Dear J,
First let me say Semper Fi and thank you for your service. There are many ways you can give your life for your country. Mine was to develop lupus within the first 6 months of enlistment. Though they put me on convalescent leave, I still insisted on going back to my unit at NAS Millington, TN where I continued to do my job as a drug and alcohol counselor. Yes, I had a lot of bad days so they moved my barracks room right next to my office. Being the only female in the office my Gunny was reluctant to let me go do I stayed in one more year with our base commander's help. I'm now a nurse and have
Learned a few things. As pain is one of my primary symptoms, it took many years before anyone told there was something that could be done for the chronic and debilitating pain. At the VA Houston they treated me like a guinea pig, both for my lupus because of its "designer disease" status and my pain. I have literally been on every drug you mentioned. It wasn't until I went to a civilian doctor that we found Norco works wonders. I could work again and function. Like you, I am also a paramedic. more I'm forced to volunteer less and have seen the results of the change of hydrocodone from schedule 3 to schedule 2 and I feel horrible for my pts. not to mention Ican't work anymore. Your comment was very well thought out and will, hopefully, , help some. However, in most places it is extremely difficult to find a pain specialist. And, I'm sorry to say the VA won't be much help but try anyway. There may be a drug combo that may work

I saw something in the court records about her being arrested and shut down because of Medicare issues. I don't know exactly what she did. She was very strict about prescribing meds so I don't think it was for writing fake prescriptions or anything. When I called the number it was disconnected. And I did contact the board. But she was practicing under another dr and I never found out the other Dr's name. I was told there was nothing I could do unless I found out the dr she was under. Believe me I tried. But even if I could get the records I'm scared that her getting arrested and shut down would look bad on me. Anyways, I have an appointment Thursday at a pain clinic. They already got my records from my primary and they state I was on methadone but that I've been off of it for a month now. They still called to make an appointment. So I'm hoping they just don't care that I was on it and want to help me. If they have me come in and pay $350 and then turn me away I'm going to go nuts. We shouldn't have to pay if they aren't going to help. I saw a neurologist today but he was no help. He prescribed me something to help me sleep but didn't even mention anything for pain. And I didn't ask because I didn't want to seem like a druggie. It was a waste because he had no clue why I am having migraines or why my whole body hurts all the time. Or why I'm dizzy all the time. He wants me to have a bunch of blood work done. I've been prescribed over 6 different meds now and not one is helping me sleep because they don't get rid of the pain. I almost took every pill in every bottle last night because I'm so sick of hurting and playing this stupid game with the doctors trying to get what I need. The DEA needs to leave us and the doctors alone. Catch the ones selling on the street but leave the dam doctors alone and let them treat our pain like we need it.

Ladies when you go to the drs try to be calm and not say a lot..I know we are so upset we explain a lot but that hurts us...keep it simple and listen. .I noticed less is more with these drs...just a quick observation..ridiculous.. not gonna solve everything but when we are passionate they think we are nuts...it's so unfair...so judgemental ...again just a little input...I'm so sorry for all of us..mostly being sick and all the suffering that comes with our diseases ...I love u my friends ...

MJC, drs don't close their practice because they have Medicare issues. Is they have been billing improperly and it is proven, it may be considered fraud. But, they can still see patients, as long as they don't bill Medicare for it. Patients are still entitled to their medical records, even if a dr is arrested. If you no one is there when you call or go to his office and there are no signs up, call your state medical board and tell them the situation. They may or may not be able to help. Call the hospital that the dr was associated with and ask them if the have any advice on obtaining your medical records. You may also want to do a search of your local newspapers website. Info regarding how patients can obtain medical records is some situations is often published in the local newpaper. The info would be considered an ad.

MJC Uve written exactly what I've been dealing with. Glad u have someone who can help u . Im afraid 2 that if I say something I won't get better. It's a disgrace . I hope u can find help. I've tried 2 post some different web sites . I no it might not help . But I wish I had some help I cry 2 & try 2 get cleaned up. I haven't been able 2 eat or do laundry. It's a sad state of affairs when we need the meds. We no work . Please try 2 stay strong If I could help more I would love 2. They wanted 2 keep me in the hospital 4 help on getting off tramadol . I should have stayed but again we are afraid of we ask 4 the help we won't get it. This is the worst . I no u said just how this happens. 2 get even an hr. Or 2 of sleep seems impossible. & when u do it's great comfort . I feel bad 4 my pets that show me love. Please can't they c how much it's hurting everyone in a way that's not fair. If I fall down again while just getting up now I'm afraid if I have 2 go back 2 the ER I will b labeled. I had 2 b 4 & they transferred me. 1 place in the ER they heard I had been going 2 pain management they wouldn't help. My doctor didn't no what he was doing & u never really no how the meds will hurt u or help . It wasn't right at all that I couldn't get help . When j did get some relief the nurses noticed I was different felt better & was like me again. I'm up & down now again. Not sure what 2 say 2 my doctor. . & u can't get into c anyone 2 make changes. . I feel ur pain 2. Xoxo. Withdrawing alone @ home is so hard. We miss our lives . I wonder sometimes if I should let her c some of things I've written on here. I wish I could so shed c how much damage it causes . But were not supposed 2 b afraid. Like were stuck

