I am in true need of pain pills and because idiots can't control themselves doctors look at me like a junky if i tell them i want them. Or they are afraid of getting in trouble for writing them.
thanks to all the people who can't be responsable and control themselves.
So I just have to suffer.

You're not alone, as many people are feeling the effects of Law enforcement control. I can understand them writing a person a ticket or arresting someone for breaking the law, but when they start to control how a Doctor does his business they are overstepping their authority. They end up doing more harm then good. Doctors in this area are scared to death of getting into trouble for helping to relieve their patients. It has got to the point that even visiting a doctor for pain is a waste of time. Law enforcement has done so much damage people who should be getting treatment from a Doctor are using street drugs. Then they act to be all torn up because so any are overdosing. It is because of them. If they were under a Doctors orders and getting treated correctly they wouldn't be buying drugs they normally wouldn't use. A good example is a patient who could easily get by on hydrocodone, but because he can't find them that day ends up buying oxycodone. People are so worried about who is to blame the the problem never gets dealt with. Addicts are partially to blame, but so is Law enforcement.

Find a doctor and stay with him. Once he/she gets to know you it shouldn't be such a problem for you to get pain management. Just know that if you take them too long your body will become dependent upon them and you will suffer withdrawal if you suddenly stop them, the same way someone who misuses them does.

Drug laws hurt the honest person worse than the Pill head. the pill head will get his fix from some where. or make it there self.
you might want to check Into making you some wine or something stronger for the times you can't get pain medication.
myself. I have worked all my live. after a bad car accident that wasn't my fault I had to start taking something. I can't take any over the counter Medication except Tylenol. I have worked all my life and one way or the other I am not going to hurt because of the drug mess in this Country. there many different ways to stop pain. research your options and learn what what and how to do It. now when I go to the Doctor and they want to cut be off or back. that Is ok. If they won't let me do It Legal and what Is right they can keep there medication. think and plan ahead.

"there many different ways to stop pain. research your options and learn what what and how to do It."

That's just it though--there isn't many different ways to stop pain. I have Fibromyalgia, Degenerative Disc Disease, Stenosis, bone spurs on my vertebrate...
I have researched Fibro thouroughly and have done everything suggested, all to no avail. I take an anti-inflammatory daily, I use muscle creams, a heating pad, soak in a tub of hot water, get exercise, see a chiropractor...nothing helps. There are some days (like this rainy day) when I could really benefit from pain meds. The pain is affecting my quality of life--which in turn affects my family's quality of life because some days I can't do the things with them that I'd like to do. For instance, we had planned an outing in the mountains on the 4-wheeler Saturday. I over-did it Friday when I was outside playing with my son and I was in so much pain that evening and Saturday morning that I couldn't go.
I sure as hell can't afford to pay 8-10 bucks a pill to buy a few from a dealer. I might sound like a 2 year old crying, "That's not fair!", but my doctor won't write narcotic scripts and it ISN'T fair to me and others like me that really do need pain pills from time to time because of all the abusers around here. I think doctors can tell the difference between those who are legit and those who are scamming them. After all, my doctor took a bunch of x-rays and they back up everything I told her--yet she won't prescribe anything for me. That's bullshit! She did refer me to a pain clinic, but *IF* I'm accepted, it will be August before I can be seen. I might not even get accepted because I don't have an MRI. She ordered one for me, but my insurance denied it and I sure as hell can't pay for one out of my own pocket. Again...bullshit!
Don't these doctors realize that it is THEM that cause people like myself to seek out a dealer? I've been jumping through hoops for well over a year trying to get some help, but I haven't been able to get any.
I don't expect to live a pain-free life; I'm realistic enough to know that that will never happen. But I don't think expecting my doctor to do all in her power to see that I get the help I need is too much to ask. Apparently, though, it is.
Anyway, sorry if I've rambled on too much. It's just that this whole situation really pisses me off.

Aside from legitimate medical concerns, diseases or illnesses such as PopZ mentioned for instance, I can suggest one thing that can really affect pain issues in many ways : Weight. When it comes to chronic back pain or lower extremity pain such as legs and stuff, weight can really affect those areas negatively. Weight loss can affect them positively of course. Pain pills are not always the exclusive answer to everything ( mind you, I'm referring to non -
disease issues ) and there are others things one can do to stave off
pain problems.

