First Do No Harm: The DEA targets Physicians who treat their patients pain.

Messages Sent So Far
There are many Doctors who label their patients unfairly, demean these patients and degrade them because they are victims of chronic life long pain.
This is archaic medicine and does more harm than one can imagine. Physicans are afraid to treat patients who are victims of pain. The DEA targets them and instills fear in how they choose to treat their patients and what they prescribe. More and more, Doctors are refusing to treat their patients who have chronic pain. Patients are far too often considered "Malingering" or "Doctor Shopping".

Doctors far too often refuse to even communicate with these sufferers and label them as a LTDU ( Long Term Drug User) This is unfair, harmful medicine, and and causes llife long damage, both physically and mentally. It has effects on family, friends, co-workers and often causes the sufferer to withdraw from society. Through no fault of the patient, they withdraw from daily activities with their spouses, family and friends.

Much like the Abortion issue, you force these victims of pain into back door alleyways, store front pain clinics and worse. They receive no counseling on how to take their medication and often don't know what they are taking. Like in the past, by treating victims of pain this way, you force them into seeking help and relief outside of the Law. It is one issue to target illegal clinics but another issue entirely to target Physicians who should be allowed and should be treating their patients who have pain. Instead, Physicians are forced, out of fear of prescribing pain medication, to send their patients off to some "Unknown" pain clinic where they suffer yet more humiliating labels and discrimination. Pharmacists often feel the need to "interfere" and embarass the patient when they pick up their medications. They are treated like second or third class human beings.

Why is it that Doctors are no longer treating the 'Whole Patient?" Not addressing the underlying causes of chronic pain? There are many instances when there is NO clear cause for pain but that is not to say it doesn't exist. Pain receptors malfunction. Injuries can cause pain years later.
Elderly patients who suffer every remaining day of their lives are told by their Doctors' that "They are concerned about a possible addiction". What happened to the quality of their life? Their right to live their life to live without debilitating pain? Their only option may be to consider suicide?
The damage caused is a horror. Elderly commit suicide rather than live with this pain.
Physicians are taught (since the very beginning of medical school) that any patient requesting pain medication is to be Scrutinized" and to be "Wary" of them especially if they tell you they can't take anti-inflammatory drugs, that is a sure "SIGN" of addiction.
I was told this by my own Doctor. "What to watch out for when a patient requests help with their pain." They actually have a class for new Doctors on how NOT to treat patients.

