I suffer from chronic headache my neck something wrong with it both my shoulders my mid back my lower back pain down both legs diabetic nerve pain both hands and feet I tried over the counter medicines cyropractor physical therapy acupuncture traction everything. I suffer from ptsd fight or flight because of pain with severe depression but I have no doctor . I have a hernia they won't operate until pain is managed but they won't manage pain because of the DEA . Even the physiologist said my pain needs managed  . I left my last pain clinic because they had me in an exam room for 20 minutes with cotton in my mouth is ask my emergency contact to see where the doctor was and they where in another exam room having a pizza party . I'm not a drug addict so I left no one should be treated like this they got paid to make me sit there while they ate pizza . Since then I quit my primary care physician because I asked him of all the steroids and designer drugs throughout my dealing with pain management he said they only do that to justify the pain medication  ?  They blew me from 230lbs to 390 lbs i was bed ridden because of them I trusted these doctors  . He was not watching out for me . So I tried to find another doctor they say pain needs managed send me to pain clinics they won't treat because of the dea and politicians playing doctor  . Pennsylvania has legalized Cannibis but you need a doctor to get a card ? I will never look for another doctor because then I will be doctor shopping  ? I won't ask for help because I'll be drug seeking  ? I will never be the same  . I have been abused mentally physically and financially by doctors and politicians and the dea  . I would kill myself but I fight there are others God gave me life he decides when to call me home .

Please help me .
Toms River NJ: I received a letter from Senator Chris Smith who assured me that bill that was passed is to make sure legitimate pain pts have access to meds. I did read it several times and to be honest, the wording in it I can hardly understand lol, I am in many chronic pain grps and ive posted the PL 114-145,S483 law into these groups with the letter I rec'd from the Senator as I was unsure about what it was saying. They feel bringing a copy of it may help pts get their meds. What I got from it is that these corrupt agencies who came up with these INHUMANE restrictions have a year to report back the hardships legitimate pain pts are having in obtaining meds. Is that what you read?? I will be contacting Senator Smiths office, ar least Ill try and call him Monday for further explanation of this so called law allowing legitimate pain pts access to meds.

Please Warriors if you haven't done so already email Red Lawhern who is helping our fight and looking for as many of our stories as possible. He just did a radio interview and he spoke with passion and perserverence and hit every obstacle a pain pt is going thru, he told the truth behind the FALSIFIED CDC OVERDOSE STATISTICS, HIS WIFE IS A CHRONIC PAIN PATIENT AS WELL AND GAS SEEN ENOUGH HUMAN SUFFERING. HIS EMAIL IS lawhern@hotmail.com

Limiting access to only terminal cancer is ridiculous. Do the right thing for once. The DEA and CDC did not include equal representation for chronic pain patients. Time to start over and give us a voice.
HOWELL NJ THAT IS A JOKE REREAD IT
ENDICOTT NJ THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATION I WILL SIGN AND SHARE AS THIS DOESN'T SEEM TO BE A PETITION BUT RATHER A BLOG
I have had 2 back surgeries with only temporary pain relief. My primary physician will only prescribe the lowest amount of pain meds possible without me having to go to pain management. Doctors are being bullied by the DEA because of a few crooked doctors and patients. That being said I am suffering and not getting what I need to relieve the pain. I am 49 yrs old
The War on Drugs is a Farce: Reported by former DEA agent Michael Levine http://ncoic.com/deajive.htm
So many people who have had their medication lower or taken from them have died due to turning to illegal drugs and over dosing! Just look in the obituaries, this is hapening daily. Those of us with legitimate cause for being relieved of pain should not have the government controling our medications, no one knows how severe are pain is except for us that is in the pain and how our medication is actually helping us to be able to function again with a pain free life.
have had two back surgeries, more back shots than I can count and the pain is back. Now, they want to do more surgery. I do not want to have anymore surgery. It helps for a while but it comes back. No more surgery for me. I am 62 years old and all I want to do is live my live with little pain. I have a hard time getting meds for pain control because of all of this sillyness. If I want to be a drug addict I would get it off of the street instead of paying to see a physician and asking. This is hurting real patients and we have to just live (or not) with the pain, Help us please.
I suffer from chronic pain on a daily basis and have a doctor who refuses to help me with it I guess most doctors nowadays think it's no big deal but I bet you if it was them or one of their loved ones and chronic pain they'd be pulling out that prescription tablet with a quickness enough is enough some of us really need some help it's definitely no fun living with debilitating pain every single day of your life
To Jean D. from Toms River: if you haven't signed already, http://petitions.moveon.org to withdraw the CDC guidelines petition is actually going somewhere and only around 400 more signatures are needed. God help us.
PAIN WARRIORS. ON 4/19/2016 PL114-145, S483 WAS PASSED INTO LAW, ENSURING LEGITIMATE CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS ACCESS TO PAIN MEDICATION!!! FOR SOME REASON I CAN'T PASTE THE LINK. PLEASE GOOGLE IT, PRINT IT AMD BRING IT TO EVERY DR YOU SEE AND DENIES YOU PAIN MEDICATION