Guys this shit is felt all over the state. I suffer so bad that i cant move much anymore. I fell 150 ft into concrete and broke most bones in my body 15 yrs. ago. The pain is unreal and for the first time in 15 yrs. I cant get treated regardless of the thousands of medical records i have or the MRIs of neck shoulders and back. it is time to stand up it only hurts us addicts still go out of state or to methadone or suboxone clinics. I got tired of this and tried to get relief at a methodone clinic but guess what they wont treat opain patients only addicts. that is messed up addicts killed it for us but they dont have to suffer,these new laws are descriminating against pain patients and im writing letters to feds about the problems as well as our governor and stumbo, I have seen several people commit suicide because of to much pain to be worth living and i feel the same way, i dont know how much longer i can take it i sleep 2 hours a week. i feel that they want to put the blame on addicts and hold them accountable but our state governor should be held accountable as well. they have as much to do with death of pain patients because of there actions to not allow treatment they should be charged with the deaths. they would charge us if we talked someone in to killing themselves it should go both ways. If we want this to quit we have to unite and fight back for us and our doctors

All of you need to get in w/Pain Mgmt. Go to the family clinic at PMC or your family dr, and they will send a referral to Pain mgmt, and if they accept you...then you WILL get help! The pain mgmt at PMC is good, but there's lots of patients. I think they are so many due to all these other dr's that's either left, or afraid to write! But as far as having peace of mind knowing you're not going to have to deal w/a dr splitting and leaving you cold turkey, you have it there. The dr's are Dr. Ratliff and Dr. Coughtry. Try to get a referral to get in there! Hope you get help!

A certain doctor at Shelby Valley clinic writes for known drug dealers. She has no confidentiality and will talk about your medical issues to your family. This is completely unethical and I am sure the medical board would frown upon it. If you see this physician then chances are you will be gossiped about.

Several people here have stated comments about " Dr.s being fearful of Law Enforcement.." and therefore not willing to prescribe pain meds. That sounds like some BS to me though. If someone has a valid, legitimate pain issue that requires medication then NO physician should be afraid to prescribe them such. All a Dr. has to do is verify the ailment ( via MRIs, exams, existing documentations, etc.) and maybe run a background check on the patient to insure no past drug-related issues, arrests, etc. and then just keep the proper, up-to-date records of their approach to the pain management in each individual situation. If this is done properly, in this manner, then there's no reason for any Dr. to be afraid to prescribe pain meds.
you know just how to obtain the dope huh legend, wonder how many dr.'s you see every month??

Oh I forgot jr., you like cocaine and you can't have that prescribed can you! lol, you're nothing but another dopehead trying to sound like someone who's clean when in all reality your way of thinking is that of an addict. I agree that what you originally stated was just clear and rational thinking, but I don't agree with your juvenile way of attacking those who dis-agree with you! Just look at the poll and it shows what topix thinks of you, not as a whole, you do have a couple of supporters but around 80-90% of us think you're full of sh!t!!! And if society lived like you think we should, it would destroy itself in days from all the hypocrisy!

Is this. Many legitimate pain sufferers cannot get pain medications because of the addiction problems and get rich Drs and dealers. This is the sad truth. Scary, isn't it?

stop complaining. America consumes 99% of hydrocodone in the world. Many countries dont have anything stronger than Tylenol 3s, even inside of hosppitals. Quit trying to ease through everything.

You're right--weight affects every aspect of one's well-being. You haven't seen me in quite some time, Patrick, so you're not aware that I've lost 30 pounds and am still losing. So far, it has not made one bit of differnece where the pain is concerned.

You're right--there are other things one can do to stave off pain. I believe I listed them in my other post. They usually don't put much of a dent in the pain...but a little relief is better than none.
As I type this, I am using another "form" of therapy. lol. I'm sure you can guess what it is. This is the right choice for me. By using this natural herb, I do not worry about what pain pills are doing to my system. It's also within my budget. It also lasts a long time--whereas, if I were taking pills that I had to buy from a dealer, I could only afford 5 at the most and that would only last me one day.

Hello, btw :) I haven't been on here in quite some time. Hope all is well with you and yours.
