They just did that. That's why I questioned others about them. Thank you so much for your true responds. Suggestions?

What is a "true" pain patient? I'm in constant pain every day of my life. Would that make me a "true" pain patient?

Yes if you aren't a junkie they are. If you want pain management they will do just that, but if you go in and say that the modalities and mess aren't working them they will slap put u on Percocet and morphine or Dilaudid, which is way too much pain medicine for anybody who isn't dying.
You have no clue about what you're talking about. I suffer from severe chronic pain due to osteoarthritis (in all parts of my body). I am advanced age but not "dying". I happen to see a specialist who has deemed that strong pain meds are an appropriate treatment.

There are all kinds of legitimate patients who need varying degrees of pain treatment- some more so than others. But to say pain meds are only for people "dying" is ridiculous and badly misinformed!

That kind of out-dated thinking thankfully has been replaced in the medical profession with a more caring and patient-by-patient approach. Yes, there are drug seekers, but most ER's now will not give out pain meds, except maybe a couple days worth. They know the "regulars" and will not give them anything.

Proper pain treatment in many cases involves pain medications (as well as other approaches). Only your doctor can determine that: not someone on Topix...

OTC pain meds and NSAIDs are plenty strong enough for anyone. Prescription pain killers aren't any better at treating the pain. The people taking them just think they are because they're high all the time. Pain clinics are for people who want to get high. Opiate pain killers make you less tolerant to pain which means you'll just hurt worse and worse and end up taking more and more drugs.

You're a bigger idiot than I thought! OTC meds are useless against severe chronic pain! And no, I quit "getting high" a long time ago. After a patient has taken them for a couple of weeks the "high" feeling is gone. So don't try this as a lame excuse.

Until you've been there I suggest you STFU!

After having my back broken, I do live with severe chronic pain and always will. Ibuprofen is as effective as anything else for the pain. It certainly doesn't make the pain completely go away. The goal should be to make it bearable. There's nothing wrong with living in pain, it's called not being a pansy. Your reasoning is that of an addict. Something most people don't know is that for any prescription drug to be approved it only has to be more effective than nothing at all, a placebo.

People have different pain levels so the same meds won't work for everyone! I see nothing wrong with a person whom is in real pain taking pain meds given by the dr if taken properly! Some people can have a broken back and handle the pain with ibuprofen but congrats to you!

If this person really had their "back broken" they wouldn't be satisfied with OTC. This is more BS from an idiot who thinks anyone who takes pain med is an "addict". I'm not a "pansy" by the way but you are a liar and an idiot. I guess if someone is badly mangled in a car wreck and in the hospital for a week they're a "pansy" for being on pain meds?

People can claim anything on Topix (I've seen the "I'm a millionaire" and "live in a big house" posts) so just b/c you claim something doesn't mean squat. I'm honest enough to admit my body is wracked with a degenerative condition and is very painful.

Quit trolling and go to a thread where your IQ level is appreciated- like the ones where people are labeled all kinds of names. That's more your speed!

I happen to know who the bridge salesman is and he never lies about anything. It might just be his opinion but he believes what he says and he really has broke his back. Some days he can't even walk cause of the pain but won't consider prescription pain killers cause he believes they lead to more problems. I ain't saying I totally agree but he is one of few people these days that isn't a hypocrite. He don't have many friends cause he's brutally honest and most people can't take that but I respect it. He's actually a very smart person and I know when I get advice from him he's not just telling me what I want to hear.

He is being more than "brutally honest". He's saying anyone who uses (as prescribed by a doctor) pain meds is a "pansy".

If he doesn't want to use them, that's his choice & I couldn't care less. But to attack others as "drug seekers", addicts or "pansy" is not only moronic but childish.

I am not an addict. I take my meds as directed which is why my doctor continues to prescribe them (for years now). If I thought surgery would help I might go that route but it's very iffy.

He says "there is nothing wrong with living with pain". Well, I have pain even with my medications, but w/o them it would be intolerable.

I can see why he doesn't have many friends as you say. Anyone who makes accusations and broad statements like that isn't likely to have very friends. And I'd bet he isn't too popular even with his family.

There is a HUGE difference in being rude & callous and being honest when asked your opinion.

There are petitions to stop the gov war on meds and stop living with the cruelty our gov has put upon us. There also are advocacy groups fighting for pain patients rights. Sign the petitions and join these groups to stop the needles suffering.