GOOGLE: PL 114-145 , S483

KEEP WRITING TO YOUR SENATORS AND PAT ARTENTION TO YOUR STATE LAWS. FOR I STANCE IN INDIANA A PATIENT IS ONLY ALLOWED 15MG PER DAY. WTF IS THAT!?!? ID BE DEAD IF I LIVED THERE. WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS FOR GOD SAKE ! STOP THE TORTURE OF INNOCENT LAW ABIDING CITIZENS WHO ARE CRIPPLED IN SEVERE PAIN!!
Almost every law passed to stop crime affects the innocent way more than it does the guilty. The people abusing drugs will always find their high and then what about the people in pain 24/7? So your going to put us out of work cause now we will have no life at all. Everyone on disability or killing themselves. Until you have to live your life in pain 24/7 you need not make any decisions on people who do. I'm tired of being treated like a criminal because I have chronic pain. How can you sit there and discriminate against people with disabilities?
What are you doing with this petition and how many signatures are needed? Too much spamming here and repeat signatures
I was appalled reading of the young addict who stated people faked their pain to sell pills for extra retirement cash. That's low. I can tell you young man that I've never done that - and I'm sure many other ethical people have not. Same story: those who have misused it have ruined it for all.

It still does not excuse the DEA from implementing and unworkable solution - especially when a multitude of DEA agents have been found stealing and using the drugs they confiscate, stealing weapons, driving drunk, and engaging in sordid sex parties.

Their brains must be burnt out from the drugs they've used because the foolhardy solution to the "addiction" problem was to hurt innocent people.

