Funny how you see junkies all day high as hell from pain pills but then someone in pain is given Motrin 800. A family member of mine is suffering from brain, lung, and skin cancer and is not receiving pain medication unless he is actually hospitalized. When he is at home he is given nothing to take.
If they are offering you Oxycotin those are strong, how would they not help you?
It is unethical to NOT give a cancer patient with metastasis pain medication. They are most likely afraid that if your family member takes narcotics, that they will stop breathing especially with his lung CA. I would be livid!

What the hell is with the STFU's? If you don't wanna hear it(read it obviously-feel the need to clarify for all you smart asses), DON'T!!! Those of you that insist on going into various topics that you aren't interested in or have a decent opinion with some sort of basis, why bother? To me, it sounds like a waste of everyone's time bc believe it or not, people do read this forum for insight and an occasional heated debate. Maybe you guys should start your own conversation so each of you can add your big people words w the beautiful *'s and STFU's. And yea, because we are all druggies, we have the time to type this damn much, at least we make a point. Good day!

Chris, it is a difficult road that you will have to travel. Things will not be getting better anytime soon. I understand. Physicians(even PM drs) feel alittle more comfortable giving a longer acting med that has a formulation that deters abuse, such as oxycontin. Shorter acting medications, at least all the ones I'm familiar with, are all produced in a way that make them convenient for abusers. Yes, there are a number of alternatives to pills, all with harsh side effects. To read the information from pamphlets, textbooks, newspapers and posters on drs office walls makes these alternatives sound like complete life savers. For some, maybe they are but why such an invasive and very risky procedure when medication allows you to live your life so well? It wasn't a hard decision for me either. Let's see...doc says: easy fix, I'm only gonna cut a 6" incision along your spine and place 10 tiny little screws to hold these tiny little metal hinges to 5 of your vertabrae and slip this 'artificial cartlidge' in and you'll only be in the hospital for 4-6 days, only the 1st 12-18hrs laying completely still on your back, then you can sit up, in about 8-12 weeks we will work you up to being able to do your grocery shopping all by yourself again. Doctors are very scared now to prescribe pain meds but you will be able to find a few that'll help their patients with their needs. My email is: couragetochange131@yahoo.com. if I can help I will certainly try.

I am livid. It's sad to watch anyone go through it and it is even worse when it is someone you love.

. That is hard for me to believe. That a family member is only given motrin for pain. My sisterinlaw just passed away with cancer and hospis kept her very comfortable at home. There must be a problem with someone taking the meds or not being used to what they were supposed to do

I have been on pain meds my entire life. I was classified disabled at the age of 4, from something I was born with. I would rather not describe my issues as they are personal to me.
For the last 32 years, I have worked a meaningful job. I did NOT want to be classified as DISABLED because I am very ABLE to do many other things like computer work. I got a scholarship to Marshall University on the basis of academics (obviously I can't play football).
I have raised my family, etc, but as time has passed I am unable to work now. I'm age 47. My parents were told when I was younger that I lived past my prime. The were told when I was born that I would NOT live past the age of 4 because of my disability. I am not one to let people tell me what I can and cant do. So at age 15 I started working, and I have worked for the last 32 years. I am now on pension with my job, and getting a supplemental of social security disability each month.
My question is this. I have lived out of state for the last 15 years and had a primary physician who prescibed all my meds. Now that I have moved back to WV, I am having a real problem finding a doctor who will prescribe pain meds to me. They want to put me on OXYCONTIN 80mg. I don't want to change what I'm on. I have been on the same meds for over 15 years and haven't had to up my meds at all.
Are there any doctors that will treat me like a human being and not like a drug dealer? If so, names would be great. I'm looking for a NORMAL primary physcian. Either family or internal medicine.
My problem is this. Just because we have a MAJOR EPIDEMIC of people selling, dying, and using pain pills ....THIS SHOULD NOT BE MY PROBLEM! I am NOT a CRIMINAL! I've never been convicted of a crime! I just want the same MEDS i was able to get in Minnesota here in West Virginia.
I'm currently trying to find a primary Dr. in Minnesota to help me with my medication, narcotic and not, because the one good Dr. I had changed jobs. Everyone is treating me like a junkie piece of shit. I have been content with what I take, they have my records, and wouldn't even let me tapper down, just made me go straight into withdrawal. I'm asking for more than myself.

physicians have patterns of practice for treating any condition, including chronic pain. Most reasonable physicians do not give large amounts of short-acting narcotic to treat chronic pain, because it does not make sense to do this physiologically. People who are addicted to medications as you seem to be use the "I know what my body needs" argument - and you are right, your body needs it because you are physiologically addicted to what I'm guessing is a quick effect from oral dilaudid? Only a guess. But I am not comfortable prescribing pain meds in the way I think you're getting at, not because of trafficking, but because of unhealthy and inappropriate use of meds... and trafficking.

By saying I know what my body needs I only meant it in the sense that I'm the only one in this body and it isn't right to assume that what works for someone works for everyone. You can have any opinion you want. It's just disheartening to know that there's something helpful for many people and other people messed it all up. And Florida did too. But the "bad guys" aren't the ones who have to suffer. If you're in constant pain and then think of all the others in the same undertreated/untreated boat as you, it's extremely depressing.

You will have to go to the pain clinic at CHH. Dr Ozturk or Memon will see you. The primary Cares in this area will no longer prescribe pain meds. It sucks but these docs are really good!

1st of all I switched family doctors , because of miles to my original after I moved , but when I started a new family doctor , I have been there for over 4 months now and iv never seen my doctor she akwYs send a nurse practioners in to see me they have never sent for any of my MRI,s nerve
conduction test or any of my previouse records and all they have done is put me on meds that iv never had any results with , what do I do because my sister goes to the same doctor I do and to be honest she over medicated my sister with oxy15,s clonapan 20,s lyrican neurotin and gives her anywhere from 120 n 90 of each by no means would I wNt this much medicine but why won't she give me meds like that instead of putting me on all this non narcotic bull that don't work ??

The laws in WV have changed because of prescription drug abuse. I believe the drs are scared to prescribe because certain narcotics are being monitored closely. You should be able to find changes about narcotics dispensing laws online. Best of luck to you.

You are right and to add to what u said..... Doctors are only allowed to prescribe a certain % of their patients narcotics. If the doctor goes over that % they are subject to audits and jail :(

Best way to find a doctor to prescribe pain meds is to find one fresh out of school or new practice.
