I have 13 degenerative disabilities in my back, neck and head and after struggling and being bedridden for ten years I found a provider that would prescribe four 30mg oxycodone a day. I am in shock that you got five 30mg oxycodone plus two 15mg morphines a day. I'm in Washington State and have fought for my life to get a therapeutic dose just to have it taken away again, making me bedridden. I'm so sick of this torture by the government and CDC.

My pharmacist talked a bit about that but I cannot get access to care. I have been fighting with my insurance for their failure to provide me with a doctor that is in their network. This is a joke!!! Why am I paying for insurance that contracts with providers that will not see me?

You should consider getting Ketamine treatment for your pain. It's helped me a great deal with both pain and mental health.

Heyyoo (# 20) --

I was forced to go to five pain clinics this year and they are so discriminatory and do not do their research. They are inconsistent and they each said something different. I have all their info documented. Something has to break. And some people do need these meds to SURVIVE. I believe being forced to be bedridden for over five years when you have a child is unethical and not life. I want to live and work to support my son and put him through college. Unfortunately, I have to take opiates. I tried everything to avoid taking any pill only to find in the end that the opiates were last resort. I have already done and tried everything to the point of bankruptcy and disability separated from my state job. Now with the CDC and their false reports, I'm being forced to repeat the process? No!!! Been there, done that. The CDC and my Governor are killing me. I just want to go back to work and I need my pain med at a therapeutic dose. I would never take the pain meds and rot on disability unless I was forced to which I have been and I am going to put a stop to it. I have already experienced hell. I cannot do it again! I cannot afford to live in disability. I do not qualify to rent an apartment because I do not make three times the rent. I do not qualify for a car loan. I just want to go back to work. I can make bank. I was well on my way before until 2005 due to a car wreck. The injury sustained from the car wreck was exacerbated by 1000 times from an injury I sustained bowling in April of 2007. Still, undiagnosed. Ten years and not one medical provider can give me a diagnosis. I have not picked up a bowling ball since 2007 nor have I worked or played a sport. I took my son on a walk through our neighborhood (stuck living at my mom's for 5 years) and we saw a basketball under a hoop. I tried to make the ball into the hoop. I couldn't even throw the ball to the net. I am weak and have done physical therapy at four different offices about 8 visits each. They all re-injured me while on pain meds. Now, this last pain clinic I went to wants me to do physical therapy for the 5th time WITHOUT pain meds when I couldn't do it on a high dose of pain meds. This is all OUTRAGEOUS to me. And EVERYONE thinks the guidelines are LAWS when they are not. If 1 doctor properly documents my chronic acute pain their butt is covered. I want to go back to school (medical school) and I would take over pain patients and weed out the abusers.

Let me clear couple things up for you guys. First, a patient's rights are outlined in the health insurance portability and accountability act (HIPAA.) It very much is the DEA who regulates all medications physicians and such prescribe. There must be validating medical records that warrant high narcotic regimens. In almost all cases where a medical professional/practice declines to accept/file insurance taking only cash for payment of services, there will be an abundance of over prescribing of narcotics and other addictive meds. Not accepting medical insurance closes one of the avenues used to monitor and regulate practices of those doctors.
Bottom line, they make money hand over fist while the patient is putting their care and well being at risk.
As a healthcare provider myself, I would avoid these doctors like the plague. Your healthcare is secondary to their profit demands.

When a doctor, by his own choice, is closing his office; or has decided to discontinue pain management for a patient..it is required in most states that if patient in this circumstance has been receiving treatment/medications for longer than 12 months that said patient shall be given 90 day supply of medicines. This allows patient time to seek new doctor. This would not be the case where doctor being forced to discontinue care and DEA involved.
Something to bring to the attention of your doctor before care/medicines stop.

Never go to Tennessee valley pain consultants as they only do procedures. Inj's. are the leading causes of a very rare disease called Arachnoiditis. It is a debilitating, horrific disease and it is non-curable. Keep away from Dr. John Roberts.