The wrong people are in power. What is being done to innocent victims is evil.
Okay so, i'm sorry if you feel like i don't belong here, and i may be responsble for some of your pain. I appologize, but keep in mind i am a person too. I get that doctors are afraid to loose their licence and what not. But it should not matter who you are or what your past is. I, for example, am a recovering addict. But guess what? The doctors started this addiction. Yet when I was cut off I never doctor shopped or anything like that. I use to buy my pills from grandpa Joe Shmo, dying from cancer, selling his script to buy marijuana instead. Now, I have been on suboxone for a few years, and have turned my life around. I have a family, job, apartment, car, ect. Five years ago, nothing. I made bad life choices that I may not have made, if my pain were treated properly. Now, here I am having even more issues, and I cannot receive ANY relief. I developed ulcers on both feet that have grown to the size of baseballs! My addiction treatment Dr. is prescribing me outrageous amounts of suboxone, six per day, but it doesn't help the pain whatsoever. I take the maximum amount of Tylenol, Advil, and Aleve. All in all 32 pills per day. I still wake up every 3 hours crying. I cannot walk. I skip bandage changes, and can't shower anymore. My two year old son is scared of me cause I cry out and yell in pain so much. I'm 32 and use a walker. Recently, I lost my job. I am suffering. Really suffering. My options for alternative pain relief? Valium, and Ketamine. It's a joke. The doctors excuse for letting me suffer is that they don't want to contribute to my addiction. So what? Get me hooked on benzo's and induce a hallucinogenic K hole? I could abuse anything if I wanted. Especially the benzo's. But honestly, and this will sound weird coming from an addict, I don't like being messed up. So I won't touch the benzo's or special K. Leaving me with very few options. It is almost coming down to a relapse. Or legally buy some research chemical 6800 times more potent than morphine, and overdose. You know, come on. Five years and the life I worked so hard to rebuild, gone down the drain, cause I'm going to end up buying six 40$ perk 30's from someone's grandma every day. Do no harm my butt. Oh yeah, by the way, doctors made these wounds a lot worse. There's such bad stigma around these pills in America. They are going overboard. If we lived in Canada, I could buy Tylenol with codeine OTC. Mexico...anything. It is my life, and my responsibility to stay straight. There is a huge difference between legit pain management, and relapse. I'm already technically on a narcotic, so what's the difference to them? The difference to me is relief from this hell. 9 months I have dealt with this. If I were prescribed pain meds, at least the docs will know I'll take my meds, and not just sell them on the street. Unfortunately, it's not the addicts ruining it for everyone, it's the people who fake their pain to supplement their retirement payments. If doctors spent more time making sure
You don't feel this way if you did then you would change things!
We are being punished because of addicts, we are being discrimated against because of our disability and no one will help, there will soon be a sharp rose on suicides before the end a 2016 due to the cdc and the dea attacking our doctors and us patient's. Why are they doing this to us?
The Adversary...knows there are boundaries set by Father Creator. Men think no such limits exist when they seize political 'power' through party racketeering, money &/or force.
That day of reckoning...*ALWAYS* arrives...and it shall be a terrible day for the wicked.
I cant even get some of the most basic care here. No yearly exams offered, etc. have insurance that covers all but they are pushing me away because i have been fighting against this drug war. Doctors dont like it when you dont give up. Asked for relief from the fatigue yesterday that pain causes. They even get more angry. To all here, be careful. They can do things with your medical records that could hurt even worse. They cant deny pain relief w/o covering their butts. Have noticed many ' Errors" in mine recently. Most doctors here play follow the leader here. None will go against another even if things are wrong. Finding another doc is almost pointless. As said below, you have to be mentally deranged to do this to innocent patients. Either that or the Rapture has already happened and i missed it and i am in the middle of all hell breaking loose.
We're denied legitimate pain relief, but if you work for the DEA you can use drugs that are confiscated and get away with it: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/09/27/few-dea-agents-fired-misconduct/72805622/
This is whats been going on the past couple of yrs??? my dr is anal!! I guess this ******** from the DEA has their greedy paws in this, well I am a human first, Ive had 29 surgerys and im 52. All my massave medical records and tests are well documented, when I have severe breakthrough pain I go to the ER per my young pcp request, Im am told by the ER Doc after More tests that yes my spine from my neck to my tailbone that yes it is totally in shreds and he would never be able to handle pain like that, but sorry we cant give you any thing for relief!!! I think a good laywer to sue the Dr.s into bankruptcy for NOT doing their Jobs!!! My 29 yr old daughter had her third C-section a yr ago was only given tyl. #3 1 every 4 to 6 hrs, are they mental I had 4 C-sections and was given 100md demoral injections every 4 hrs. then switched to hydrocodone 10/325 1 or 2 every 4 to 6 hrs, then sent home with hydro 5/325 every 4 to 6 hrs enough for two weeks I NEVER became addicted or tried to get more after the two weeks were up!!! My daughter fell out of the hospital bed trying to get a nurse to bring her some pain relief, she laid their for an hour before a nurse finally came in to give her 1 tyl#3 and help her back into the bed, all this happened within 4 hours of having the major surgery, and they sent her home with NOTHING I would love any dr or DEA people especially the men to go through that with plain old tyl.!!! At least with her 1st 2 C-sections she had human Drs that kept her on a pca pump with the worthless dilodid for the first 48hrs, then 1 or 2 hydros 10/325 until she went home, and with 2 weeks of 5/325 hydros for 2 weeks, but she was kept comfortable right after the surgerys that she did not even take all of them!! my 25 yr old daughter had a natural birth 5 yrs ago and she was givin 10/325 q 4 yo 6 hrs 1 or two pills,and was also sent home with 2 weeks of 5/325 hydros 1 or 2 q 4 to 6 hrs and she also did not finish them! Both daughters are pregnant again, I cant emagin the horror they are going to go through because of this sick and dememted DEA bs!!! as for my self I have come down from 100mcg fentanyl patches to 25, my pharmest is soo sympathetic that Im not given the breakthrough meds that even the duragici web sites spef.. that for each lowering they have the dosage of oral mes to take temp orally but my anal dr refuses to even consider, so I asked to come off the patches completely, and just take tyl.#4 1 or 2 q 4 to six hrs, and wean off them over 4 to 6 weeks, which I have done before with no problems, but nope she won't do a months supply, but would make me come in once a week to resupply,but she had to ask whoever in the clinic, not a Dr but someone who oversees all the pain med prescribed. I never herd a word back!! My pharmacist said if I could come off 25mcg patches to such a weak pain ml. like tyl.#4 that would be awesome, because the manufactures of fentanyl have a very specific dose for each level of coming down, down to 25mcg
PROOF THE DEA IS A CORRUPT ORGANIZATION: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/23/dea-controversies_n_5992324.html
i think that when you are in server pain .and your doctor wants to force you to sign a pain medication contract is not good for the patient or the doctor to treat you like a crimenal and make a fool of your rights you no longer have freedom of speech or rights .what has this country turned into??,
So here's the deal: The DEA is seizing drugs for personal use and falsely accusing innocent people to justify their budget. Corrupt, amoral psychopaths are running government agencies:

