Moving HEAL Research into Action

Treat Pain trending idea

Describe your idea here :

Please stop conflating pain with addiction. People in debilitating chronic pain are being denied rx analgesics without any justification for doing so leaving people like myself to buy medications online to be able to keep working. I shattered my coxis when I was a kid and have horrific nerve pain that has gone untreated for over a year. Denying pain medications is only making the problem worse as people are being left with no choice but to resort to the streets to alleviate suffering. There are 30- 50 million people in the US who suffer from daily pain. If you keep restricting effective analgesics, you are only contributing to the problem creating an immense black market and overdoses will continue to climb. Prohibition has never worked. Restore sensible pain care.    Stop putting pain patients through junk science alternative treatment for pain that do not work.