I am a 57 year old diabled man who served in the ARMY in the early 1980’s and immediately after hurt my back and had 3 back surgeries before I was 30. I have had many more very painful problems and a triple fusion with 2 eight inch rods in 2009 which was a total failure. I have always been on and off pain meds in the past but never took them steadily, unless I was in dire pain. In 2000, I had a 70 MPH car accident and somehow survived and I saw a pain doctor in NY. He wanted to put a pain pump in me and I declined. I worked all this time that I described till 2009, and tired again till 2012 when I was in another car wreck which both so far we’re not my fault. I was forced to foreclose on my home and I had a pain clinic I went to and was receiving injections when allowed. They have me pain meds as well. A friend let me stay a short time with her in her apartment and a few weeks later Hurricane Sandy hit and it ruined her place. I was offered a job in Florida and had no choice but to try and work one more time. I went there and in two months, I fell asleep at the wheel and had another high speed crash into a car. I had found a pain clinic there and they lowlered my pain meds by a lot, but at least I had something to take the edge off. I never slept and couldn’t work anymore. I applied for disability and was denied, even though I had tendonitis in both my hands as well as carpel tunnel (I had surgery for both and they cut the nerve in my right thumb where all I feel is pins and needles, and I also have fibromyalgia, as well as arthritis in my whole spine now, and bipolar since 1985, have narcolepsy (didn’t know till the car accident), sleep apnea, upper back and neck disc herniations, scoliosis and had heart stents put in 2011. Meanwhile, I had 3 friends that got disability the first time for bipolar alone. I did get my disability 3 years later, but this is how corrupt put system is. I moved from Sourh Florida to near Orlando in 2016 and they cut my pain meds more. One pain doctor said “I don’t give pain meds to anyone without cancer”. I said if I hit you over the f*cken Head with a hammer, will that hurt more than cancer you moron and left. I moved back to NY this year, even though I was again offered a pain pump but they couldn’t do it for a month after my lease ran out and I HATED it there. I figured u would go back to my old pain doctor (Florida HAD the toughest laws on pain management in the country when I moved there), but to my surprise, NY now was now worse. My SAME doctor who had every single record of all my stuff offered me very little pain relief. I had a full lung biopsy 2 months ago, and they did something to cut the front of my lung and Bundy is taking responsibility. They first said it was my Gall Bladder. Then it wasn’t l, then it was, again it wasn’t. How does a John Hopkins, Harvard Thoracic Surgeon not be able to read a simple ultra sound? They sent me to an Surgeon for a Gall Bladder and the Surgeon said immediately, “it’s not your Gall Bladder” but to protect his own butt, sent memfor some 3 hour test. It was negative and he called to say go back to your Thoracic Surgeon. Now all these Doctoes are part of a HUGE netiwork on LI. I called the thoracic surgeon and his PA sad he’s a Thorasic surgeon and can’t read anything below the lungs. Now this is after I already was at a ER a week prior that said it’s yout Gall Bladder and then admitted me and the next am, said it’s not and said I should go home and see my Thoracic Surgeon. I saw him and that’s when he said Gall Bladder. So I now go to my pain doctor (connected to this network) and the doctor says, I see that you are still in a lot of pain, let me come y you to our pain psychiatrist who can help. He orecrined me a few days of very low dose pain meds for the most pain I have ever been in. I saw her two days later (I have not left my home and live alone with no friends or family at all nearby eceept for doctors appointment since my surgery in October. I saw this lady and she was all nice and I said I was ready to end it all and how can they actually be taking me off pain meds? She said “don’t worry, I have a pain med that will not only help you with your pain, but help your depresssion and your anxiety. I couldn’t get it for 4 days because it needed pre authorization, and when I did, I looked up what it was and it was for drug addicts and not for pain. I was crazy mad. I had s psychaiatrist appointment that I had to see for other meds and I brought the bottle. He couldn’t believe this and I already left TWO messages for this doctor that Wednesday and she didn’t call yet. He said he wanted to call and left a message on his phone right in front of me to call him back. She never did and I am supposed to see her today. If I do, I will do harm to her and am not that way. She never called me or him. WTF is wrong with these doctors. They make decisions based on what? And to not return calls in inexcusable. I will now either have to find a way to find illegal heroine for the first time in my life, or just kill myself, which is much easier. All because a doctor declared me a drug addict while I can hardly move because of pain. And I have NOWHERE to turn. The world has gone mad. I feel bad for so many. I am good with pain and I can’t tolerate this anymore. I can’t imagive how people who have not suffered a lot of pain and then get some bad pain manage these days. Sorry for the rant but it will be my last I’m sure.

I was offered a job in Florida and had no choice but to try and work one more time. I went there and in two months, I fell asleep at the wheel and had another high speed crash into a car. I had found a pain clinic there and they lowlered my pain meds by a lot, but at least I had something to take the edge off. I never slept and couldn’t work anymore. I applied for disability and was denied, even though I had tendonitis in both my hands as well as carpel tunnel (I had surgery for both and they cut the nerve in my right thumb where all I feel is pins and needles, and I also have fibromyalgia, as well as arthritis in my whole spine now, and bipolar since 1985, have narcolepsy (didn’t know till the car accident), sleep apnea, upper back and neck disc herniations, scoliosis and had heart stents put in 2011. Meanwhile, I had 3 friends that got disability the first time for bipolar alone. I did get my disability 3 years later, but this is how corrupt put system is. I moved from Sourh Florida to near Orlando in 2016 and they cut my pain meds more. One pain doctor said “I don’t give pain meds to anyone without cancer”. I said if I hit you over the f*cken Head with a hammer, will that hurt more than cancer you moron and left. I moved back to NY this year, even though I was again offered a pain pump but they couldn’t do it for a month after my lease ran out and I HATED it there. I figured u would go back to my old pain doctor (Florida HAD the toughest laws on pain management in the country when I moved there), but to my surprise, NY now was now worse. My SAME doctor who had every single record of all my stuff offered me very little pain relief. I had a full lung biopsy 2 months ago, and they did something to cut the front of my lung and Bundy is taking responsibility. They first said it was my Gall Bladder. Then it wasn’t l, then it was, again it wasn’t. How does a John Hopkins, Harvard Thoracic Surgeon not be able to read a simple ultra sound? They sent me to an Surgeon for a Gall Bladder and the Surgeon said immediately, “it’s not your Gall Bladder” but to protect his own butt, sent memfor some 3 hour test. It was negative and he called to say go back to your Thoracic Surgeon. Now all these Doctoes are part of a HUGE netiwork on LI. I called the thoracic surgeon and his PA sad he’s a Thorasic surgeon and can’t read anything below the lungs. Now this is after I already was at a ER a week prior that said it’s yout Gall Bladder and then admitted me and the next am, said it’s not and said I should go home and see my Thoracic Surgeon. I saw him and that’s when he said Gall Bladder. So I now go to my pain doctor (connected to this network) and the doctor says, I see that you are still in a lot of pain, let me come y you to our pain psychiatrist who can help. He orecrined me a few days of very low dose pain meds for the most pain I have ever been in. I saw her two days later (I have not left my home and live alone with no friends or family at all nearby eceept for doctors appointment since my surgery in October. I saw this lady and she was all nice and I said I was ready to end it all and how can they actually be taking me off pain meds? She said “don’t worry, I have a pain med that will not only help you with your pain, but help your depresssion and your anxiety. I couldn’t get it for 4 days because it needed pre authorization, and when I did, I looked up what it was and it was for drug addicts and not for pain. I was crazy mad. I had s psychaiatrist appointment that I had to see for other meds and I brought the bottle. He couldn’t believe this and I already left TWO messages for this doctor that Wednesday and she didn’t call yet. He said he wanted to call and left a message on his phone right in front of me to call him back. She never did and I am supposed to see her today. If I do, I will do harm to her and am not that way. She never called me or him. WTF is wrong with these doctors. They make decisions based on what? And to not return calls in inexcusable. I will now either have to find a way to find illegal heroine for the first time in my life, or just kill myself, which is much easier. All because a doctor declared me a drug addict while I can hardly move because of pain. And I have NOWHERE to turn. The world has gone mad. I feel bad for so many. I am good with pain and I can’t tolerate this anymore. I can’t imagive how people who have not suffered a lot of pain and then get some bad pain manage these days. Sorry for the rant but it will be my last I’m sure.