Vote Trump. The others running only want to keep the perks and fat unjustified salaries coming and to keep the Status Quo - they do not care about YOU.

I've been volunteering for Trump's campaign. If he wins - I'm going to ask him to address this travesty. You can volunteer too. Google it.

Here's your problem not chronic pain patients !
DEA why are you doing this to us? we did not ask to live in pain everyday. I went threw 3 back surgeries and even had a stimulator put inside and that don't even help my pain. I go threw all this because I pray it would work so I can take less pain medicine. I'm 42yrs old, and this is my worst nightmare. How can I live 30-40 more years without pain medicine. I never smoked and I don't drink. I never been arrested and always loved my country. But now to see our own country taking away the one thing that helps me get out of bed being ripped away is not a country I'm proud of anymore. We did not ask for this, and why you want to see us suffer is just plain evil. If you don't feel pain good for you and that's why it's so easy for you people to take away our life support. Most of us take it like we are suppose to. Why punish all of us because some people are irresponsible. I believe you want us to die off because most of us won't be able to take the pain to long. I hope you can sleep well at night better then most of us that can't because the pain makes it in possible. My Sun servers his country and now I tell him to get out this country does not care about us. I told my son God for bid something happened to you and you have to live in pain they will not help you they will not give you relief they don't care. I want my son to finish his last years in the service and get out! you people will not destroy my son's health and then leave him like a wounded dog in the street. God bless everyone out there going threw pain and our own people will not help us.
I have been totally disabled from bilateral neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome with arterial compression since 2004 (but it took 8 yrs to finally get that diagnosis), so it's been a long battle. I know there's no cure and I'll always live in pain. The pain meds help me live, not pain free, but function with a little more quality of life. I've never abused them or asked for more in amount or higher dosage; in fact, I redused my dosage on my own after I had to quit working and that helped with not flaring up so often. The meds are always locked in a safe bolted to a shelf. I don't get high from my meds. The doctor I've been seeing for over 20 yrs is retiring next month and I'm afraid I will not find a doctor willing to take care of me....why are legitimate patients being victimized because of the few who break the law? You wouldn't take meds from someone with MS, ALS, or RA.....why me?

