GRANDMA PAT Says:


I have been in pain management for years, lost my doctor along with other patients, and primary won't fill or says she can't and messes up my progress to get in new pain management in time. Now I'm losing Soma, was 3 times a day, now I have 7 tabs left. Was on 45 mg of morphine 3 times, oxycodone 15s and xanax 5 mg 3 times a day. Which she said she can not write for. Why, if she knew or thought this pain clinic was prescribing more than standard, did she never say a word until i had to go to her in desperation for this? Your primary that has to refer you and get info to get into a new pain clinic, I have very serious health issues no one is dealing with, I feel alone and suicidal. I even told my doctor and the old pain clinic staff that left, and not a bit of help, yet they know i have a history of heart failure, bleeds in brain from pain issues. No one cares, our country is falling apart and i asked again today for something for bp and high pulse, got nothing for it but a nurse, they did not send in the info two times that could have had me in pain management by now, and in having the colostomy i had to postpone since I wont do it with out pain mgmt on board.

Today they cut me back more 1 soma for a few days then no more, oxycodone 10mg 3 times to be cut on mon again and morphine cut from 45 3 x to 3o 2 times. All i can do is cry and sleep then cry more then no food, not drinking, feel horrible, and have lost desire to live and fight. These doctors put all on others and not one seems to care or no what to do with all of us real pain patients. I just want to die at this point for i am so tired of suffering and its only going to get worse. I feel so bad for all of the posts i have seen and know im not alone. All i see is the same four walls every day, go no where and before i felt i had some reason to fight and live to fight cancer and even cancer doc can not help get you in pain mang. They said today it will take at least 8 weeks to get in and ill be dead then or out of meds in a stroke etc. That is my biggest fear. Have had 3 bleeds in brain from this and pain is no joke.

The nurse said today we all are paying for those that dr shop and are addicted and i said i thought even addiction is a matter that needs treatment. They counted my tabs. I take drugs panels, did nothing wrong and most of my pain is caused from docs that did botched surgeries and cancer and injury from accident. I dont no what we all can do or if there is hope but it does not do good to ask on this site if someone knows where to get meds. Its not just docs its insurances companies and pharmacies. It's all getting way too much and hard for even a well person to figure out. I am ready to go home to my maker and wish he would take me soon. I am so tired of the lack of proper dr care in our country and its so sad i feel and pray for you all i want to know who is going to be responsible when i die or end up in a stroke due to this. Xanax withdrawals will be the worst too for i had them before for you can not sleep to escape the torture and they only get worse with time unlike opiates most docs dont seem to know this. I guess i have heart rate of 139 now and bp 200 over 133.

Oh my...THE CAPS....who is the one helplessly enraged? You would not of responded the way you did without reading the post. You aren't on here just to help people, you love to feed your ego "lots of people have thanked me"..... really? So glad your getting your fix. Considering your not reading my posts.. you seem awfully angry. If you re-read my post, you'd understand why I hate kratom being called a "drug" whether it meets the standard definition of a drug or not, that word seems to trigger a negative reaction.

CHRIS: The people who "have no business taking opioids" are usually taking illicit drugs, which wouldn't affect whether or not you get prescriptions. And the ones who are taking opioid PRESCRIPTIONS likely got them from a doctor. So your comment is a bit confusing.

And it is MOST DEFINITELY the "doctors' fault", at least in part. In the 80s, 90s, and early 2000's, doctors were handing out opioids like candy. Well now there is a huge backlash to that, and these same doctors are cutting everyone off. And who are the ones who will suffer? The legit pain patients like yourself. But saying that doctors bear absolutely no responsibility in this mess is inaccurate. If they had been prescribing opioids responsibly in the first place, we may not be in this opioid crisis now.

Wow I feel so bad for you and I understand, going thru the same thing myself, but not as serious as you. I would go to the hospital and tell them you're suicidal and they will keep you for 72 hours and hopefully get you the help you need, but please don't take your own life. There is help out there. I know it's hard and you're getting the run around big time and that sucks, but don't kill yourself. Please let me know what's going on. I care. God bless you.

KKH.. I actually agree with you. The pharmaceutical industry lied to dr.s saying that oxycontin this wonderful new long lasting pain medication was not addictive, and would be better, safer for patients. And YES, the Dr's bear responsibility too! They had to of noticed that their patients were asking for more and higher dosages, yet they continued to prescribe more and more opioids. They made more money as their patients kept coming back. Now to keep their licences, they are quickly using any excuse to cut those patients off, and get them out of their practice. My pain dr of 3 years informed all his patients he was closing his practice, and gave everyone 2 post dated scripts, and told we'd get a letter with a referral to another dr, and he'd send our records over. None of that happened...he just took off out of state, without another word.. I luckily found another dr, who was aware of the situation with my previous dr. And was willing to take my prescription records from my pharmacy. But my new dr was so ANGRY! he said we were all over prescribed, and that Dr should be in orison for what he did to us. Then he cut most all of us by half our meds. It was a rough period of adjustment....but I'm grateful now. I am much more active with less days of sleeping or lying on the couch. But Dr.s who see the patients every single month have to know there was a problem. Funny how there have been no massive legal suits against the drug pushers....or pharmaceutical companies for lying about the addiction potential. I have read documents online, that prove they lied. All this happens, and true, honest pain patients are denied the help they need. Truly sucks.

