I’m concerned about the new recommended guidelines for opioids. My need is genuine, my dose is low for a chronic pain patient, but I don’t want to have to nearly beg every time I see my pain Doctor. Yes I understand that opioids are not the best choice for chronic pain, but I’ve tried everything else and what I’m on right now works! I haven’t had a dosage increase in a long time however every time I’ve tried to back my dose down the pain is unbearable. I’m so frustrated with it all.