I'm part of a pain management program for several things. I had a total spine fusion where the hook slipped partway out causing chronic back pain, am 12% disabled in left knee from a work related injury, have a broken right ankle that healed incorrectly, and have a dislocated hip from birth that they thought they fixed but slipped back out at one point. The hip I'm having surgery for soon but the other injuries I just have to live with. I take my medicine responsibly and don't abuse, sell, or give away my medicine. I have routine drug tests, go to all appointments and classes. I know I'll be in some pain for the rest of my life, but I just want to be able to go to work and function daily to teach my children not to live off the government. Why am I being punished for those who abuse drugs. They should screen people on pain meds but those who are responsible should get what they need to live daily life while those who take advantage should be denied.
This is nonsense. Treat chronic pain patients like you would any other debilitating illness. We look for every other holistic effort to reduce pain. These medications are a last resort for REAL pain patients, and they are lifesaving on many days...so we can function, hold down a job, take care of families and households. We can't just lay in bed in pain until we die.
I have RA & Fibro and I take my pains meds responsible. Those of us that do ate being punished for the actions of those who don't. They will find a way to get drugs anyway they can so you're only hurting us that really need them.
I have degenerative disk disease. It is difficult to obtain pain medication and my doctor is terrified of the out of control DEA. Put medical care back in the control of the Doctor and his patient. This agency is denying US Citizens one of our fundamental rights, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is impossible to be happy when in pain.
I got Lyme Disease in 2011 and was finally adjudicated disabled on April 6, 2015. I was poorly treated for the disease in my area and came close to dying. The effects of the disease was arthritis in ever joint in my body. It also aggravated my old ankle injury to the point I cannot walk very far. No doctor in my area will order pain meds or order an MRI. I am 64 years old and would like some resemblance of an active life, but the DEA does not believe I deserve a life. My x-rays show moderate to severe arthritis in most of my joints. Now my muscles have become atrophied which makes for more severe pain. I really hate the DEA.
I think it is horrible that a persons right to get proper medical treatment for Chronic pain is being put in jeopardy.For all the financial hardships we are faced with and the soaring cost of medical insurance the one less expensive method is being called into judgment. After having radio frequency,PT , chiropractic,epidurals, and expensive doctors visits, the medication which I can afford with or without insurance is now going to be harder to get. It is horrible I did not ask for chronic conditions that have me in pain, the people abusing drugs they are the ones making my life n my doctors life even harder. My doctors have a hard enough time helping me function while in pain now its even harder, cause people who don't know my situation are saying things and giving their thoughts on stuff they know nothing about. Please keep your thoughts to yourself, that is why I have a team of doctors.
I fell 50 feet down an elevator in 1979. I have been dealing with four crushed vertebrae and many other issues ever since. For my doctor to tell me I am going to be "weaned off" the pain medication I need is absolutely absurd. The pain from 4 crushed vertebrae is utterly debilitating and hellish- it cannot be treated with Tylenol, PERIOD. It's obnoxiously cruel for these DEA creeps to stick their nose into my medical care and I will NOT be quiet about it.
Please don't make chronic pain patients suffer because of abusers.
They should leave the doctors to do the doctoring
In fact it's funny . they just came out with a new drug for constipation from opoits. Y aren't they taking that off the market.?? Plain BS
Alot of spamming. I thought this was a petition not a blog. What are you doing with this petition and when. How many more legitimate signatures needed to do something
Does the definition of psychopathy seem to define the absurd legal leadership condemning individuals in pain?

I thought of running for office myself! One of us has to - but I can't get out of the house. We need to stop appealing to fools and elect someone to a position to represent us. What about Pharmacist Steve? We can start our OWN organization. We've been pushed too far folks. Pain makes you fight back.

When are we going to hold a rally?
Where?
Who is going to follow through on this?

If the "government" is permitted to take critical pain relief from people - ask yourself what's going to be next???

You either stand up and fight or lay down and die like a dog.

Who is going to meet in a rally? Do we have an organizer? I know someone who can design us a website. We have to get organized. There are intelligent people here - I've read the stories. We can't spin our wheels - we need to take action.

If anyone is familiar with the Psalms, David prayed: "Who will rise up with me against evildoers…workers of iniquity?" Psalm 94:16

We need to rise up against this overt crushing of our rights as human beings.

Where is a central location that we can all hold a rally? Maybe we can hold simultaneous rally's in different states and get news coverage. My cousin held a rally and had a man dress as George Washington - it drew a lot of attention.

I know everybody may feel as bad as I do - but make a choice. We can't live like this - we all know it. Someone come up with ideas - maybe better than mine - but for God's sake let's ACT. This is a holocaust on patients in pain.
Appalling statements by legislators denigrating individuals with pain syndromes is explained in Forbes Magazine: Everyone I have ever worked with has, at some point, called another colleague or coworker “crazy.” But does your job actually attract true psychopaths? In the book “The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success,” Kevin Dutton explains that there are jobs that can attract literal psychopaths – and also jobs that are least likely to do so.

