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 have served my country overseas, Army. I have served my country at home (firefighter). I raise three children alone. I pay taxes and help others at every chance. I have never been in law trouble. I am a good citizen. Just because there is only one medication that the good lord gave us, that works on my individual pain, and allows me to continue to live a NORMAL LIFE, that does not make me an addict or seeker. 2% of the the people abuse it, yes. For the love of GOD STOP HURTING ALL US OTHER 98%, and look at us as less than anyone. Just like you neeeeeed your starbucks in the morning to operate NORMALLY is yhe exact same as us needing a med so we can as well. All you hypocrites can hopefully expierience it for a week, not longer because I dont wish it on nobody to live witb the cronic, debilitating pain that I do EVERYDAY. This country is supposed to to FREE!! But are we?? Get out of my doctors and my treatment. What is good for one might not be good for anyone else. Im a grown*****man and I, and I ALONE KNOWS WHAT WORKS FOR ME.

It has become disgraceful in this country that Drs are not allowed to decide what is good for their patient and yet the horrific long nights of sitting up in pain you begin to wonder what nightmare of a country you live in with no compassion. It is not the elderly or chronic pain patients breaking the law but a younger generation using for fun. But we are to protect them from themselves and screw the real patients. This is disgraceful and wrong. And now to pass recreational weed. I'm a child of the 70's and never meet a pothead that had any ambition to get off their couch or to even get up in the morning without a smoke. Medical marajuana I can see but we already have a generation with no social skills or ambitions outside of video games lets and weed to it and have nothing but young lumps.

I have been dealing with devastating pain in the brain and entire body for over 15 years. My doctor retired and i was assigned a new Dr. fresh out of medical school. I had been on very high does of Methadone. Managed by my long time Dr. When she first saw me over a year ago, she said i was crazy and gave me threw a piece of paper with the # of the nearest Addicts House. Since that first meeting she has reduced my pain meds. from 12 10 mg a day down to 3 10 mg day. I have told her i can not live in state of agony. I have asked her if she has even looked at my file and she told me NO she had not. I have had 5 TBI'S. Crushed the left side of the brain. Several operations on the spine, brain, head. I have tried to go to other Drs. as well as pain clinics. Due to the file that she needs to send to the other Drs. They have refused to see me.

Please restore our freedom of how our pain is treated. Abolish the new dea regulations on opioids the false war. These new dea regulations were put in place by the Obama administration and should be done away with as well as all the other executive orders he signed. Opioids are the safest pain relief I have been treated with. It's hard to find things that work, so when we do don't get rid of it with a lie.

My doctor said they would no longer write my prescriptions because a drug test had come back with NORCO and this doctor is the one who prescribed it! I’ve been prescribed NORCO many times over the years but it was the first time with this doctor and apparently they did not notate it in my file and argued and said they did not prescribe it. Even after I took a picture of my pill bottle showing the prescribing doctor they won’t return my calls.

I am in pain from several procedures to repair rotator-cuff's that have only caused more pain. I was on pain meds for 12 years due to the fact my injuries can not be improved, then then my PCP became scared and stopped my meds...life has been hell without pain management ! I took my meds perfect 100 percent. I was only required to make a visit co-pay every 90 days. I am now bed bound, depressed and at the end of my life. Thanks DEA for destroying my life. If I were going to over dose, now would be the time...not during the 12 years of perfect management. These new drug clinic's are where you will find the problems, not traditional PCP practice ! " THE DUMB LEADING THE DUMBEST" IT'S MY DAM BODY ! DEA, HEAR ME -LIKE I SAID, I'M AT THE END OF MY LIFE ! AND THANKS FOR NOTHING ! I HATE YOU SO MUCH, YOU MAKE ME SICK ! YES YOU ! OK-CRYING IN PAIN AND NO SLEEP DUE TO PAIN...

It's so wrong that people who suffer chronic pain conditions like myself are suffering because of maybe drug users who abuse drugs not for painful conditions. Pls help keep us with painful conditions safe, with dignity and pain controlled so we can live decent lives for ourselves and our families.

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 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 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?

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 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 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 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.
