CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS\' PETITION FOR REINSTATEMENT OF RIGHTS

Messages Sent So Far
Currently over 140 million Americans have chronic pain. Since the implementation of the CDC Guidelines and the government's war on drugs, innocent people are being hurt. Over 120 million people used opioids for chronic pain in 2014 responsibly, without abusing or selling them, and keeping them out of the hands of children. Many people are contemplating suicide as a means to an end of their pain. Stop the injustice for these 120 million Americans today. Exempt chronic pain patients from the scrutiny and inhumanity associated with the laws created for those who may be abusing drugs. Let the doctors practice medicine as they see fit, not according to a non-specific percentage mandated by the FDA. Medical decisions must be left to the doctor and patient. The government cannot put false limits on the amount of medication it takes to prevent avoidable decline and death due to pain. The only way to make a dent on the Heroin Epidemic is to go after the source, not innocent victims.

This is very sad as I am a chronic pain patient ! I'm confined. To bed due to the pain !! Researching this problem on botb sides., Doczors are scared & are starting to tell the next generation not to become Doctors! Why because of the regulations & fear! They say - We can not treat the patients properly any longer ! My question is - since when did the DEA - get a degree to practice & why is it the handful of famous people who died made this to reflect on patients & Dr.'s! This is causing more problems according to a recent Documentary - chronic pain patients are going to the streets for medications. It's seems to me , that it's creating more problems! I have a rare disorder &. Many allergic reactions to many medications ! It's difficult to go from having a full active life n now down to just existing- we didn't ask to become sick n we suffer daily, Try to live the way we do for 1 week - there is no quality of life and no help now due to the interference of the DEA - A pharmacist gets fined 25,000 dollars for a missed signature - what will happen to our future generations. If both the pharmacist n Dr - go into different fields because of hefty fines, regulations , & not being able to treat patients freely - based on the education & what the Dr beloved is the appropriate treatment?

My husband is a Vietnam vet and the va has stopped giving him pain medication. His va doctor says it comes from his boss don't get mad at him. Question. They are so worried about suicides from the ones (which are few) that abuse but what the hell do they think these guys like my husband will do now. They just want to get rid of older ones sooner.

I have been in chronic pain for 19 years now. I have Chiari malformation, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis,cervical spondylitis. I was on pain medication since 2000. Although I am disabled, I was able to do some part time work and was able to live a halfway decent life. The pain medication allowed me this. I was 39 when I was diagnosed and now I'm 55. I basically have no life now. I can barely function. Although I am still getting a very small amount of pain meds it is not touching my pain and my pain Dr. Will not give me the amount I need to be able to function. This is all due to the Crack down and new laws. This is not right. I followed every rule and never abused my meds. Yet I feel I am being ignored, pushed aside and treated like a criminal. Please make changes to allow pain management to treat each patient as they seem appropriate according to their needs. You cannot lump us all together and put a limit on the entire group. Pain management should be allowed to determine who is a risk for abuse. This is an atrocity! My basic human rights to live the best life I can has been taken away because of a problem I had nothing to do with. I beg you to consider my plea and those of other chronic pain patients.
