No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to you people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people like you all the time who go from practice to practice with your stories trying to get narcotics. You need to go to drug rehab, find a psychiatrist, do physical therapy, lose weight, and get a job!! This is no way to live and we do not want to jeopardize our licenses feeding into your addiction. I have personally been in three serious car accidents (none were my fault) and have had back surgeries, injections, PT etc. but have NEVER taken controlled substances except for two days after surgery. I have chronic back pain but I exercise and take care of myself and go on with my life!! Evidence-based practice tells us that narcotics are no better and pain control than ibuprofen or tylenol long-term. You are all addicts so you need to deal with your addiction. Stop wasting your time with your stories and antics in attempts to get us to write for controlled substances because we are onto you =)

Oh honey, you need a psychiatrist.
Not to mention it’s illegal to diagnose patients you have never met.
Get a grip. Sorry your boner pills stopped working.
But yeah, retire.

I can’t decide if you’re simply ignorant, angry and sanctimonious, or if you’re a Troll, trying to get kicks out of antagonizing people with your stunning personality disorder. Doesn’t really matter. Go away.

Wait a minute....Diagnosis... Charcot-Marie Tooth x1. Age 52. OMIM describes my lot as "severe disability."

Started at 19 with Social Security Disability.

Took Quinine pills for serious cramping as a teen, with an increasing gait problem and periodic sprained ankles, as well as levator ani syndrome to this day.

I endured tibialis posterior tendon transfers L @ 15 and R @ 16. This gave me dorsiflexion I had not previously had, making university at BYU-Hawaii possible.

Started smoking cannabis at 15, and my grades went from D-F to A-B, where they stayed all the way through grad school in a foreign country, The Netherlands, at Emerson's campus there, where I was co-valedictorian, and not because have CMT/HMSN.

While I gained weight over the course of years, ending at 212, I took up yoga, lost 60 pounds.

But none of this took the pain, the real pain away. So in 1998 we started up the ladder with tricyclic antidepressants and Tylenol (allergic to ibuprofen.) then we went to hydrocodone/apap, and then I moved to a pain specialist, one in Reno, one in Amsterdam, and the current one in Beverly Hills.

I am and have been under the care of a psychiatrist, a psychologist, a family practitioner, an internal medicine specialist, and an orthopedic surgeon since I was 3. I have the entire file if you'd like to see it, which includes a DNA analysis showing the particular mutation in the GJB1 portion of the x chromosome where a single pair of switched amino acids are responsible for the whole thing.

Now to fight the pain, I use a 100 uG/hour Fentanyl patch along with supplementary hydromorphone.

And that keeps me able to continue the yoga/pilates/PT and to be out in the world instead of in a cool dark room with the TV off. I can ride an Electric bike, for example.

Care to offer another path?

What an ignorant and quite frankly pathetic waste of a Medical Doctor. You are the most unprofessional and hateful person I’ve seen speak about people who are in real need of opiate therapy. And I thought our President was an a**hole!! Until now.

Ive read the replies and as a frequent, long standing recipient of medical and health care I will agree with critics of what has filtered down from truly great advances in scientific medicine to street level. But, pain, regardless of the circumstances, usually amounts to the fact that no matter whose fault it was, you crossed the river and and "the die is cast".
That leaves us with the problem. Abandoning a sizeable segment of society should be out of question. We're left only with commentary of what a screwed up society we are members of. All I would hope for is that, those who bear the brunt of bodily pain do not suffer too much before the end, and that our earthly species is capable of improvement mentally. Better post dated solutions, I have not!

WOW! Ever heard of bedside manner? You say you have back pain on a daily basis? Well, I have had chronic back pain since I was 19 and I also did not take any pain meds,until...a couple of years ago. I started having awful back pain that affected my daily activity. Asked my doctor if she would consider giving me an RX for something for pain . I tried everything OTC without relief. I also took Mobic and my creatin began to elevate. So I was told to stop the Mobic and all NSAIDS. She said if I would do OR she might consider it. No X-Ray done. I finished 6weeks of PT with no relief. She said due to having osteoarthritis I would probably always have back pain. So she gave me RX of Vicodin 5mgs. My back pain continued to get worse I ask for the dosage to be increased but she wouldn't because of the laws. So I stayed on the Vicodin 5mgs once a day, which was a joke in itself. I was greatful for the 4hours of relief but not the pain that continued after it wore off. I had an episode of trying to get out of the bed and when I finally did I managed to move. I also had episodes of what felt like lightening bolts in my hip that stopped me in my tracts. I told this to her and told her that I had done the PT exercises but I wasn't able to do some of them that was easy before. She wanted me to return to PT I never received a call to schedule a time. I called her office and left a message for the nurse. Still no call. So I got frustrated and didn't check on it anymore. I went back again and I finally got X-Rays. Got the results she said I needed an MRI and that I'd probably be sent to a spine center. IT TOOK 3WEEKS TO GET SCHEDULED FOR THE MRI. Vicodin didn't help so I didn't take it the last month before surgery.(Doesn't sound like an addict to me). I had MRI on Friday and on Sunday I couldn't move and I still don't know how I got off the bed. I tried to crawl and was unable to.So I dragged myself with my arms. I had called my son he was there by the time I got to the bathroom. I couldn't pull myself up no matter what I tried.He called the ambulance. A neurosurgeon was consulted.I had a lumbar fusion and C-spine fusion due to myeloma, in the same hospital stay. I was there for eight days. I was given pain meds of course. Before the surgery, even Dilauded did nothing for the "electric current" pain I had. I now do not take pain meds. But this bout of pain cut labor pain a couple of notches on the scale. I encourage you to not only hear your patients but listen to them. Maybe your practice lures those types of people. I wouldnt be a patient of yours to treat ANY illness. If you can't get over all this, maybe you can get a job at Wal-Mart. You certainly couldn't be a greeter due to your attitude.
