CHRONIC PAIN PATIENT REGISTRY

To: U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Senator Judd Gregg and A Chronic Pain Patient Registry would serve as a qualified listing of only those who have been thoroughly evaluated and who\'s ongoing chronic pain condition has been fully documented. The Food and Drug Administration would recognize the pain medication and dosage being prescribed is that for a verified CCP. This would alleviate the need to investigate Physicians and Pain Management Specialists prescribing pain medication for possible abuse by non-chronic pain sufferers, as well as address the fear by medical professionals of losing their medical license or facing severe disciplinary action. CPP\'s would greatly benefit by receiving adequate pain medication required to help alleviate and control the high levels of pain which they endure on a daily basis. All who have signed this petition implore you to vote for, or assist in the creation of a Chronic Pain Patient Registry. Please help Chronic Pain Patients, who often needlessly and incompassionately endure intolerable levels of pain every moment of every day, obtain the help so desperately needed to improve the quality of their lives. Chronic pain doesn\'t stop with just the sufferer; it infiltrates into the lives of families and loved ones who often endure, but often times cannot endure, the devastating effect a life of pain, hopelessness and despair has on relationships and families. Jobs and income are lost, families are destroyed...lives are ended by suicide. A Chronic Pain Patient Registry will go far in greatly improving the quality of life for pain sufferers and those who surround them alike.

R. Zeke Fread, coordinator of Tampa Bay Coalition, http://www.tampabaycoalition.com/cppr.html , and chronic pain patient, along with other chronic pain patients, CPPs, are organizing a grassroots campaign to urge lawmakers to create a Chronic Pain Patient Registry, CPPR. With widespread abuse of pain medication by non-chronic pain patients. Physicians are reluctant to prescribe doses of medication needed to control the excruciatingly high levels of pain their CPPs endure, due to fear of FDA scrutiny and jeopardizing their license to practice medicine. This FDA scrutiny would be eliminated for registered patients physicians. Patients who suffer the devastating effects of chronic pain syndrome, will no longer be denied access to pain medication that controls their chronic pain to bearable levels. Greatly improving the quality of their and their families lives. President Bush\'s new campaign to curb abuse of pain medication by our youth, will increase restrictions on prescribing such medications. Increasing physicians fears of scrutinizing by the FDA, for prescribing required doses of pain medication for the excruciatingly high levels of pain their chronic pain syndrome patients suffer. Which will lead to an even high number of chronic pain patients, out of sheer desperation, to commit suicide. This registry will not only relieve suffering, but, save lives.

    Comments: Legally disabled chronic pain patient who has tried surgery and many other options to treat my chronic pain and only medications have given me somewhat of my life back, please do not take them away from me these medications help me sleep and function day in and out. Without them I can hardly leave my bed and I would end up in a nursing home.
