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 =)

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.

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!

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.

Eric Says:

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?

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.

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.

If you truly are a medical doctor (which I doubt very much) that post should cost you your license to practice.... any dr worth their grain of salt knows everyone responds to pain differently. You said you had back surgery. what was it for did you have a boil on your back & need to get it lanced that would be back surgery. No one can feel the pain others feel nor know how bad it actually is. Granted there are those that did as you describe. But who is to blame for that? How many drs told patients they gave meds to, "remember these will not take away all the pain it will just help & do not take more than prescribed." None of them in my decades of chronic pain ever told me that.. how many drs gave out another script when they came back 2 weeks early..... a lot I bet. But who is suffering now the true & honest chronic pain sufferer that did everything by the book didnt take more than scripted & didnt go back way early. Those that mri says they should be a blob on the floor because every disk in their back has major damage if they are not completely gone & the bones in the back fused together naturally. Mri that show stenosis so bad the spinal cord is being infringed upon. So you sit there on your high & mighty thrown fed up because you picked the correct name cause there are many honest chronic pain patient that are fed up with you mighty judgment casters that dont have a clue about the suffering those you chose to condemn go thru on a daily basis.. you better pray you never have to go thru it cause from the sound of your post you wont make it if you do.

You don’t know what your talking about. I have been on pain medication due to herniated disks that Doctors only made worse. I can hardly walk across the floor without help. The government will spend more on me now than if I had some pain control. I’m depressed and not a productive citizen. My Doctor just recently took me off my Soma (muscle relaxer) I had been taken for over 9 years , just stopped the medicine. No getting off over time, nothing. I begged him to help me. I fell asleep behind the wheel and hit 3 cars at a red light. Never even work up till I heard a child screaming. You think that’s right? Your sick. I don’t believe you either. Doctors are addicts because of access and no one will help me. Not even you.

Your an judgements lads I don’t care how superior you think you are what happened to compassion? You keep your attitude up and your little piece of paper hanging behind your desk and sooner or later your patients will get sick of your lack of compassion and find a more suitable Dr who has been around long enough to really care about his patients so go on and enjoy your life maybe become a drug counselor at rehab facility that sounds more like your speed anyway so piss off

Re: Maggie (# 4)

Amen Maggie!! First off, what is with that judgemental tone of yours? Has it not occured to you that human beings do hurt and they (myself included) are in absolute hell with their pain? You might be an MD, but your bedside manner is that of a cobra and you don't know JACK S*** about pain! and to look down your nose judging us is an insult to injury! It's a slap in the face! I went thru 20 years of weird symptoms before I found out that I've MS. I'm not in a wheelchair, but buddy I hurt w/leg muscles that contract when walking but they don't release. It's torture with spasticity and your legs/knees won't even bend and to try and bend them would make them break! Then the MRI says I've got lesions not only in my brain, but on spinal cord w/2 discs in the back that have degenerated causing even more pain! Sometimes I wish I had to guts to end my life bc of MS, but I don't. What's really going on w/a lot of drs is that the DEA decided to fight the war on drugs by taking them away from patients who desperately need them just to make their life bearable and not to feel high. I heard they are threatening doctors who do prescribe. It seems to me that if enough dr's were to make a stand, they would change their minds, but many dr's (like yourself) are cowards and turn tail not caring a bit about their patients! You took an oath to care and to treat your patients w/compassion for God's sake!! And the war on drugs is now worse than ever because some patients that will do anything not to hurt will go to the street because they don't have a choice!

Hey doctor fed up: your idiotic post is a little old. I wish someone would take it down. This is a site for p. m. patients to discuss their issues. You are definitely one of those issues. So glad again I don't have to deal with you. I wouldn't even allow you to take my blood pressure or temperature. I also hope no one takes their children to you.

Well, Ms. Fancy Pants, We don't all have that high of pain tolerance to be able to deal without narcotic medication on a regular basis, and yes, just because you go to a different Dr., even for a 3 or 4th opinion, you don't know each case base by base, you just posted the stupidest post I've ever seen. When you've had a quality of life with pain medicine that makes you want to live, and then after months of not having it, your life isn't even worth living! There is no shame in getting a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or even 6th opinion about what may help a chronic pain condition- you are a worthless, and unable to show compassion, Jeff Sessions Jr., I pray you receive the judgement back you just put upon us, In Jesus Name. Matthew ch7:1 "Judge not, for with the measure you judge, it shall be measured back unto you." God Bless you and have the Word of God not return void in your life.

You call yourself a doctor then you must know that everyone is different from there physical make up but your lack of compassion for the people that may depend on there pain medicine (not to get there fix)! You have the wrong attitude toward that but take it to bring us a much better quality of life

Just because you chose to suffer and not take the medicine you yourself needed after the carwrecks, so that's on you... you don't get a gold medal for that one. So, for you to say you don't prescribe them because you never took them, means you're just a selfish **********, that's all there is to it.

"Fed up" is scared to death to keep legitimate people who suffer from all types of diseases and cancer patients free from agony and all types of other pains! Fed up is just another provider who doesn’t keep their oath to help people in chronic pain because money comes first! I don’t know what this world is coming to anymore! But it’s a pity that dr's r scared to loose their licence because of a few guidelines! SHAME SHAME SHAME ON YOU!!!!
