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 in chronic pain for 13 years now and spend most of it laying on a couch. I have lost everything because of it. I can't sit or walk without pain medication, I've been humiliated by Drs, treated like a drug addict and when I tried to tell them it was getting worse I was punished or they would refuse to treat me any longer. Took them almost 13 years to find out my l5 disk had drilled through and been squirting acid on the nerves causing permanent nerve damage in both my legs. Among that I have fibromyalgia, deteriorating bone, rheumatoid arthritis among nerve neuropathy etc. I don't know how many times I thought of suicide laying on the couch only reason I havnt is my kids and grand kids and I keep having hope that a Dr will fix me or give medicine so I can do normal stuff that people take for granted like doing dishes or being able to sit up and watch tv. I've always take as prescribed but it's like pulling teeth. I would give anything for one of the Dr I've had to go through one day of what I have to. It gets harder every day to try to stay positive and not think of ending it . I think anyone with chronic pain not treated it has crossed there mind. All they have done is make people like me suffer then I see those that sell them a full script and I wonder how someone that don't need them gets them and that just burns my bottom. Something has to change or the tougher the regulation get the more suicides there going to be of chronic pain people that just wanted something of a life.

    Pancreas divisum causes me severe pain and theone surgery that sometimes relieves the pain didn't work for me. I have complied with ALL the ever-increasing restrictions, the $200 urine tests, paper prescriptions every 28 days, ID every rx pickup, and at my last pain clinic appt staff said because of the DEA continuing the regimen I've been on over 10 years isn't possible. No one in my situatio would THINK of sharing pills, but we get treated like criminals, meanwhile this prohibition is as much a failure as the 18th amendment.
