The Chronic Pain Dilemma

What was your experience like seeking treatment for chronic pain?
No problems, my doctor understands me perfectly and I’m pain free - 12.5%
Not too bad, had to see a few doctors, but I’m getting by ok - 12.5%
A bit frustrating, my doctor helps me somewhat, but I’m still in pain and need more help - 75.0%
I’m still not doing very well, it’s hard to find a doctor who really cares, but I manage to get by - 0.0%
Very frustrating… It’s costing me too much, and doctors are very difficult to work with - 0.0%
Terrible, I feel like a criminal, and no doctor seems willing to treat me with medications - 0.0%

So much needless suffering… We talk to people every day who continue to struggle with legitimate chronic pain! Dealing with the constant pain is bad enough, but it gets worse… So many patients tell us that they are made to feel like drug seekers even before they are seen by the doctor! Finding a good doctor can seem like an impossible task to many, so frustration, depression, and that nagging relentless pain eventually lead some to searching for relief online. The online world, however, is no safe place! Counterfeit medications, rip offs, and scam artists are all waiting to take advantage of you! Every forum is filled with similar pleas for help and reports about the many scams and lost money, the list goes on…