It’s important to note that a psychopathic person isn’t necessarily one that is set out to kill others (even though you might feel as such on a Wednesday afternoon in the office.) In reality, psychopaths merely – and typically – just lack emotions and empathy, or the ability to identify with others. Dutton has said that ”a number of psychopathic attributes [are] actually more common in business leaders than in so-called disturbed criminals — attributes such as superficial charm, egocentricity, persuasiveness, lack of empathy, independence, and focus.”

This may explain why many of the jobs attractive to psychopaths – such as CEO’s, salespeople and media types – are often found in the tech industry.

So what jobs are most attractive to psychopaths? Here’s the list, originally published online by Eric Barker:

1. CEO

2. Lawyer

3. Media (Television/Radio)

4. Salesperson

5. Surgeon

6. Journalist

I just read a terrifying article. A major pain clinic in Knoxville TN has completely shut its doors to chronic pain pts, no more meds at all. The comments that were made by :
Senator Dr Richard Briggs Knoxville TN, were the most appalling I've seen yet, He pretty much comes right out and states we are all addicts and that its just the beginning of the "pillmill clinics" and drs. There's to much to repeat here, But ckearly this Senator has no idea what severe daily pain is like. and he is on a mission to shut every pain dr down.
WTF ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO WHEN WE'VE TRIED EVERYTHING, I AM SO VERY VERY ANGRY.

mary fri. WI- THANK YOU FOR SHARING THAT PETITION ON MOVEON.ORG. EVERYONE PLEASE GO SIGN GET YOUR FAMILY/FRIENDS TO SIGN. WEVE GOT TO FIGHT! OUR MEDS WILL BE GONE FOR EVERYONE SOON, THEN WHAT!? SUICIDESWILL SKYROCKET, MILLIONS WILL BE FORCED TO GO ON DISABILITY, FAMILIES WILL BE DESTROYED, HOMES AND JOBS LOST, LEGITIMATE PAIN PTS HAVE A RIGHT TO A QUALITY OF LIFE!!
What a nightmare, a travesty of medicine and a HORROR! It's the ANTI-HYPOCRATIC oath. Period.
Freehold NJ - you are right on the money. This country is corrupt. You damned better believe they're getting their pain treated. WE NEED INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS TO INVESTIGATE THE DRUG HABITS OF THE DEA, CDC, AND WHOEVER ELSE IS PUSHING THESE DANGEROUS RULES ON INNOCENT PEOPLE. It's all about "The I've Got Mine Club." Who but a psychopath would withdraw pain medication from needy human beings with no remorse? I hurt reading others' stories - because I'm living it.
I contacted my cousin who was involved in politics - she lives in PA and is in bad shape and is still getting her pain meds, but I'm afraid not for long, as she doesn't have cancer. SHE ADVISED ME THAT A PETITION WILL DO NOTHING. SHE SAID WE MUST ALL GATHER, BRING OUR WHEELCHAIRS AND SIGNS AND CALL THE NEWSPAPERS.

I KNOW WE'RE ALL IN PAIN BUT IF WE HOPE TO SEE BETTER DAYS WE HAVE TO ORGANIZE AND STAND AS ONE TO OVERCOME THIS ILLEGAL, IMMORAL TYRANNY.

- SUGGESTION - MOST DOCS WILL GIVE TRAMADOL - IT IS -NOT- AN OPIATE - I TAKE 3 AT A TIME - HELPS TO A POINT. IT MAY BE ENOUGH TO GET YOU TO A RALLY.

1. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO MEET?
2. WHEN?
3. HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN MAKE IT TO NJ OR PA? OR SHOULD WE HOLD IT SOMEWHERE ELSE? SUGGESTIONS?
4. WHO WANTS TO BE THE LEADER HERE? I'M AN IDEA PERSON, AND DO WELL IN A SUPPORT ROLE. IS SOMEONE A GOOD ORGANIZER?

LETS DO THIS. I DON'T WANT TO SEE NOTHING BUT AN OCEAN OF PAIN BEFORE ME. THIS IS WRONG AND WE HAVE TO REVOLT.

