: : : I do not suffer from chronic pain but I have an interest in the topic, so sad to hear from so many desparate people, and how *de humanized* they feel trying to get help. Then the question comes to my mind
: : : ?? "Why have I never seen a post from a doctor who is suffering from chronic pain??? I have seen posts by nurses. But our dear gatekeepers.... they have no presence on line as sufferers of chronic pain....
: : : Could it be that the good doctors readily get their relief from pain needs met????
: : : Hmmmm?

: : Doctors don't have as physical a job as nurses. EG nurses lift and move around patients. So their probabaly arn't as many with cronic pain. Also they might be here but not letting us know. If you were a doctor in cronic pain would you tell everyone on the net and then end up working by trying to anwser everyones questions? Maybe they need help like we give each other but wouldn't be able to get it if known as 'Doctor'.

: : Good luck and God bless

: Hi, I think that docs do not lift nearly as much as nurses. I am a very small nurse and have suffered for 11 years with my pain. I know many doctors and not one of them, to my knowldege has chronic pain. Self prescribing is not legal, although they may have more "connections" to docs who treat pain, just on a professional level. I know so many physicians, yet I still suffer each day. Really, I think they do their best. They want you comfortable but not addicted if you need to work at a job that requires judgement.

: I do wish that they understood my need for pain control at night, after working--but even that is a problem. Perhaps, more education on pain control for all. I have studied this extensively and collect research to support my theories, so anyone wishing to respond is welcome. Kay

Most doctors do want to help but are afraid of the authorities ,just yesterday one doctor was arrested in Orlando Fl for prescribing hydrcodone to two undercover agents.How can you tell a difference between a patient and an undercover agent.How do you diagnose the severity of chronic pain there is no test available to measure pain.The doctor has to rely on what a patient says.Tactics like this by undercover agents are a SHAME .I am a chronic pain doctor and I have to be exteremely carefull
