    I was told by my pain mgmt dr I had to choose between her and my psychiatrist. Now I can’t leave the house without extreme pain and I’m in bed most of every day. I no longer have a life of any kind. I pray my life ends soon.

    I was given pain medicine as one way to control pain in my back due to herniated from degenerative disk disease which I was diagnosed with over 25 years ago. I never took pain meds until 7 years ago when I had a tear in my labrum and had formed bone spurs in my arthritic hips. I also was then diagnosed with stenosis in my neck. Bad genes for sure because my dad and sister suffered from many of these. When I was sent to pain doctor I tried all the injections numerous times, was told surgery would not help and discouraged me from finding a permanent solution, and unfortunately found that the meds work and they were the least expensive, least time consuming, and most helpful thing given to me. All of a sudden my doctor has cut back on my dosage acknowledging that everything is worse with age, and why wouldn't it be? He gave me no alternative except for more costly shots which caused me to take time off work which is almost impossible at certain times of year to do. The medications helped me do my job in between shots, physical therapy etc. He is the one that pushed this on me to begin with, and I haven't found anything better an am on a low dose. Now the does is so low it barely helps. I feel like a beggar and held hostage to his demands of shots and more shots or no medication to help me live. I thought I had found a very compassionate doctor that believed how much pain I was in and that the drugs were not my idea, but his. It turns out he just wanted me to depend on him so that he could order expensive time consuming procedures because I have good insurance and can pay. I'm so scared. Both of my parents passed away this past couple of years, both my daughters went to college, and I went through a divorce. I do not have a lot of support as in driving me to shots. Also, I have to keep my job because it is just me taking care of myself at 53 and I feel helpless, alone, panicked, and bullied, and the sad thing is the doctor seems to like the control he has and has implied that I'm too dependent on the narcotics he prescribed and worked for me. I've told them the reduced dose doesn't work as well as the pain has gotten worse. I took a few more which made my urine test seem to have no opiods in it. I was honest though, then they said if that happens again I will have to come every two weeks to take a urine test. Do I lie, do I be honest, do I not take medicine that helps when I need it? I am very frustrated and mostly scared and confused. Please stop messing with pain treatments especially if they are minimal to begin with.

    DEA are not trained in medicine or the treatment of pain. If they would focus on illegally imported synthetic fentanyl being mixed with heroine which is causing the spike in drug deaths and bring those perpetrators to justice we'd be over half way home.

    I am one of those people who cannot take inflammatory medication due to 2 bleeding ulcers. In fact, the ulcers were caused by over the counter ibuprofens trying to relieve the pain. All I can take is Tylenol. We all know just how much Tylenol helps don’t we. Suicide is always a thought in my mind, but, my religion tells me that suicide is a sin. So for now, I am here. But I never make a promise about tonight or tomorrow. I have had 8 back surgeries. All the records are right there in the filing cabinet. But you have the medical society so scared that no one gets help. I feel like a 2nd rate citizen not important enough to consider helping. I am afraid to go to the street or order from overseas. You see, I don’t want to die. I want to live as much as you do. I just want to do it with less pain. No pain would be ideal, but, less pain is better than what I am currently living with. Please re-consider helping those of us with legit pain. Save a life!!!! Thank you and God’s blessings!!!!!

    You have personally deprived me of my very quality of life! You took my ability to care for me an mine away and flushed it down the toliet.

    No one asks to be diagnosed with disease/disorder that’s come with or causes chronic pain. Add a injury or two and that life is forever changed, not for the good. Please let our doctors be doctors, without the government in the examination rooms. I understand that my life is always going to be associated daily with pain, that’s bad enough. Allow me a post trauma life with some sort dignity.

    I have been suffering for about 15 years with chronic pain. I have multiple autoimmune and chronic illnesses. I waited 10 years before going on pain meds and just as they started to work and I started to slowly get my life back this hysteria began and I have been suffering more than ever now that I was cut down on the medication i need! I never filled early or abused my medication! This is a sad witch hunt and making Americans suffer in the worst way is pure evil!

    The DEA and DOJ are targeting legitimate physicians who are saving lives. Most recently they have targeted Dr. Forest Tennant MD DrPH, a world renowned pain researcher, intractable pain expert, widely published author, and recipient of a lifetime achievement award in which his fellow physicians honored him as "a Doctors Doctor, the highest honor any physician can receive. Doctors such as Dr.Tennant, and his patients, are not the cause of the opioid epidemic! The CDC recently has publicly stated that the real cause of most over-dose deaths is illegal heroin and illicit fentanyl. Here’s the real story of Dr. Tennant’s intractable pain practice: he is providing compassionate care to patients for whom all standard treatments have failed. Intractable pain is defined as: “A severe, constant pain that is not curable by any known means and causes adverse biologic effects on the body’s cardiovascular, hormone, and neurologic systems causing a bed or house-bound state and early death if not adequately treated” There are rare, extremely ill persons treated in the clinic and many near the end of life. His is in compliance with the California Guidelines, Federation of State Medical Board FSMB, CDC Guidelines as written, CA Intractable Pain Act, and CA Pain Patient's Bill of Rights. Dr. Tennant is hardly a “pill mill” and only around 160 patients are enrolled in the clinic. His nonprofit charitable organization, The Tennant Foundation, helps subsidize the clinic. Patients travel from all over the nation as he is their last resort for care. At least some patients will die within weeks if the clinic is not available. Where will these patients go if his clinic is closed down? What is your plan for caring for these intractable patients?

    Chronic pain patients are NOT the cause of the so-called opioid epidemic. Separate the numbers of legally prescribed opioid pain meds from the illegal fentynal & herion & start using the real numbers to determine course of legal action. Please stop punishing pain patients who rely on legally obtaining pain remedies for quality of life!

    I am dying from lack of pain management. Just take a look at the things that I suffer from. Might not have some of them if I wasn't humiliated and emotionally, verbally and physically abused by Dr s who won't treat me like a human being and take care of my pain.
