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 =)

Some of us have to work & do physical activities to make a living. You took an oath. I also took an oath when I joined the service. I did what I had to do. That's why you still have the ability to speak your opinion, as do I. Glad I don't have to depend on your services!

Re: Maggie (# 4)

I have RSD in both hands from a Doctor performing the wrong surgeries. I also have MS. I was an athlete and never would take even an aspirin. HOW DARE YOU. I gave pain meds back 3 times the first year. Then I realized I will have to be on them in order to have ANY quality of life. YOU NEED ANOTHER PROFESSION. PROVIDERS LIKE YOU ARE WHY SO MANY ARE COMMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT LIVE WITH THE HIGH LEVEL OF PAIN. AND THEY GET A DOCTOR LIKE YOU.

I don't know you and doubt I would appreciate anything you have to say about much of anything until your ready to shut your mouth and open your mind.

I have had to hear ignorance on many levels over the years as a business owner and patient that requires narcotics to function.

I thank God every day I have great doctors a family that loves me and friends that stand by me and I them. How about you try walking in someone's else's shoes before you run that pie hole

It is wrong not to. I have been on high doses of narcotics 9 years and raised 2 perfect boys. I've tried every med known to man. I've had a nurse side for 5 years to help with my yoga. In the last year meds have been significantly lowered and I'm now bedridden. Nothing else helps, believe me I've spent fortunes on everything from Tommy copper to neurontin and lyrica. One doctor said I could order you a large dose of medication and you could skip through the next 9 years, Ok?? So let's do that. As is I had to sell all rental property because I can't take care of them. My nurse side now has to do laundry and shopping because I can't. I wake up screaming several times a night. No "doctor" you're wrong. I want my life back. There are going to be huge increases in street drug ods because people that don't use them are left with no choice and not knowing how to use them are dying because it's better to be dead than in pain constantly. I'm giving one more chance to a doctor to give me my life back, if he doesn't my fight is over. So until you have lived with pain only helped by large doses of narcotics don't say it's wrong. Opiates have been used thousands of years with less deaths than any of the man made pharmaceuticals you're pushing.

I'm really happy that you are managing your pain so well. But you really don't reveal what kind of pain your dealing with. I am an RN and your attitude regarding anyone who needs more than Tylenol is pathetic. Not everyone needing pain control is a drug seeking, fat, lazy, undisciplined, worthless peice of crap,out to ruin your practise. All I want to say is I hope one of these days when you need pain relief you meet YOU. That is what you deserve.

The original post is an embodiment of the problem with so many doctors in today's medical system. They're not willing to listen to their patient's stories, let alone give them a remote chance of obtaining adequate relief. They tend to take a "once you've heard one story you've heard them all approach", forgetting that no two patients are created equally - especially those facing chronic pain. The lack of compassion in this profession is just mind bottling and a disservice to humanity. However I can see that at least some part of it comes from a place of fear, perhaps due to being judged/scrutinized by more experienced colleagues or the DEA. Well my opinion is if you can't handle the pressure of what being a doctor entails, maybe it's not the right field for you? I hope none of us ever have to see the day where we enter the office of someone of the likes of this person.

It amazes me and angers me when the high and ohhhh so mighty can walk thru their lives in debilitating..(no that would " de able" your functionality) hmm-disability..(no,same thing- affects what "your normal" might be. I'm having trouble finding the right word to describe your physical problems, including how pain affects you, being... not me, or anyone else, I'd suppose.

Don't know your eye color (a genetic "tickle" going on that I'm sure you are familiar with. Mental state is unknown, as is med history, surgeries, childhood uh -stuff. And the cause for your admirable and stoic stance on, not only your pain and tolerance level (brown eyes? sorry) but your abilities of sympathy,empathy (actual or created). Of caring. And having a cognitive awareness of the vast differences among people about everything, including health issues.

I have a chronic pain issue,along with acute episodes, that remind me of having fillings done as a child without novocain. Or a bad toothache where the tooth isn't broken and the gasses cannot be released.(Tooth structure does not expand in a way that helps) I don't want addictive meds- so I'm looking for an alternative. But if I did take narcotic meds, I know that I need that level of relief, more so than you would. If I need to, I will- and it crazes me to know that truly needful people are pre judged by people like you. I have a strong sense that you are afraid that you are unable to assess well enough to handle the responsibility of appropriate pain management. Fearful.

Who are you talking to? I hate Pain medicine as well, and yet am stressed because I took a 600mg Ibuprofen the other night without enough water and could die from a perforated stomach ulcer. I'd ask why you posted here in the Ibuprofen section instead in one of the Opioid forums, however I don't think I'd want you as my doctor? Even my recent Colonoscopy had a bunch of different pain medicines like Fentanyl that I have never even seen. Perhaps you should just retire Doc?
