CHRONIC PAIN PATIENT REGISTRY

447 Signatures Goal: 500

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.

    Have had chronic pain since auto accident in 2002. Tried different therapies; none worked except pain meds. Had minimal problems when I lived in FL and my family doctor prescribed my pain meds. In 2015, I moved to DE and have been unable to get pain meds here. Am trying with yet another new doc on Wednesday. Don't have much hope. I've spent the last 1-1/2 years on the sofa unable to function. Am alone and have no family or friends here to help me. Seems like suicide may be only option. God help all of us!

    After being permenantly disabled for 16, my Dr of 12 years is out of no where, abruptly and rapidly cutting off my pain meds. This
    started 4/5/16 but only gave 30 days notice. He will not, and has not, referred me any where or to any one for different treatments that may help control this constant pain. I have never failed any surprise blood or urine
    tests, that were done, on the spot, failed any surprise med counts, or broken any pain contracts. I have had 2 drs in 16 years. The first moved to Colorado and referred me to my current dr. Now I will be left in severe torturous pain, every minute of my life, that no one could withstand. I will lose my ability to do very simple daily tasks, getting dressed, showering, getting my own food, driving, going to the bathroom, attending a holiday dinner, or anything that others take fully for granted. I can't eat or sleep due to severe pain. I've lost 12 lbs already. Because I did absoloutely nothing wrong, I will also lose my ability to be around my grandbabies. My middle granddaughter will be devastated. I am everything to her. I won't be able to just sit through a Disney movie with them. I will never hear the words Grammy again or even be able to just hold them in my lap. There is no way I can let them watch me deteriorate this quickly. I will also lose my rescue cat and dog. Basically everything I hold dear and all my happiness will be ripped away because I never did anything wrong. I took my medication responsibly and only as directed. No other dr will take me as a patient. The Gov of Maine is ruining this state and the people in it.

    Stop the misinformation by CDC/FDA and other about chronic pain patients. Drug addiction's # 1 problem is youth. Youth are stealing and taking and selling stolen medications. It is not the legitimate chronic pain patient that is the problem. It is the criminals.

    I'm a chronic pain patient due to brain surgery on my Thalamus,which caused me to be medically retired. Why not ask me how strict laws impact me? I couldn't get my prescription filled today because of the new federal guidelines. Do you have any idea how hard to make life for the disabled like me? Perhaps you should.
