This excellent article from an author crippled by spinal pain tells the story of the current “pain crisis”.
She explains how the CDC guidelines were written in secrecy with input mainly from anti-opioid activists and how these guidelines have had horrible effects on pain care in this country. She backs up her statements with numerous current references, as everyone should (and the anti-opioid zealots never do).
In 2012, life was great: I proudly wore a white coat with a stethoscope around my neck and finally felt useful to humanity.
Because the author was/is a medical professional, she knows what she’s talking about.
