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.