I will now either have to find a way to find illegal heroine for the first time in my life, or just kill myself, which is much easier. All because a doctor declared me a drug addict while I can hardly move because of pain. And I have NOWHERE to turn. The world has gone mad. I feel bad for so many.

I am a 57 year old diabled man who served in the ARMY in the early 1980’s and immediately after hurt my back and had 3 back surgeries before I was 30. I have had many more very painful problems and a triple fusion with 2 eight inch rods in 2009 which was a total failure. I have always been on and off pain meds in the past but never took them steadily, unless I was in dire pain. In 2000, I had a 70 MPH car accident and somehow survived and I saw a pain doctor in NY. He wanted to put a pain pump in me and I declined. I worked all this time that I described till 2009, and tired again till 2012 when I was in another car wreck which both so far we’re not my fault. I was forced to foreclose on my home and I had a pain clinic I went to and was receiving injections when allowed. They have me pain meds as well. A friend let me stay a short time with her in her apartment and a few weeks later Hurricane Sandy hit and it ruined her place. I was offered a job in Florida and had no choice but to try and work one more time. I went there and in two months, I fell asleep at the wheel and had another high speed crash into a car. I had found a pain clinic there and they lowlered my pain meds by a lot, but at least I had something to take the edge off. I never slept and couldn’t work anymore. I applied for disability and was denied, even though I had tendonitis in both my hands as well as carpel tunnel (I had surgery for both and they cut the nerve in my right thumb where all I feel is pins and needles, and I also have fibromyalgia, as well as arthritis in my whole spine now, and bipolar since 1985, have narcolepsy (didn’t know till the car accident), sleep apnea, upper back and neck disc herniations, scoliosis and had heart stents put in 2011. Meanwhile, I had 3 friends that got disability the first time for bipolar alone. I did get my disability 3 years later, but this is how corrupt put system is. I moved from Sourh Florida to near Orlando in 2016 and they cut my pain meds more. One pain doctor said “I don’t give pain meds to anyone without cancer”. I said if I hit you over the f*cken Head with a hammer, will that hurt more than cancer you moron and left. I moved back to NY this year, even though I was again offered a pain pump but they couldn’t do it for a month after my lease ran out and I HATED it there. I figured u would go back to my old pain doctor (Florida HAD the toughest laws on pain management in the country when I moved there), but to my surprise, NY now was now worse. My SAME doctor who had every single record of all my stuff offered me very little pain relief. I had a full lung biopsy 2 months ago, and they did something to cut the front of my lung and Bundy is taking responsibility. They first said it was my Gall Bladder. Then it wasn’t l, then it was, again it wasn’t. How does a John Hopkins, Harvard Thoracic Surgeon not be able to read a simple ultra sound? They sent me to an Surgeon for a Gall Bladder and the Surgeon said immediately, “it’s not your Gall Bladder” but to protect his own butt, sent memfor some 3 hour test. It was negative and he called to say go back to your Thoracic Surgeon. Now all these Doctoes are part of a HUGE netiwork on LI. I called the thoracic surgeon and his PA sad he’s a Thorasic surgeon and can’t read anything below the lungs. Now this is after I already was at a ER a week prior that said it’s yout Gall Bladder and then admitted me and the next am, said it’s not and said I should go home and see my Thoracic Surgeon. I saw him and that’s when he said Gall Bladder. So I now go to my pain doctor (connected to this network) and the doctor says, I see that you are still in a lot of pain, let me come y you to our pain psychiatrist who can help. He orecrined me a few days of very low dose pain meds for the most pain I have ever been in. I saw her two days later (I have not left my home and live alone with no friends or family at all nearby eceept for doctors appointment since my surgery in October. I saw this lady and she was all nice and I said I was ready to end it all and how can they actually be taking me off pain meds? She said “don’t worry, I have a pain med that will not only help you with your pain, but help your depresssion and your anxiety.

