i have been in one a few times after getting in a serious accident and the some of the people in there have no shame that they go to other doctors and sit there and talk about what they do with the medicine while they are drooling on themselves that is the problem they make it bad for people that really need it and then you are constantly trying to find a doctor cause the doctors do things wrong then their closed and here goes the process all over again all because they are making all that money!!!! when you dont need it and you have a problem TRY REHAB!!!!

So many of the posts I have read here are not understanding the entire problem and the differences between someone who has a real need for medication and couldn't possible live without medication for pain, neuropathy, blood pressure, and more. My husband had acar accident, he fell asleep driving home from the hospital after working 12 hours a day all week long. It was a Friday night and his doctor purswaded him to go to a 8 pm appt to see if he had a blood clot in his leg. He is diabetic and had cellulitis with 3rd degree burns from inside when his fever went to 105 degrees - this was the year before. so, coming home and finding he had No blood clot, he fell asleep with the cruise control set at 60mph and his car went off the road and hit a tree head on. The car went up on its end and crushed the top so he was pinned inside. the top had to be removed to get him out. He had over 19 broken bones, half of his left lung collasped from internal bleeding. He has lost all his teeth. He spent 3 months in a hospital and rehab clinic and was sent home unable to walk at all. we lived in a 2 story house and my 14 year old son and I had to get him upstairs alone. He spent the next 18 months learned to walk. He had broken both legs, shattered his pelvis, 4 ribs, right arm, lost most of his left hand, hit his eye so hard he cracked the skull above the eyebrow. but, he went back to work. He made it to work for the next year until his hip bone where it connects to the leg became sqaured off - like putting a round peg in a square hole or vice versa - He has been in a great deal of pain throughout and now is only able to get off the sofa because of his pain meds. He saw pretty real soctors and several surgeeons during his recovery. A person that is trying to live after going through an ordeal such as this needs pain meds and other meds to control the diabetes. He just had surgery to remove an infected piece of bone from his right foot. There are a lot of people out there with real pain issues and need to be able to get help. If some of the people here had their way, no doctor would be able to help with real problems. He has had a very difficult time exactly for that reason. we had to move and to a different state - he has spent over a year finding a doctor who wasn't afraid to help him.

Before making accusations and/or declarations as to how things are or should be, do some research and see what the life of someone like this is like and would be without any pain medication...

the car accident and diabetes are recent problems for him. he also has had 3 back surgeries, lost over half the blood from his body when he tore his esophagaus, was pronounced dead when his stomach burst and he was throwing up blood.

there are exceptions to everything...

please forgive my typos - I apologize. I have problems with numbness in my hands from my back/neck problems... but I have nowhere close to the pain issues my husband has... I do wake up with my back hurting so bad I am crying. I do not have any health insurance tho' so I can not see any doctor.

Everyone out there who is suffering from chronic out. Two women from Vidor whose sons were obviously not suffering from any sort of debilitating pain managed to get their hands on some pain meds...i.e. hydrocodone, soma, and xanax, and overdosed. I am sure that the pain clinic doctors "forced the pills down their throats" note sarcasm, and now they are lobbying for all pain management clinics in Houston to be shut down. While their loss is traumatic to them, Im sure, the rest of the Houston area does not need to be punished for the actions of two irresponsiple twenty something men who probably mixed the medication with alcohol. Now what we have going on is an unfair "witch hunt" for qualified pain management doctors. Google the last name Skorpenske and Conroe and you can read about an 80 year old mother suing a pain management doctor for the death of her 50 something year old son for overdosing on hydrocodone. What she failed to mention is that he was also IVing methadone at the same time. She has now been awarded a 10 million dollar settlement that the doctor most likely will not be able to pay. This is a WASTE of taxpayers money and a sham to boot. These doctors need to be left one forces people to take these prescription drugs. I was hit by a drunk driver resulting in several herniated discs...perhaps these two women in question should campaign against alcohol abuse instead of hunting down doctors that are just trying to help people. Just my humble opinion.

That b**ch Esther Scarborough and the senators she went crying to when her son died have now suceeded in closing my clinic that required MRIs bloodwork, and phys therapy. Guess what, I didnt bring her son back, but it did cause much stress to many people that do not deserve it.

I know what you are talking about I have a blood disorder that has caused me many blood clots and has made my life nothing but pain..Every day 24/7 and with out my coumadin to thin my blood or my norco for pain I would be fucked...People with out pain are far too eager to judge and point the finger at..i for one agree with you I would like to see these assholes in pain every day...And no pain meds to help them, and all it does is help you live a normal life that's it! Cause when you are in as much pain as I am or he is you don’t get high! It just stops the pain that’s all..But that’s all we need...So think before you judge!

If you were refering to me daphne get a grip stupid I wasn't rambling on and for your information wasn't on anything at the time. I hadn't seen my doctor for a month, I play it smart anddetox two or three months out of the year. If you look reaql close that "sentence" you see is actually a paragraph. carpal tunnel and some bad discs in my neck make it hard for me to type. The person needed more than just a sentence to help them. I think you are the one that was messed up as a soup sandwich. you sound like one of the people out there who go to these dr.s just to get high and don't really need the meds. I worked for 30 years with a bad back and 15 suffering from chronic gout with out going to a doctor for monthly prescriptions, I toughed it out until I had no other recourse but the meds. And now that I am on them I take them responsibly and make sure I am in control of the meds not the other way around.

My mom has severe back pain from two failed back surgeries and Adult Onset Scoliosis.
She needs Methadone (10 mg or more). Who can prescribe Methadone in the north Houston area?
She also developed Adult Onset Scoliosis a few years ago. It has twisted her back forward and to one side. It restricts her breathing (because leaning forward all the time compresses her lungs). She is so crippled from the pain. I am now her full time care giver.
Thank you so much for your help.
