Why are u all arguing over this crap. Do people realize that anything u take or even do for pain is going to be addictive. I could do sitting ups everyday. If it helped chronic pain I would do them everyday. So I don't understand why they say that painkillers are addictive because if u are in chronic pain u have to have them everyday for the pain. Your damned if u do damned if u don't. When is the damn dea gonna realize that. They are keeping something that is really helpful with pain from us. That's not right. They want us to pay taxes but I can't do my work cause I can't get anything for pain. I'm am really tired of coming home from work and having to suffer in pain. This drug HAS A MEDICAL PURPOSE.

I think docs pick and choose who they give pain meds to

What I have wrong with me can't be fixed. I live in pain 24/7. The doctors turned me down for pain meds because they want to put rods in my back and I want let them. They said "live with it". Since my problem can't be fixed, why can't I have pain meds that would at least give me some relief. Why worry about becoming addicted if your going to live in pain the rest of your life.
Don't go to the pain (Dr. Lingreen) clinic if your dressed dirty. I saw them turn a person away because she was dirty and she had cash money in her hand.
Why did Lingreen leave eastern Ky? If he wants to fight drugs, why didn't he stay in the route coming straight out of Florida (pills) and the locals grow their cash crop (pot)? Something is not right.

I think the pain Med restrictions need to stop. Americans are hard working people that should not have to suffer in pain everyday. I think we need to join together and start a petition to take to the deas doorstep. Its a pill for godsake. Not crack. The dea has doctors so scared to give out pain meds that u can't get em even if u seriously need them. That's BS. And yes I agree that they need to be controlled but if someone is so stupid to take a whole bottle and od then they just need to go on and die anyway. I would rather a doc be in control of my health and not the law. The government is stepping in on something that they need to leave to doctors. That's just not right. We need to fight the government on this one and stand up for my right to have pain meds that really work.

Thanks everyone!!! BUT pills are just like anything else cigs,sex,pot,beer,food,and whatever else that we as ppl. either need or just want the Doctor should be the one who decides to Help Us not the dea nor the government should be telling the Doctor who or what he can do why dont they tell ppl how many packs of cigarettes they can buy or beer!!!ppl who needs Help cant get shi. But it seems like ppl.who dont need it gets it all sorry everyone but I need a doctor and a good one I have no insurance everything I do has to come out of my pocket I dont get help from no one!!!

Lingreen is a poor excuse for a doc. Also, I believe docs give the meds to the dope addicts and the ones who sell them. They seem to give them to the people who do not need them and I am sure they never miss an appointment.

I really like Dr Lingreen. I'm not a dope head and I don't sell drugs. He can tell if you are faking in a heartbeat. He helps people who are clean from drugs and are really in pain.

Not true.
Disability is hard to get. There are so many hoops to jump through. There are conditions that cause severe pain that don't show up any scan. My mother has fibromyalgia and is in pain every single day but can't get disability.
If they would come up with some way to test for and gauge pain it would solve a lot of problems!

There are those out there that go to the Dr because they are in pain and feel that there is a problem that needs to be corrected. When they first go, they can't even stomach pain killers but that is all they are given for the pain, so they have to force themselves to taket he pain medication just so they can sleep at night. Nothing gets better so they go back to the Dr over a two year span and continuously get told that they have a "pulled muscel" and the pain pills keep coming. Then when the person in pain finally gets fed up with the run around that EVERY DOCTOR IN FRANKFORT GIVES EVERYONE, he goes to a specialist that he had to fight to see because his normal Dr wouldn't refer him, and is told that he could have been paralized had he made the wrong movement due to three slipped and cracked disks in his neck. He finally has surgery, takes the remainder of his pain meds, and then they cut him off. Suddenly he realizes, he's addicted. THAT is how the majoirty of these addictions to pain killers start in this damn town. Our Dr's are for SHIT! I do a better job diagnosing myself than these so called physcians do. It's time the Doctors are held accountable for THEIR actions just like the drug addicts are.
That is exactly what happened to me. back ten or so years ago. i took pain meds for several years because that is what my Dr's were telling me. i couldnt stand them, they made me sick at my stomach. yet, because my dr. kept telling me that it was only a pulled muscle, i continued taking them. i was in my early 20's and had no clue how the medical business worked. i just assumed that my dr. knew better. i finally became educated on how things worked and saw a specialist. i had 2 ruptured disks and had to have surgery. i spent 3 years getting the run around and being stuffed with pills. didnt realize what had happened to me until after the surgery and when i was truly beginning to heal. i tried to stop taking the meds and quickly realized how bad off i was. i have been to rahab twice now. i do my damned best to stay clean but the crave is always there. i am only so strong and can only fight the crave for so long. it has affected my mind, body, and soul. the only way i can describe the addiction to someone hwo doesnt know what it is like, is pills to me are just as much a nessecity food and water. without it i simply can't function. i have lost everything that i ever worked for. My wife of 15 years finally couldnt take it anymore and i lost her. She was my life. ive loved her for 20 years and don't think i will ever stop. yet she is gone. ive lost everything. don't even have the desire to wake up from one day to the next anymore. i won't blame everyone else in this world for what has happened. But i will say, this all got started simply because i listened to my dr. who i assumed knew better than i did.

I was injured in the Army (spinal injury) and was sent from my Capital Family doctors to Dr. Lingreen to be my pain management doctor. I was getting all my meds from the VA but due to having to drive and then wait to see the doctors I decided to go with my private insurance. I just found out the Dr. Lingreen is not in the Humana network and my last visit which lasted maybe 20 minutes was over $500.00 and billed to me because he isn't in the network. I guess I'll go back to the VA to get my meds now. I just hate having to waste my sick time driving to the clinic.
