Apparently the FDA's fast-track approval process (which rushes drugs onto the market before they could be properly vetted for safety and efficacy) has now been fitted with a reckless supercharger in my opinion. Without the proper time-proven review of trial studies by FDA/CDER, future drugs may help Big-Pharma's bottom line while hurting a huge segment of the population. Clearly the Government has forgotten the lessons learned when COX-2 inhibitors Bextra and Vioxx were rushed to market.  That action led to nearly 100,000 heart attacks and 24,000 cardiac deaths. We at the EDNC stand with Public Citizen's concern that we may now see more of this in the future.

Although this is not a full disclosure of the National Practitioners Database, (which is funded & paid for by US Citizens) but it is a step in the right direction to weed out not only the crooks of the medical field but the incompetent as well. This is yet anther reason why the ACA must NOT be overturned. As promised, the ACA will now rate physicians on their overall performance. Performance based reimbursements is something I argued for with CMS representatives two years ago, not realizing it had already been approved within the Affordable Care Act itself. (aka, Obamacare)

Well done Mallory... beautifully written and heartfelt. Your strength and determination to persevere are an inspiration to all those who suffer from the horrors of Arachnoiditis pain as a result of their ESI therapy. Thank God you were spared from that hellish existence.

I never thought I'd be saying this, to congratulate someone on the anniversary of their disability, but it appears like the birth of a butterfly, to have brought out the very best in you! 

Kindest regards : )

To watch in HD on a PC, please click the small gear-icon along the lower right hand corner of the video and hit either the 720p or 1080p setting. It takes a few seconds for the change to take effect. (This will only work if your internet connection supports high streaming.) Then to remove the small annoying ads that may appear along the bottom of the video, simply click onto the small "X" in the upper right hand corner of the ad. They should disappear.