Dear Senator McCain. I am also a Vietnam Veteran. You were imprisoned for 7 years, stabbed in the groin, and you took regular beatings from the Vietnamese.

I totally agree with this. The medical community has had me labeled since 1988 and the medical community destroyed my life within minutes due to an incompetent nurse. Then I get labeled as a "drug seeker" and many other names. I currently have a doctor that stands up to the DEA. I am 64 years old and in chronic pain for 30 years. I don't know what will happen when he is gone. I do know that while the DEA is giving pain patients a hard time their friends in the CIA have to keep our troops in Afghanistan to protect the opium fields because 90% of the world's herion is supplied by Afghanistan. These corrupt jackasses could care less about us. Everyone in this country has a relative someware that has a pain problem yet our phoney government creates an opioid epidemic to screw chronic pain patients. Hitler just murdered his disabled people. Our US government is doing the same thing but they want us to do their heroin then commit suicide. Just a different way of getting rid of the disabled without having murder on their hands. I will be buried face down So they can all kiss my ass.

I'm a chronic pain patient and have been for several years, I have played by all the rules just because I know if I get my pain meds took away I will be out there on the street with all the others responsible for our drug problem in Arkansas looking for something to relieve the hurt. I have Major DDD and RA and can't take NSAIDs because it causes bad issues with my stomach. The Doctors that are playing by the rules need to be left alone and if you want to tackle the REAL DRUG PROBLEM get out there on our streets and get the dope dealers and meth cookers and all them bringing the real deadly drugs to our Nation!!!!!!!

I feel for all of you I am in the same boat now my doctor just died. I am 68 years old with polio paralyzed from the waist down since age 5. I was diagnosed with post polio syndrome at age 45 and put on hydrocodone for life because there is nothing that can be done to cure it. The doctors told me to take it regular and get it in my system and it would help the pain. I have followed there orders to the letter but they didn't tell me 63 years later I would be turned down by every doctor I have tried including the pain clinic in Monroe Louisiana. Every joint in my upper body is wore out from walking on crutches all my life but now I am in a wheelchair for the last 5 years , Its bad enough to be crippled for life and then be tossed out by every doctor because they are scared to write a script. One said he didn't want to get audited the other said he was afraid he would get sued. If these doctors had enough guts to stand up for there own rights this would not be happening. I have had chronic pain for the last 24 years and the hydrocodone is the only thing that has kept it under control. They will see all there doing is helping the black market. Hope something happens to help you all but I don't see it happening anytime soon. I cant even find a doctor who knows anything about polio here.

I had completed a nursing assistant course in July and was scheduled to take my exam October 20 2017. I walked out of the DMV Oct 17 and fell. Mind you I had been dealing with this pain on just Excedrin. No pain meds. Went to hospital, than Dr.My current physician would not see me thinking once again. I was seeking pain meds. I stay in bed, my head pounding, I am going lose my car as without extra income I can not pay it. Never move to Az.

I have chronic pain from herniated discs and damaged nerves in my cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. I am so tired of being at the mercy of doctors and pharmacists. I had a pharmacist say he couldn't fill my prescription because it was his "professional opinion " not to.

I suffer every day in pain and I live in Arkansas. I have been living for over 11 years with numerous health conditions that cause my chronic pain. I was on pain medication on and off for 11 years. Now, I can no longer find a doctor that will write me my medications that have given me a tolerable quality of life. Please rethink what laws you are passing.