MCJ I hear you LOUD n CLEAR...if we could get what we actually need it makes the difference between living some n not living at all... couldnt even go w my family to a movie and been in bed for 3 days!!! And u cant tell the dr exactly what u need or how u feel...i use to be able to but my dr isnt practicing...if they could only live with us for a few days see the difference between low to no meds or what works for us and how it works how could anyone say no... it so UNFAIR I could scream for you....what is your perfect dosage??? Just curious what u need to survive? Unfortunately lately since my meds changed my crohns is worse than ever.. it was always bad but the Dr that took me over had no compassion n he changed me so fast he caused damage...damage that can't b reversed. ...he doesn't realize but he physically hurt me... they told him go slow but he didn't listen to them or me... arrogant...he told me to just get all my GI tract removed.... and wanted an end date...i cried and cried...so girl..i HEAR you LOUD and CLEAR

Today I broke down crying because I'm just sick of the pain. The sweats, being cold at the same time. The constant pain over my whole body. Constant headaches and dizziness. I'm so uncomfortable and in pain that I don't sleep for days. I lay on my couch all night in pain, can't get comfortable enough to sleep. My doctor keeps sending me different meds to try to help but some have such horrible side effects and risks. And all of my pain and not being able to sleep would go away if I could just get back on the roxies I was taking before. I feel completely useless. I can hardly get off the couch. I can't clean my house or do my clothes or fix myself something to eat. My husband tries so hard to help. He works 10+ hours a day and comes home and cleans and does the laundry and dishes and walks the dogs. He runs a hot bath for me and helps me brush my hair or wash my body because I don't have the energy to do it myself. And he holds me when I start crying at every little thing. He's an amazing husband and that just makes me feel worse because he shouldn't have to do so much. I feel like dying would be better than going through this. I have an appointment with a neurologist Monday and I am praying he will finally give me what I need to get through until I can get into the pain clinic. But so many places around here only want to do inj's. I refuse to do anymore inj's. They don't help. I'm so sick of doctors being scared to prescribe what is needed to get me back to a normal life free of pain for the most part. I have constant pain through my whole body that I need something for but if I'm going to work I need something stronger for my pain that happens after standing for too long. My husband needs his wife back and for me to be able to work again. Sure the methadone helped with some of the pain but it did nothing for the intense pain I get after doing any type of physical work.

I can't sweep my floor without intense pain. And I wish I could go into a clinic and tell them the complete truth but I've learned that once you tell them the truth they will not help you. There was a study done on these issues and it said one of the biggest issues is doctors not distinguishing between dependant and addicted. I was never addicted like some people. I didn't engage in unsafe behavior to achieve a high. It was never about feeling high. I took them as prescribed and for the first time in years I was able to function as a normal person again. But my doctor got shut down because of Medicare issues. I never even got a chance to get my records so I can't prove I ever went there. I need a pain clinic doctor to understand I am not now and never was an addict. I didn't sell my stuff even though I could have, but I needed my meds so selling would not have been good for me. And I never took more than I needed. Also Innever really got high from them. They just stopped my pain. I've tried so many other possible dangerous drugs now from my doctor but nothing helps and some had really scary side effects. The only side effect from the roxies was possible addiction. Anyone who takes a narcotic drug for more than a month can become dependant. That doesn't make them an addict. I've never been arrested or did anything wrong with my meds. But because I turned to methadone for pain now I'm doomed to always be in pain and be miserable and want to die. And why? Because there's a stigma that comes along with taking methadone. And that's not fair. That's the same thing as saying that a black man is a drug dealer. It's discrimination based on one thing instead of looking at the entire story and history and getting to know the patient. I shouldn't have to lie about taking the methadone in order to get the help I need. Sorry so long. Just really feeling hopeless and like just ending it.