ALL THE LIES BEING PUT OUT BY KOLODNY AND CREW, THE CDC, DEA, FDA AND THE GOVERNMENT, THERE'S GOT TO BE SOME PEOPLE THAT HAVE COMPASSION AND EMPATHY AND ARE WITNESSING THE GENOCIDE...THE DEATHS OF MANY GOOD INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO ENDED THEIR LIVES TO ESCAPE THE PAIN..SURELY THE GUILT OF KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE HAS GOT TO BE A HEAVY BURDEN TO CARRY AND ONCE EXPOSED, THE DEA, CDC, FDA, PROP AND THE KILLERS IN CONGRESS WILL ALL BE TAKEN DOWN.. DENYING HUMAN BEINGS OUR RIGHT TO PAIN TREATMENT, WHICH NEEDS TO CONSIST OF OPIOD PAIN MEDICATION AS MANY OF US ARE BEYOND TYLNOL, AND SUFFERING FOR YEARS, IS INFLICTING PAIN , HARM , SUFFERING AND TORTURE AND THAT IS A CRIME!!!

I am fortunate not to suffer from chronic pain, but many people in my age group (baby boomer) do. By encouraging doctors to undertreat pain, the government promotes the illegal sale of narcotics, because desperate people take desperate measures to relieve their agony. Let doctors prescribe, and see the illegal market fall. Make the DEA stop practicing medicine without a licence.
The Dea, CDC, Senators and Congressmen don't give a hoot about YOUR pain, as long as THEIRS is treated. A relative is a health care worker and those with $$ are given pain relief, as are Senators and Congress AND their families WHO ARE ROUTINELY bumped ahead of you and I in hospitals. These worthless people are treated like royalty and to hell with you commoners. I waited in the ER for 3 hours in pain and someone of importance, unlike I, was whisked in ahead of me. I complained to "Patient Relations" and was lied to. TELL YOUR PASTOR/ MINISTER/ CHURCH - THESE PEOPLE HOLD SOME SWAY. I keep thinking of ending it like everyone else. This country is screwed up. EVERYONE MUST DO THEIR PART FOR THE GOOD OF ALL OF US WHO ARE SUFFERING. TELL THE MAILMAN FOR GOD'S SAKE - ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN. I DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER I CAN HOLD ON. AM GOING TO TRY TO MOVE TO CO TO GET WEED. THIS COUNTRY IS TOO FAR GONE.
The CDC Has been corrupted by professionals in the addictions treatment business ! And professionals in Pain Management the studies were BIAS and falsified NO one was allowed to challenge the studies ! The CDC Has become rouge and corrupt. CPP are taking there lives due to intractable pain This is unhumane treatment. What does this say about our government. Lives don't matter as much as special interest groups. Nothing will change the media is behind the agenda! Doctors know opiates work better than any other method of pain management of course all methods should be tried first .. However to tell Doctors to not prescribe opiates for Chonic pain is insane and criminal.Any groups that question the CDC guidelines are wrote off as having a monitary agenda this is not the case. While all those involved in the studies were in the business of making money from the CDC guidelines. When you have advocates such as Hillary Clinton pushing for these guidelines and her friend Dr. Andrew Klonody of Phoenix House it with sitting ex dea board members and you studie those experts in the field ! These guidelines benefit them and make them rich. We all know it's corrupt . What does it matter how many people die from intractable pain. Clearly Clinton Klonody and others don't care how many die and suffer it is nothing more than genocide on CPP IS THIS HOPE AND CHANGE????
Some chronic pain patients are no longer able to find a Dr to treat them. This also includes patients who need further surgery on an injury that's being actively treated. In some cases without surgery they may loose the ability to use the injured appendage. With out corrective surgery they can and will be left further disabled because of no treatment is available . If by chance they do Find a Dr your told pain medication will not be available after surgery. I'm referring to joint replacement and reconstruction of nerve , tendons and bone replacement or removal .Is this something you are strong enough to get done without any pain medication to aid in your recovery. When you do get an appointment to see a Dr once your medical history is reviewed before your first visit most Dr's require your records before your first visit. On your first visit you are informed that they can't and won't treat you. But you will still be billed for the visit. If you ask why . Your told you are a Dr shopper only trying to get pain medication. Even if you have all your medical records and in them it clearly states what your medical conditions are and why the surgery is necessary to prevent your debilitating pain from getting far worse than it is already . I ask how is this even possible ? We are required to have health insurance that we can't use . Is this how you would want to be treated by your Dr , country and fellow American's . If you knew an operation could be performed to improve your quality of life wouldn't you be upset if it was no longer an option. Something needs to be put in place to provide needed medicine and treatment. As a result of the many corrective surgeries I needed to save the function in my arm I have developed RSD,Rheumatoid arthritis and Fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression, diabetes and a heart condition . Imagine all you skin on fire and your hands and your knees and legs so swollen you cry when you move. I just want what every one else wants and that is to have good quality of life with minimal pain. Thank you for your time and I pray you never find yourself in my position. I only exists I do not live a fulfilling and quality life.
We need to organize then march/limp/crawl on washington! This needs to stop, it needs to stop now!
I have a genetic form of degenerative discs. I have been tild by my physician to quit taking asprin and other otc anti inflamatory aids. I do however continue to take asprin because although it helps little it is more help than anything he will prescribe to me. I live in constant pain. In the past I have taken hydracodone. I understand and knoe addicts but personally never abused them. I think its unfair for doctors to assume all pain patients are addicts.
I am a 56 year old woman who works with special needs children. about 16 years ago as I picked up a little boy with CP I felt my back pop, from that moment on I have been in pain. I have been to every kind of Dr., therapy etc you can imagine. Ten years ago I found a pain Dr. who gave me methadone for pain. Three low dose pills a day. I had my life back still have pain but I could live with it. Two weeks ago he had to take it away because the government has decided it is bad for us. Now I am in misery, I have no life and may have to go on disability. When did it become the governments job to tell me what I need. I have never done drugs and I do not even drink. So now you have ruined what life I have left. I hope one day you will walk in my shoes. Who do you think you are?
West Plains, MO - you're welcome. PLEASE EMAIL THIS COMPANY TO PUSH THIS DRUG THROUGH. I HAD A HELLISH DAY.

