This is where it shows that the vast majority of chronic pain patients are having their pain adequately managed. If millions of chronic pain patients that can't find pain management were to write their state and federal legislators at the same time, there would be an impact. No one can ignore millions of people when they are saying and demanding the same thing. The stricter laws, guidelines and recommendations that are in force now did not happen over night or suddenly.

I am not saying that there aren't people that are not having their pain managed. I'm saying that compared to those that are having their pain managed adequately, those not having their pain managed adequately are in the minority. When hydrocodone combination meds were reclassified from Schedule III to a Schedule II a lot of people said that patients were no longer able to get them, this was not fact. The fact was that because many dr choose to not prescribe Schedule II meds, if somoene wanted this med, they had to go to a pain management dr.

lori, your currrent dr is correct, no dr is going to prescribe you narcotics after you were dismissed by another dr. When someone needs pain meds to function, keeping their appointments and going by the rules should be top priority. If you had an appointment and you also scheduled a trip that would prevent you from being at that appointment, you should have called your dr and rescheduled your appointment as soon as you knew you would be out of town. If you take your meds as prescribed, pill counts should not be a problem. When a patient is discharged, the reasons are in their medical records and any new dr is going to get a copy of your medical records from your previous dr and they will know that you were discharged and the details. Not dealing with a dr in Carolina's Healthcare System does not mean that a new dr won't get a copy of your medical records. It sounds like the reasons you were dismissed may have been more than what you have said here. FInding a dr that will accept cash only patients is difficult and pain management drs are expensive, especially the first visit.

Hi Lori, Unfortunately it doesn't matter who your new dr is affiliated with, they WILL send for your records from the dr discharged you so there IS no getting around the fact any dr you see for help with your pain will know your previous dr discharged you & why. I don't feel completely clear on the reason for the discharge. Was the appt for the pill count scheduled in advance & you didn't show or did they call you, tell you to come in and bring the pills for a count out of the blue? If it was the latter you should've explained you're out of town. Maybe they would've let you send a picture of yourself with your pills. If you are scheduled to come in and skipped the appt that's a different story. It's possible to convince a dr you meant no harm & weren't trying to hide anything with the pill count thing but those guys are very skeptical right now and many don't want to prescribe opioids at all anyway. The new dr who told you no one will prescribe narcotics for you is a pain specialist?

Write your lawmakers and write them often, 47 million chronic pain patients pulls a lot of weight but only if we let ourselves be heard.


Another quote from another 'pain' site...

For Starters,

I urge everyone, or have a family member do so if you are too ill, BOMBARD your local officials, your state's representatives and senators, the American Medical Association, your state pharmacy board, the DEA, with phone calls, letters, emails of protest. Every day. Not just once but every single day. Be the pebble in their shoe. Spread what is happening on social media sites. Patients should make videos of their situation (easy to do if you have a smartphone) and upload them to YouTube. Contact your local newspapers, TV news stations, CNN. Make everyone aware of what the FDA is doing, show yet another example of our federal government FAR overreaching their duties, how they are now discriminating against pain patients, using a MINORITY of the population doing the abusing to gain even greater control over our liberties. It is NOT the faux threat of socialism the GOP tries to keep Americans afraid of that is the problem. That is merely a red herring so that you do not focus instead on the increasing control our elected officials are giving themselves over ALL Americans.

I am from RI. I know "someone" responded they might be able to help on an older post but I lost the post. It was an older post, but the following still applies... (if that person reads this, please tell us how you can help?) this still applies. for possible help for finding doctors in RI is old, but how do we get in touch with you if you "can" help? My doctor (PCP) left me high and dry when went to get my regular script. I have multiple issues, also same as most of us. But, he just "left" and I had to survive on two oxycodone pills for 4 days. He has no other physician to cover. We need REAL help. I attribute a lot of this to celebrities because things really went overboard following the incidents of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston OD's.

I believe that is irresponsible to just leave your patient when plans were already made. You are NOT supposed to just "stop" taking an opiate. It is dangerous. I have too many other issues with this person and as others have stated, there is a "panic" going on. I have severe Fibromyalgia, my back is a mess.

I am not looking for just pain meds, but I can't rock myself and cry when it gets bad. I had a colonoscopy in 2012 and walked into the hospital. Then I come home and start to "collapse". No physician will correlate the colonoscopy with the severe abdominal pain, back pain, etc...

So, what do people who need meds but do not have cancer do? I have all the sympathy in the world for people in such positions. As said previously you cannot measure pain. However, RI definitely needs a coordinated "Pain Management Center". I cry too much I lost a cousin to cancer and she was on a pump. I little about it. She died, unfortunately and sorely missed. Another death to relative with the worst type of MS. So, do we need to be on the verge of death to find any relief? I am so responsible with my opiates and ALL my meds. I suffer because they do not last over 4 hours and never have. So sleep is rather impossible.

I would also lie the best pain management I can get? A "combined approach" But where?

We are not drug abusers. We are people being ousted. I can no longer play with my grandkids or do much at all. This is the Hippocratic Oath? "First, do no harm..."

If you research you will find more people die from over use of Tylenol, which ruins your liver. Go and research it. Yet, there it is right on the shelves of every pharmacy.

Once again, if anyone who can help people in RI find a decent, compassionate doctor, God Bless you..., please respond.
I guess I've said my piece... thanks and I hope everyone gets help. (my PC is acting up, so if there are misspells, etc., I apologize & I am curious as to "why" the board is said to be "private" of sorts, but why is it NOT "https"?

