Pain doc speaks to me about the use of medical cannabis success in his pain practice. If only we could get the DEA, who recently stopped the efforts to declassify cannabis as a schedule one drug to open their eyes.

Dr. Barton, a conservative physician by personality and training, says it required an evolutionary process to arrive at his present clinical outlook on medical marijuana.

I think the DEA will come around, as more and more states approve. I think it's nothing more than bureaucratic pride at this point, they don't want too look like they've been so horribly wrong all these years!

"...people who suffer from chronic pain should not have to suffer even more because of the combined actions of addicts and bureaucrats. Due to the negative effects that this policy has on millions of Americans, the DEA ought to reverse its scheduling decision on hydrocodone combination drugs."

+Susan Weber It is a mess, for certain. This is what happens when all stakeholders are not represented in any government suggestion. I am so sorry to hear this. I wish I could say it was a first.

The Peripheral Nerve Association (PNA) is quantifying personal damages due to CDC guidelines and other new laws to curb opioid abuse, resulting in collateral damages to the chronic pain community. They want to know about your inability to access medications, if you have been discharged by your doctor, etc. as a result. Please complete the survey if you or someone you love has been affected.

+Linda Nolan Yes. I hear from people routinely. I was abandoned by my family doctor without warning after many years on the same drug, same dose. It is happening at an alarming rate.

RN, author, fibromyalgia expert at ShareCare.com
Introduction

Toward the end of a twenty-year nursing career in critical care, emergency nursing, and education,  I found that the work I loved so much was no longer possible. My story is typical…

 *Excerpt from the introduction to Integrative Therapies for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Myofascial Pain: the Mind-Body Connection. Available here

I now have the privilege of of writing on chronic pain as a Health Pro at Health Central. You can read more about it here or visit me directly, here.

Since this introduction to our first book, I have had the honor of being a volunteer fibromyalgia expert for four years at Sharecare.com an online health forum created by Dr. Mehmet Oz and others.

I have been able to fulfill one of my personal goals to further advocacy by becoming a volunteer participant in the Pain Action Alliance to Implement a National Strategy. here

I continue to write health books and advocate for all people who suffer with chronic pain or invisible illness. You can read more about my books on my website and about who I am as an author, here. I continue to contribute to articles and journals, and I write a blog here

I started writing to help others, but what I learn is that I help myself. In healing and hope, Celeste

Dr. Karl Hurst-Wicker is now with the Desert Pain Institute in Mesa, AZ. I am so glad he made the move. I was leery since I was starting with a new doctor who was taking Dr. Cho’s place. I was pleasantly surprised. Dr. Karl Hurst-Wicker is knowledgeable and his skills are superior to any other pain doctors I have seen. He understands myofascial pain syndrome, the appropriate treatments, and all other related procedures for conditions that cause chronic pain. It is my pleasure to work with such a compassionate person who listens and takes my complaints seriously. In my 10+ years as pain care consumer, I have never experienced what it means to have a physician who works as a team member to investigate the right treatments for me. He is not only willing to collaborate, he embraces it and puts my outcome above all else so that I can live as productively as possible despite living with daily pain. I appreciate what a difference a team effort can make and I recommend Dr Hurst-Wicker to anyone who lives with chronic pain.