Grandview, MO and the rest - I laid in bed all day in pain and finally researched alternative pain relief. DO NOT ALERT ANYONE OF THIS OR WE MAY BE SCREWED AGAIN: You can buy 1. Kratom 2) Wild Opium Lettuce

http://healthwyze.org/reports/658-the-potent-and-natural-painkillers-that-are-still-legal

I just ordered some of each - I can't keep on like this. AT LEAST THIS MAY HELP US ALL TAMP DOWN THE PAIN UNTIL WE GET CARA TO EXPEDITE IT'S NON-ADDICTIVE OPIATE.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO 'ONE' THING - PUSH FOR CR845

I ALREADY EMAILED THEM AND PLAN TO EMAIL AS MANY LOCAL NEWSPAPERS AS I CAN. IF YOU ALL DO LIKEWISE AND WE STAND TOGETHER WE CAN GET THIS THING DONE.
As a woman, I have lived in its body, MY Body, for 50 years, no you can not give women anti-depressant, because as My Doctor said, Woman go thru childbirth, take this Medicine, since you can handle the pain. And since the pain will make you depressed, here take this!
Men I know personally, go in and say "Doc, my back hurts", They walk out with all kinds of pain medication, no Mri or x-rays needed?
Woman are being discriminated against.
Not saying men aren't having same problems with doctors letting government interfere in their Doctor -Patient relationships, sorry. But I know where I live, this is the norm. Men now sell their meds to the women who can't get it legal. I won't buy, I can't go to jail and survive w/o what little help I get.
I have chronic pain since my near-fatal car wreck in 1998,have tried cortisone shots,chiropractors,and over the counter medication. Nothing works. I'm due to have a total hip replacement next month,but yet all the Doctors will rx me is ibuprofen.I ask why they will not TRY a pain medication on me,and they just tell me;We don't prescribe medication." I am being unfairly discriminated against for no known reason,and have NO history of being a drug addict,hence I've never been tried on anything resembling a 'pain pill'.Could you please tell me what I can do?? Or where I can get the help I need?! Thanks!BTW,I am confidened to my walker & the Doctors have MRI,Catscanes& x-rays to PROVE my lower lumbar is a mess,sciatica,fibromyalgia,chronic hip pain in both.AND,I'm on disability for my pain!! Thanks!!

Thanks New Jersey! Need all the hope i can get these days. Never was told its coming. I thought i had read that it was held up by the FDA in feb for small reasons. They are going to have to do something soon. Just pray the doctors dont find an excuse with this one.
