Big Secret on a superior yet super restricted way to manage chronic pain suboxone questions?

Cuba here are some ideas on handling side effects of pain meds and some stuff I do to relieve pain other than just pills. You might find some of this helpful but I have questions too about pain management I hope someone can answer. I’m up against it. And the CDC is tightening up again. Friggin alcohol kills more people. No one is addressing the pain problem driving people to the pills in the first place.

Don’t get wrong idea…I’m on anti-inflammatory diet, alkalizing supplements, do pilates class, pilates at home on the mat, drink tons of water, get other types of exercise, use the non narcotic pain patch and anti inflammatory alcohol based tonic called Pennsaid before laying down on a bag of ice.

HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS…DOES ANYONE KNOW?

I’d like to change to suboxone because the big secret is that it works for more than just opiate cessation, it helps the pain. The bioavailability is such that you can get by on really really low doses. lower doses than a transfer chart would suggest!!!!! But doctors are limited to only having 100 pain patients on Suboxone. WHY? Does anyone know?

I read yesterday that Obama is pushing to raise that limit to 200 per doctor to deal with the heroin epidemic and pain pill problem.

Can anyone answer some of these questions for me or offer insight into suboxone for pain management?  If they cut me off, I’ll have to visit Mexico and Cuba after all. Even though Cuba will be open for cruise voyages on May 1, I wasn’t planning on going because I already live at the beach and drive an old car. hehe

Dr Houry at CDC Just ‘cuz it’s not cancer doesn’t mean it’s not serious pain

 

I have chronic pain, bipolar disorder, the Parkinson’s like side effect of tardive dyskinesia, which compounds my back pain problem. You try to live with that. Just because it’s not cancer doesn’t mean it’s not serious. If Medicare would just pay for the Coolief Radiofrequency cooled nerve ablation throughout my lumbar spine nerve branch block, I would be pain free for a year or more. I had the test for it.

I had three days of complete pain relief and went into automatic detox.But like they say on the radio: “This is only a Test.” They were just looking to see if they could isolate and numb the nerve for a few days to see if I’m a candidate for this painful process. I AM. But Medicare will not pay for it. No Prior Authorization nothing. And there are new research papers on studies that prove new technology has been effective for up to 80% of people for a year or more in a recent study. I need this procedure. I can’t bear the side effects of the pain meds or the pain itself,. Please, someone up there, hear me. I hurt. Let me heal. Burn my nerves. Buy me some more time.

 

The test alone cost 300 out of pocket. Medicare will not cover Coolief.  The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta says “No pain meds unless you have Cancer.”

Ok. Whatever. I’m in too much pain to fight you.. But believe me. I’m not going away. God has seen to that. I don’t know exactly why but he has. Or she has. allicat