{Editor's note: Regarding the question of https, this site does support it, and when a message is submitted it is sent over https. Viewing pages is still done over regular http.}

Keikee, it's nice to be acknowledged. Thank you. I appreciate your input, as well as others, especially when positive, informative, even 'rolling in the muck.' Misery loves company, right? I am working on ignoring ignorant behavior (I'm being kind here), and will refer to your 'chat' for reinforcement. I need all the input, cheer leading, I can get. Thanks to you also Chris. You both made my day.

Okay, on phone for two days to make the DEA call. No luck. They want everything done online, I'm not doing it that way. It'll end up in trash.
What I am doing, and this will be well worth it to a few of us-hopefully more than a few, is finding the website/phone whatever it was of the nurse I mentioned, then following her instructions.
I will post and share the outcome with you here. I need more time to get deep into this dinosaur of a computer, please bear with me.
I Will find it!

I often asked myself that same question Chris. Then I decided, for me anyway, that I didn't want to waste what precious air and minimal energy I had on posing such a question to someone who obviously is in the wrong chat group. Thanks!

BL-idk if you really DO understand chronic/intractable pain........your take on the situation comes from complete lack of it. I truly believe you have heard this many times already, which shows me you are the same as the CDC & others.....I just cannot figure why you are such a staple here on this board?
Chris

I wish I was in the group of people whose pain is being managed properly by a doctor. Everyone's entitled to an opinion. I can respect that. I'm of the opinion FAR TOO many are suffering needlessly due to all the changes to the guidelines etc. I don't think I need to spell it all out here as people affected are unfortunately aware. I'm not EVEN talking about those whose dr's have dropped them because of non-compliance

Chris, the comments from those not agreeing with the CDC Guidelines were few compared to comments from those that agreed with them and/or wanted them even stricter. Online petitions never receive any where near the number of signatures needed. Yes, there are some people that can't find a dr to manage their pain, but the vast majority of chronic pain patients are having their pain managed. If the vast majority of chronic pain patients were not receiving adequate pain management, there would have been many, many more comments against the guidelines. For the vast majority of chronic pain patients that keep their meds at a low dose and go by the rules their drs have and don't get dismissed, they don't have problems having their pain managed.

madashell, no it's not smart. There will not be millions of people making these phone calls. And for the few that might make them, they need to be prepared to talk intelligently and calmly. They also need to be prepared to be told that someone will call them back or they will have to leave a voice mail message. If nuisance calls are made over and over, the chances are good that you will receive a letter or a phone call from your phone company telling you that if you continue to make these calls that your phone service will be disconnected. The only thing that making phone calls like the ones you're taking about will accomplish is to make those that take opiates look childish and unable to control themselves.

Keikee it's my pleasure. We need to support each other, I for one am a bit more energized knowing someone read my post and took the time to thank me. It's important that we acknowledge each other, chronic pain is so horrifyingly lonely.

I read something, of course I can't find it now-go figure, written by a very informed sympathetic nurse. I want to pass this on, perhaps it's the beginning of our 'movement'.

She stated: All the letter writing from pain patients to DEA ends up in trash. But, if everyone one of us called them once each per day, they have to sit up and take notice. Cannot throw a phone call in the trash! Can you imagine what that would do to their phone system? I don't have the numbers, but when I find them, I'll post 'em. In the meantime, look them up and call the DEA once every day and state your opinion. Tell them how their (ahem) decision affects you. If we can post here, we sure as heck can make a single simple call. No, I haven't done it yet. Cluck, cluck. I was afraid of breaking down, crying, yelling and being immature, threatening them. Smart huh? I will be making that call today, 3/30/2016 Pacific time. Should anyone access the phone numbers, share them with us. Should anyone actually make the call let us know how it went and more importantly how you feel. Looking forward to Millions making these calls and the results! Millions of people can't be wrong!

I found very few Warnings at the suggested website regarding warnings about opioids. Whatever the risks, I'll take them. Yeah, I self medicate with my Drs. help and direction. Better to be a semi functioning human being than a bed ridden vegetable. As a freedom-loving, right-to-my-own-decision-making, red-blooded american, I CHOOSE to take opioids rather live in pain. Side effects? The side effects of the opioids are far outweighed by the benefits. This has been proven time and again, millions cannot be wrong.

I want to know who, besides the alphabet agencies, are these naysayers, do-gooders, know-whats-best for me people that are trying (and succeeding) to ruin my life? Why have we given up our rights to 'heal thyself physician?" By telling me whats BEST for me? How do they know what's best for me? Another perfect example of big brother telling me what's good for me because they know better. Is this America or ? They can't walk in my shoes let alone put them on (it aint fun being me so don't try). What, how, when and who gave anyone the right to tell me what to ingest? How about alcohol? How many are dying from that? Liver failure, etc... You don't see them shutting down that big business do you? Why Not? Alcohol is by far the worst demon of all and it's legal. There has to be so much more than meets the eye here... it's up to us to figure it out, over come and get on with what lives we have left. Come on people, you want to die writhing in pain? Lights out for me before I do that. I Choose to. Big bucks, big brothers will tell us how to live, when and where and for how long. I'd rather cease to exist than barely exist. To me the saddest part of all this besides the suicides, pain and suffering: We are rolling over and letting them dictate to us How we live.