Wow I feel so bad for you. That's so so terrible. I would guess you have been to all kinds of doctors (specialists), heart doctors, cancer specialists. Have you had an mri and an eeg brain scan and how about a therapist? You might need physch. meds. If I were you I would just stay on top of all those doctors, drive them crazy. Who the hell cares. You need help and that's their job!!! Make them do their job. I know how depressed you can get. I suffer from depression, panic attacks, etc...I wish I could help you more, but one thing I can tell you is please don't give up. You have people that care. I don't even know you but I care. Please keep me posted, don't quit. Hang in there. God bless you. I'm praying for you.

I feel for you. I am going through somewhat the same thing. It's really sad how our government has failed us with laws that are suppose to protect us. I think the Dea is our biggest problem. Our law says as long as a prescription is legit a pharmacy has to fill it. Not true - Pharmacies do what they want. Congress should pass a law that as long as a Dr writes a legit script a pharmacy has to fill. It should go back to the way it use to be when any Dr could write pain meds. PAIN MANAGEMENT IS WHAT STARTED ALL THIS WAR AGAINST DRUGS ANYWAY. But who do we turn to for help? I've wrote congress, government, and even went to the news press and that was a real joke. They want to put on the news how pain meds are killing people, but the real truth is it's our Dr's and pharmacies that are killing people because they're cutting people off their pain meds so they are turning to the streets to get them and over half are overdosing. They need to tell the real news. There has to be someone out there that will listen. Our world has created its own war.

I have to agree. Doctors need to be put in jail for prescribing mess for years then just taking it away. If they only had to feel the pain of withdraws then maybe they understsnd. For one its dangerous cause your body use to it and needs it. Suddenly stopping mess you have taken for years can cause serious side effects such as HEART ATTACKS.

I am on Soma medication for my back pain and shoulder pain since last two years and I am very happy with the result as I have taken the medication only according to my doctor prescription and direction.

Celeste Says:

My question is What do you use in place of Soma? I was in an accident almost fifty years ago. Since then I get muscle spasms that are very painful. Somewhere along the line I was given soma. When my children were young I had spasms all the time. I never abused Soma, never took more than prescribed. They are short acting but they worked for that time. Now my Dr said that no one was writing scripts for them. That is fine if I can find a good substitute. I've tried several and nothing comes close

I realize this is old, but OH MY! I do hope that you got some help because your post is very clear that you needed help. I cannot believe nobody suggested that you go to a Medical Detox ASAP! Of course most ppl that respond are so self absorbed, they are too busy trying to make everyone believe " they are not addicts/pill seekers" cause they have this illness, ect... ect...

Doctors are willing to give out medication left and right then they take you off of it and expect you to deal with the sickness yourself and the pain they don’t give you any information that would help with the sickness and pain they just don’t give a crap I’ve been dealing with my pain for over 20 years and I take Tylenol extra strength three times a day and that’s it but when they had me on all these morphine Oxsee‘s Percocets and took me off I got real sick what I found Out That works good for the sickness is seasickness pills if you’re on medication or doing illegal drugs and you’re trying to quit and get off the drugs and you got the sickness take the seasickness pills it will help with the sickness and for the pain I would try the CBD oil or medical marijuana but I don’t use that are use my hate and anger to Control my pain it does work but I’m afraid somebody’s going to say the wrong thing and I’m gonna snap and beer in jail for life so I don’t recommend using anger for your pain but it does work for me I have 7 feet of scar my whole vertebrae got cracks deteriorating squish You name it I got it and I won’t have surgery I had six of them done on my neck same spot it just kept deteriorate if I had surgery and lower back the same thing would happen and I’m at the same level has everyone else trying to find a cure I really don’t wanna go back on medication and have them take that away from you again once I get to a point where I can live a life oh you’re doing good you don’t need them now but in reality you’re doing good because of the medication not because you’re healed...And remember never ever give up don’t give them the satisfaction fight fight for your life even if you think it ain’t worth nothing it is worth everything plus you let them win if you do take your life don’t let them win you be the winner stay in flight... God bless you and God bless all

Re: RandyK (# 2)

Hydro morphine is very short acting. It lasted for me seemed like 20 minutes. Morphine lasts pretty long. Methadone was the best pain reliever I’ve ever used but it’s not a good drug IMHO. Does a lot of damage to the body.
Good luck you are not alone!

I have had no withdrawals from soma at all but from the opiates it’s been bad. Don’t start suboxone it’s worse of a detox than “ normal” opiates if I had to do it again I would have weaned off opiates slowley bupernephrine causes paws and is worse the longer your on it. Good luck. It’s a long road. Don’t give up it’s worth it!

Re: margie (# 7)

I realize your post is old, BUT I had to point out that ALL you people that keep judging addicts- should take a look in the mirror! YOU are an addict, if you have to have " your " xanax or pain meds then YOU have an addiction.
