CHRONIC PAIN PATIENT REGISTRY

433 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.

    My pain is mild generally but can suddenly become severe and those are the time I need the meds and usually time for spinal injections which usually allows me not to take them. I have had to take very expensive and unneeded urine drug screenings. It isn't fair to patients or doctors.

    I am asking that you help the chronic pain patient access the so much needed medication that allows us to functio in day to day life. As it is now, Drs are so afraid of the powers that control these things, that they will not rx them at all, even for legitimate chronic pain! So we are left to suffer, or go on the streets, or wherever they can find them : Or turn to heroin or suicide when all other otions are taken away. They get tired, so tired, of fighting the pain that it can overwhelm them to the point , they feel they can do nothing to stop the pain, so they commit suicide. Its a damn shame thet in this wonderful country that so many people are suffering many older citizens, who now need the medication . We are suffering every day that this goes on. I realize you have many situations that call for your help or action on, but, how long would you wait if you were in pain from the time you got up till you went to be, and then only snatches of sleep, because of course, pain has no clock, it rings all day all night, no difference to it. We have not asked for it. Who in their right mind would? Would you? Maybe im just writing to myself, as Im sure no one cares enough to read these things anyway.But on the smallest chance that someone does, dont we count ; or just the addicts you say are abusing the drugs, because so much more money can be made from rehab, which you know is costly, then of course, you still have the honest citizens in pain still suffering? Dont we coundt at all?