I feel so numb sometimes . Can't feel my legs or arms lately. I'm glad I finally went 2 the hospital. I can now feel like my nerves are trying 2 rebuild inside me is the only way 2 explain it. It rushes around inside u. 2 bend & flex is a comfort but so hard. The X-ray's MRI say degenerated disks pinching the sciatic nerve. I've gone 2 c some of the same doctors my male friends have recommended & not gotten any help . That hurts. So y don't I get the same treatment . Is it me or them ? I've fought 4 people 4 yrs. 2 treat people with dignity. :~(. Then when I do I feel ok. It's amazing !! :~). Then it goes away. I m not sure how much more I can take. I miss everything & push myself 2 get things done but when u have 2 crawl around ur home on hands & knees 2 clean up things it ain't right.ive not really told my family all this. They've all been worried. So this hurts 2.

Minoguesque ... Wish I would have known or been better informed about this medicine that's treated my body like a toxin ... It's the worst I've had y is it available . Then they want ed 2 put me on cymbalta ins. Declined my body has been jolting me awake. 4 so long . Then u tell ur doctor u think it's making u worse. These treatments now all doctors want 2 treat u 4 fibromyalgia . Like it's the knew thing 2 do. For now. I don't want. Or need 2 b treated this way. It's not fibromyalgia it's simply called PAIN.& if u r still in PAIN u should b able 2 get help. It's day 7 coming up & no tramadol & can't c my doctor till next week . Just got home from the ER. They realy wanted 2 help. My anxiety had hit an all time high. Crying uncontrollably then sweating & hives hit me all at once I had been only taking 1 - 2 . 50 mg. cut back from only 3. These withdrawals are the worst I've ever felt. I'm afraid 2 b seen by some if these doctors. & this they gave me in the ER about a yr. Or 2 ago. The other cure all that they threw me on was Savella . Wow that ws bad & had me thinking all kinds of things ! I got off that trial run fast enough but then this. Gave me only enough Xanax till 2 day . Sunday. & a few pain pills so i didn't take any more tramadol. I can't believe I slipped up on this one . & then started reading & writing about this stuff. I thought I was well versed in the knowledge I had. Yrs . Of training & now I'm missing my family & not sure if I should have been sent home. I'm glad 2 b home cost is out off control 2 . It's us & the economy plus the ins. Co. & that's y I've been so bad it changes u ... Like it's taking over.! Please ...we need encouragement I try 2 help. & wish I could do more ... I feel broken!!!! &?y would a doctor want 2 put u on lexopro plus tramadol Is beyond me. The shakes the weekness lost time & no sleep anger u don't understand & more. So I get no sleep it a hour or2 & then I jolt awake. Don't give me trazadone 2 help sleep it's all like poison u can feel it running it's course like clock work. I got 2 the dentist & we talked I had a bad time last I was there & they noticed something was wrong . I had 2 time everything 2 just get there & a few other things done like the simple task of getting groceries . Now I've noticed more agitation & nervous ticks I've developed . I'm about afraid 2 even leave my home 2 go out. This isn't ME.the leg spasms cold rushing in around u up & down ur body. Y . Now my arms . & the itchy feeling all the time. What I wouldn't give 2 feel fine 4 a while. Like us all. Please someone help us help ourselves. We no how we feel. If I could touch a doctor. & let them feel this overwhelming feeling they'd b the first 2 right the wrong. Stop experimenting on us with these pharmaceuticals that are not tried & true. Thank u so much 4 letting me have a say. So sorry this was so long but I'm going 2 b talking with the FDA on Monday after talking 2 a nice man @ the FDA in the evening when I got home from the ER. He said they'd like more info on these drugs that r getting handed out 2 start on . I read an article about prominent doctors from a lot of countries who did a study... Said that the older drugs we no what they do. So let's get back 2 the basics. Of treating PAIN or ANXIETY or etc. With the medications we no . Bless u all wishing u all the best. Thanks again looks like I'm up again 4 who nos. I am thinking more clearly. & realized I've made some very bad dessions while in this. & that hurts even more.

Web md... It's not much but if I can help someone I'd love 2. I said b 4 sign the petition. Send mail 2 the American chronic pain association & let the FDA no what has been happening. If we all keep sending even though some would love 2 help... They've Been aware. So let's let em all no how truly it's hurting us r families & the economy 2 not b able 2 work enough or at all b cause of the simple fact that we r trying...but can't get the quality care it's not right at all.
