I bought a home and 10 acres on Lookout mnt Fort Payne AL. My mother and I have genetic severe pain issue that requires us us to take narcotic pain meds to function and have some kind of life. We had lived in FL all our lives and dreamed of. Living rural for quite and have animals. We stayed in AL for almost 3 yrs and could not find a Dr anywhere that would prescribe meds we had been on for a longtime. We are very sad to have to leave our new home there. Its just sitting empty. We have to sell it. We moved back to. Home to FL. We couldn't find a doc in 100 miles of our home up there. I think they are prejudice and uneducated in chronic pain in FP AL. Thank God our pain doc took care of us long as he could til he couldn't mail our meds anymore. We are sad about we can't retire there. I am 46 she is 63. Paid cash for the property home there. Fort Payne AL needs to get doc that treat pain there without judging. We are not dope heads or addicts. We are legitamate chronic pain patients. A real shame. We had few friends and were happy. Now paying rent in FL. Do you think this is fair?

I sure wished someone could helped me find a doc. I would have loved to go back to fort payne and live in my new home there. Very disapointed. We take oxycodone. I would think dr up there would be afraid of that. But sorry it works great for us. Methadone is ok but regular pain medicine is best. Methadone can make you tired and gain weight a whole lot. We both tried it and gained 30 or more pds. Loratabs have way too much tylenol in it and is very bad for your liver, be careful. Also it stops working after bout a year of taking it. Something with any Ibprophen or tylenol added is best for chronic pain. You should be on a main med meaning time released and a break through for in between when you need a boost cause the pain spikes or flares up.ask your doc if they are real pain docs they should know all this but unfortunately most docs up there aren't good. They want to push injections they don't work for many just temporary and hurt like hell getting them for no reason. They make lots of money off those. Old fashioned pain meds are least invasive and in appropreiate amounts usually work great. I've seen people get surgery most of them still need meds. Talk bout everything with a kowledgable doc. If you find one that knows what I just told you please send me a message cause I want to move back to my home on the mtn. I don't mind driving a ways every 2 or 3 months to see a doc. Good luck hon, donna

Thank you but those Dr's are way to far south. I would need Huntsville or east of that no farther south than Gadsden. I'm not sure if T or GA would allow AL residents. I tried to find a doc for 2 and half years but had to move back home . Very sad that medical has to dictate where you live. Now I have to try to sell my home. I don't have a mortgage so not in a big hurry, but would love to live in it. If anyone knows a doctor that would be of use to me let me know. I will check back often thank you Donna

I suffer from chronic pain in my back, and shoulders. I was a patient at the Industrial Athelete in Birmingham. My doctor tried to put me on sub-oxones for pain relief and I had already been on them before with no pain relief at all. I desperately need a Doctor to write my pain meds who will take medicade or cash.Desperate in Alabama.

Charlie, I have great news. I am now the state leader for the American Pain Foundation Action Network. I attended a summit last week in Albany NY.
In doing this, I hope to bring awareness in Alabama as well as Florida. The foundation knows I own a home up there. So, I will be campaining for AL also.
First of all, Suboxone is designed for addiction and is not for treating chronic pain. Although they have done studies on for CP. It would have to be administered like 4 times a day, like methadone. I wouldn't recommend it for chronic pain. I feel those doctors up there only want to prescribe that because recently they had some continuing education on the product. So, they feel comfortable prescribing it. I would like you to join my FB group and also I have page on there. it's name is American Pain Foundation Action Network Florida and 1 same thing but says For Florida residents. They are for everyone, but I am in FL. I am supporting AL. also. please come find me over there. i just got done dreating those yesterday so be one of the first to be involved. See you there. there is plenty of great information

does anyone know of a doctor that will prescribe pain meds in pensacola, my wife and I are having to leave Alabama because our pain management doctor we have been seeing for several years has suddenly shut down his practice. We are moving to the Pensacola area because the doctors in Alabama seem to think that if you want pain medication to control your pain you are an addict,can someone please help. WE both suffer from serious back problems and are willing to travel beyond the Pensacola ares if we need to to find a doctor

My pain is so bad non stop that getting relief is all I can think about!! There has to be a good doctor out there who cares and is willing to help me. I have worked hard all my life I'm a law abiding citizen I don't abuse drugs and I don't drink school at all! I'm a good hearted person I love people and helping others. This pain is so bad I haven't been able to go to church the last three Sunday's I just need a good doctor who will and can help me! PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
