  • Do you have any idea what kind of horrors this narrative you are pushing has and continues to cause??
    Are you aware that since crackdown policies on opioid prescriptions have been enacted, heroine deaths have risen by 45%??
    You are forcing desperate and broken people out of a medically controlled and regulated situation and forcing them to either become criminals or kill themselves.
    How many more lives have to be lost and or destroyed before this will be acknowledged????

  • https://www.weightandwellness.com/resources/articles-and-videos/sugar-aches/
    SUGAR INFLAMES LOW BLOOD CIRCULATION AREAS IMMEDIATELY, THATS YOUR SPINE!

  • If you have extra pain meds, make sure you keep it because it’s easier to die these days than to get a script for opiates. This country has gone full circle when it comes to treating pain. Horrible.

  • I’m sorry I’m no doctor… But I live with chronic pain for an awful long time. And so long that I actually requested death with dignity. On more than one occasion to my doctor before she finally gave in and gave me some pain relief. the only thing that stopped this pain opioid use. And I cut mine into quarter pieces and halfs. I’ve never had a problem with this medication but others seem to do… But I’m sorry if you ingest alcohol caffeine sugar or any of those substances you’re eating an abusive substance so oh well we see things differently and I see doctors as the enemy….. and I know you’re a doctor… But many doctors have been wrong before. I just think you’re another Doctor Who wants to take a jab at the chronic pain patient here

    To all the Doctors with your high medical degrees can fuck off with me… I know what my body needs to keep going and if you cut me down from my medication I can’t function and I’m bedbound. Sometimes I wish the doctors would know what it’s like. Then I think times would change

  • disassociating cancer “pain” and long-term Pain really boggles me. The pain doesn’t go away and it consumes your life. But, because physicians start chemotherapy drugs that deteriorate the patient with cancer causes pain; hence it’s ok to use opioids then. I would never discredit cancer, but to discredit documented reasonable biomechanical discrepancy is ignorance…

  • Ahhhhhhh cooooooon queeeeeee nooooooooo saaaaaaabeeeeeeeessssssss deeeeeeee queeeeeeee teeeeee aaaaaguuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaaantaaaaaaaaaas laaaaaaaaaa riiiiiiiiiiisaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • You forgot the skyrocketing suicide rates among real patients in horrible pain who cannot get help anymore. I’ve had 5 back surgeries and never got addicted to my meds and robbed a liquor store. For 2 years I had loose hardware in my back and the doctor had to remove metal shavings in my back when he recently removed it. For those 2 years I begged for help and the loose hardware and metal shavings didn’t show up on the x rays and mri. Nobody would help me with the horrible pain. It was so bad I began planning my suicide because I couldn’t deal with it anymore. Finally a doctor agreed to open my back up and rework things and that’s when he found the hardware loose and metal shavings. THEN they understood how much pain I had been in!! After surgery I got 2 bad EKG readings and my blood pressure kept plummeting. I was on the verge of cardiac arrest at 35 years old. The heart doctor at hospital concluded that I had been living in so much pain and stress for so long that my heart was simply ready to give out. He called it literal “ broken heart”. Fortunately as they got my pain under control and I’ve recovered some the past month my heart has returned to normal with no problem.

    Moral of the story is the “ opioid crisis” nearly killed me!!

  • Your wrong chronic pain has not been in the news it has been ignored time and time again how old are these people are they chronic pain patients…this is the narrative nothing to do with chronic pain patients. Whet are your numbers on people dying from chronic pain or suicide because of untreated pain..lets panic and fear monger..then trade one crisis for another..legitimate pain patients that responsibly take these meds

  • Before we start excuse the English I am French speaking living in Texas
    Yeah
    go tell that to my pain management doctor when after I received 4 shut
    of something in my spine. The last shut cyatic pain started to be
    excruciating also head hake that would not stop. I try to call Dr Limm
    my pain management over 20 time leaving message no answer no response.
    Blood pressure push up to 200 and the pain event worst. At the beginning
    he told me haa we will inject you to see what nerve and then we will
    kill them that should take care of the pain. I am missing 6 disc in the
    lower back and they told me they are gone… no way they will come back
    and Limm agreed to it after reading MRI and doc note. Anyway he never
    got back with me until 2 month later I receive a letter with 4
    appointment
    with code on it that I did not knew what it meant…
    Hey finely he will kill the nerve. So little I knew. the day of the
    first appointment I get to is office and sit 00 half a hour. then call
    me and say I have to pay $1400.00 on the spot and I ask why? I have
    great insurance because at my age 62 I am still working I try at least
    and do not wont to collect social. The nurse tell me is for your
    deductible and the shut what shuts I ask. Limm told me he once will
    inject to find if it would work and then kill the nerve. I try to call
    and leave message they are all save and record in my phone. Scare to
    erase the proof of my despair. I tell her what happen and tell her it
    almost sent me to the ICU once again. 2 month before that I spend bone
    week in ICU for blood pressure over 275. I cannot have that anymore it
    does not work did not stop any pain at all and cause me more pain
    excruciating headache and problem with blood pressure.

    Ho she
    said lets me go ask him… she come back and whisper to me… The
    doctor said he cannot do nothing for you then just go back to your
    regular doctor… Yeah I was not good to him anymore because I did not
    accepted to be with the 15 peoples in the back waiting for these shut
    that he do each day… that is way to manage pain make $21000.00 a day 3
    days a week.
    H 4 never had any attention to burn the nerve he just
    wanted a cow to milk for money. That what you created and in the mid
    time I feel so lost ready to give up. and still suffer like crazy with
    no hope to stop it. no life at all I sit with a heating pad seeing my
    house getting filt of trash. I just try to clean my kitchen It took me
    26 hours and still not finish was working 5 minutes and resting 20 and
    taking 4 Ibuprofen revere hours or so. Social none. I just go work come
    back and sit pay child support and start over. You know one thing!!!!
    At least went I add pain medication I was not suffering and I had a sort
    of life but idiot like you who do not know nothing about pain except
    maybe once they had a paper cut on there finger want to make man kind
    suffer and be abuse by other man calling them self pain management
    DOCTOR Yeah I lost everything having to sell everything I own car gone.
    All I have left is a job and I cant barely make it anymore. Let me dye
    of overdose if it happen at least I will stop suffering. You are no
    God! Why you want me to suffer that much? I don’t event know you
