Jul 22, 2017 · Why can't people with chronic pain/fatigue use performance enhancers? in Autoimmune Diseases

Unfortunately arbitrary limits on opiates is not based in scientific study. Keep fighting, bring malpractice suit if necessary. If all else fails, then you are being forced to order needed medication from the internet or the corner dealer which is dangerous but certainly better than accepting torture. Good Luck – keep up the fight and do what you know is right (which doesn’t include being in pain 24 hours a day)!

Jul 22, 2017 · How do you deal with high levels of pain in Spine Health

If you have ruled out things like broken bones, diabetes, cancer, etc. and you are still in pain 24 hours a day you will likely need opioid medication. Don’t be frightened since intractable pain patients have a lower rate of addiction than the general population. When pain is under control you can then try physical therapy, exercise, improving diet. Getting the pain under control is the first and most important step. Uncontrolled pain can cause stroke, heart attacks, depression, and many other serious illnesses. If you truly have intractable pain demand treatment. You can actually file complaints against doctors who don’t abide by their oath to do no harm. Good Luck!!!

THC and CBD from marijuana are very helpful for some. I myself have overproduction of a hormone that deactivates THC before it crosses the blood/brain barrier. Therefore I take gabapentin which has proven to help with intractable pain and is not a scheduled medication. For opiates, don’t take no for an answer if you have tried everything else. You can actually report a doctor to your state health board if the refuse you treatment and you’ve tried everything else.

Apr 15, 2017 · Marijuana has no effect in Chronic Pain

I’m well versed in medicine but has anyone heard of a condition that prevents a person from feeling THC and CBD from marijuana? Out of frustration I consumed 100mg of very high quality THC and felt nothing.

Apr 15, 2017 · Do you think mproving circulation helps with pain? in Chronic Pain

Definitely a link because I have venous insufficiency in one leg and that leg always hurts more than rest of my body. If non-medicated therapy doesn’t work, low dose Opana has allowed me to live.

Apr 14, 2017 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

1. How are people getting CRPS diagnosed? I’m a textbook case for the pain disorder but any doctor I’ve ever seen won’t ever touch CRPS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc. that’s not special for me but rather that seems to be a set of illnesses that doctors in Washington state won’t come near.
2. Outside of the above I have a litany of issues that clearly warrant proper opiate treatment (I’ve shown in the past that doses of around 80mg MME a day triple quality of life) but can’t find a doctor in Washington state to even discuss anything other than Tylenol 4. Again, this isn’t exclusive to me. What are people to do outside of using the darkweb or flying to Miami?

Apr 9, 2017 · Herniated disk and pain. What helps? in Spine Health

Have many of the symptoms above and spent years on methadone and opana during which I raised 3 boys, got an MBA and almost finished PhD. In 2012 I was forced onto suboxone because it is “safer.” Since then I can’t find one doctor in my state to even touch methadone. 20mg a day was a life saver. Why can’t I find a doctor? I have security clearance for Christ sake so my risk profile is about as low as it gets. What are people like myself to do?