Ketamine infusions help those with RSD, I know a few but they still take some sort of pain medication. Ketamine will not stop opiate withdrawal. What is happening to Legitimate Pain patients is extremely cruel. The WHO says you have a right to pain relief. So being put in immediate withdraw by a Dr cold turkey with no titration what so ever should be a legal matter. Even being titrated isn't going to help your pain. Opioid Withdraw for many people with multiple Health conditions can be dangerous to your health, even fatal for some. Is this acceptable Healthcare? I think not. Doctors take an oath to do no harm but what's going on in pain community is harm! Legal suits from Patient to doctor need to start happening. The CDC guidelines were supposed to be just that , guidelines but politicians are making laws out of them in many states. Addiction Dr Andrew Kolondny is to blame for your lack of access to Proper, timely pain care. Kolondny is a huge stakeholder with the chain Phoenix House rehab centers. They are fighting hard for gov grants and to make big $$$$$ for the addiction Industry. Once it was pharma looking to make billions and now it's addiction industry. Now days, good luck even finding a Dr to prescribe you your quality of life medications. The rise in suicides in the pain Community now is getting worse. The media and the government are lying to everyone when they say opioid deaths have risen. They're combining the illicit drug deaths in with prescription drugs to make the numbers to sound Outrageous.

The fact is Rx deaths have severely declined, while black market deaths are superseding the past prescription death numbers by far. And the truth is, there never was an Opioid epidemic at ALL! Propaganda is what we all saw. Politicians using the subject for self personal gain. The Corruption is deep in government. The CDC became corrupt and they're buddies with this Kolondny character who got his friends in the FDA too. So you see, it's all about the money why so many pain patients are Suffering today. The health insurance industry is jumping on board with this too. Until people start raising holy hell about the inhumane care they're getting, pain care is disappearing. It's looking like genocide. I wish all Good luck with finding the life saving pain care you need and once had. Until people start fighting back it's not going to ease up. Note: The national pain Strategy bill was passed in 2011 but has never been implemented. Patients need this bill implemented. I also suggest you search in change dot com for petitions. There's many but they need many signatures. There's plenty to do to help the situation. Not sure if anyone is aware but the addiction community has had meetings with the president at the White House but... To this day, no pain organizations have been to tell the other side of the story. That, I don't understand. It needs doing ASAP.

Have you tried getting a appointment with Tennessee Valley Pain. I also saw on this thread someone recommend Phoenix Emergency Care. If you look on their website it states they treat people for pain. Have you every tried Ketamine infusion treatments for pain?

I relocated to Huntsville AL from Oregon. I have all my records and prescription monitoring record. My records are stellar. Still Oregon doctors said seven days was plenty of time to get into a pain clinic - not true. Alabama drs say I should just wait. They all know my seven days are over on Saturday and I am heading for Fentanyl withdrawals. Is there an ER near Huntsville that will care? No other MD does... please.

If do you only want drugs then there is the place to go. Whatever you do, don't have steroid or epidural steroid injection's. That is what caused me to have this rare disease called arachnoiditis. As soon as Dr. Roberts learned that I had the disease, they dropped me leaving me without a doctor.

Alabama and Tennessee have become the most recent WORST states to live with Chronic pain! There's very few, if any doctors willing to treat pain properly there anymore. BTW, Suboxone is not a pain medication, it is an addiction medicine. It was specifically designed for addiction. If you EVER accept that drug you will never be able to obtain proper pain medication again and you will be labeled an addict on your medical records. Suboxone is a bad drug for pain because you can't take/get any breakthrough medication, it will block it. Suboxone maybe OK if you don't have Real moderate to severe pain. It's to keep people from withdraw only. So until AL & TN pain Patients stand up and FIGHT for your Rights to have proper care, your going to be suffering and probably traveling a hundred miles or more. How can you do that monthly?? Honestly? So NOW, The suicide rate has increased among pain patients. This is discrimination. CDC guidelines are not proper care. Individualized care is the correct way to treat pain. One size doesn't fit all. Think of filing legal cases and filing ADA complaints combined. Google what 2 Maine Patients are doing! They are suing their state!! They already have attorneys. These 2 men are being cut down dosing and it's affected their ability to work. Feed their families, pay their mortgages. Discrimination!!! Citizens Really need to organize and begin raising HELL. Also, Create groups and start organizing your fight! This is a real problem. These Bible belt states are supposed to be Pro Life?? So making people suffer by not treating legitimate pain is pro life? Zero quality of Life! Sounds like Sin to me! Hippocrates more like it. FIGHT BACK! Don't even think that Emailing your congressman will help, it does Zero! You get form letters that are worthless! Only legal cases, hitting them in they're pocket books gets REAL action. God bless American pain patients. You've become collateral damage in the war against drugs!!

Most doctors now will only give pain medicine to people who have cancer only because of the fact that so many people are drug seeking bouncing from one doctor office to others and demanding specific pain medicine. I used to live in North Carolina and they have a system that let's every pharmacy know that you go to a specific pain doctor and if you try and fill a prescription from a different doctor or hospital it would get denied by the pharmacy. Pennsylvania hasn't caught up to that just yet but soon it's gonna be in every state in the country because of people abusing the system so much.
