CHRONIC PAIN PATIENT REGISTRY

463 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.

    I have been a chronic pain sufferer since 1981, and recently got sent to a pain clinic and they dropped my pain meds to about 1/3 to 1/4 of what they where, and didn't even wean me off and for the last 3 months I have been going through withdrawals and unbelievable pain in my left hip which is inoperable due to a giant cell tumor back in 1981. These last 3 months have been hell on earth. I hope that the legislators and congress have some kind of compassion and mercy and take action on the CDC an DEA guidelines because their war is not against us chronic pain sufferers it is against the heroin users and junkies on the streets. These are about the most senseless and useless recommendations I have ever witnessed. My life went from being pain managed so that I could live a somewhat reasonable life to where I don't know how long I am able to bear the pain. If this makes sense to anyone I sure would like someone to explain what seems like torture to me and has ended a tolerable life. I spend 4-5 days a week on the couch and when I do get up is only long enough to take a shower and back again. Is this any kind of a life? What cruel and inhumane punishment is this. If they had to live in pain like this they would be as we are trying to get help from someone. I guess when the suicide rates go up for chronic pain patients they will just blame it on patient OD and not look in the mirror at what they have caused. It's pitiful.

    It's about quality of life or just give us a chance to try to live better. That maybe the right pain med will just once allow me to enjoy life alittle better if even for an hour; or just once maybe let me go to the parj with my kids. Is that asking to much? Please let my doctors help me.

    The restrictions set CDC and FDA are inhumane and unconstitutional to those with Chronic Pain.
