pain levels.

Peace out.

Worknsugusta,

I did speak to my Aunt, who thankfully doesn't suffer any chronic illness, pain etc...her neighbor sees the Dr on Hospital Rd & loves her to death. (see below) You'll need a referral from your pcp or specialist, whatever the case may be.

Mary Earwood, MD
300 W Hospital Rd
Fort Gordan, GA 30905
706-787-2720

Then there's this guy?

Michael H Rivner, MD
1447 Harper St
Augusta, GA
706-721-3231

You'll need a referral......records, etc. Good Luck!

Llawen, your dr can write you enough pain meds for 90 days without seeing you, although he may want to keep it at 60 days. It wouldn't hurt to ask him.

Sunshine, a P.S. to my own experience with stolen meds (which I could kick myself EVERY SINGLE time I think about it) is that I ended up telling my brother who's my niece's Dad what I'd learned about her stealing narcotics from me AND taking advantage of our mother's trust by using her house key to steal whatever anti anxiety meds and pain meds from her. I HAD to tell him. How could I not? I wanted to confront her myself but I could totally understand why my 16 year old niece begged me not too. Her older cousin could be over bearing and since I'd heard the crimes she'd committed I could see where she could be dangerous at some level. Anyway, I think she got the message I was on to her by locking my things in the locked trunk of my locked car with the keys in my husband's pocket. My brother is level headed and I knew he wouldn't go crazy, lose it, call her up and lecture her etc etc. As I said before, she was an adult, 23 years old at the time I learned of the past and the present plans to get her hands on good ol too trusting keikee's meds. Thank god my younger niece has a conscience. IF I'D HAVE CAUGHT HER OR SUSPECTED HER OF STEALING I WOULD'VE GONE THRU HER THINGS UNTIL I HAD MY MEDS BACK AND CALLED POLICE NO QUESTION IN MY MIND.

P.S. My secret to avoiding or curing a case of constipation is exactly that, My Secret. Meaning; No doctor or medical authority has published it or recommended to me specifically the actions I described as being 100% cure all for every single person happening upon the aforementioned post.
Dig that, y'all. Just putting that out there before SOMEONE tries to reem me a new one.

Llawin, It sounds that your history of constipation is now "history",right? It's very common for those of us with chronic, intractable pain to suffer constipation from opioid pain medicines. It disturbs me to hear of someone ending up on heavy duty chemical laxatives, enemas or worse case scenario;in hospital or dead from bowel perforation.
For anyone suffering or prone to constipation, here's my secret to keeping regular.
3-5 prunes washed down with plenty of water, EVERY day or night. If you find the prunes aren't helping(or they turn you off) & you're not having AT LEAST ONE BM per day, add Senokot S. The "S" in Senokot S is VERY important. Take the max dose the bottle recommends. Don't forget to drink water! Do this regularly! Senokot S contains a stool softener. Regular Senokot does not.
