That's the same way I became aware of Flector, Free Samples. It helps to be creative when placing the patch on, don't stretch it or it comes off quick. I discovered by placing in on very loose, then using breathable tape on all four corners (looks like a big X), it seems to be the best way to make them stick on for several hours and usually overnight while sleeping. My Main Doctor nor the Neurosurgen will prescribe anything more than Tramadol (not much better than an aspirin), because they are all to worried about
getting on some stupid DEA watch list, but they are all too willing to send you to a "Pain Management Center", which in our area translates to "Pill Doc". I would NOT wish my chronic pain on ANY human on this planet, "Except" my doctors! They should experience the pain we do first hand, at least for a few months so they can gain insight and prospective on what it really feels like to have chronic pain. If they did suffer as we do, I think they would be far less worried about
a DEA list and more focused on helping us manage our pain without trying to shuffle us out the the "Pill Docs". Just to make it fair, maybe everyone in the chain should have to endure the same pain (law makers, law enforcement agents, medical personnel, etc), I bet that would bring about
change in a hurry. Please don't get me wrong, I know prescript
ion drug abuse is a real problem, but I don't think anyone has come up with an effective filtering/screening process yet, to tell the abusers apart from the genuine sufferers... Maybe someday soon, I hope.
