Just had shoulder replacement. Last year had knee replacement and two years before that had knee replacement. Have Fibromyalgia and Graves Disease. Have migraine headaches but nothing wrong with head on MRI. Have chronic bladder infection. Doctor prescribed Nucynta for one month until shoulder pain was bearable. But two pharmacies refused to fill saying it was a class 2 drug (even though time released). I take Percocet for pain other than that for pain but now I'm told that by next year Percocet will be a class two drug and that I'll no longer be able to get it. I don't understand. I'm told its because of Obamacare and drug control issues. I heard a man on CNN say that there were few chronic pain sufferers and he didn't know why they keep coming up with other pain drugs. Has he lost his mind. Doctors don't even know what is going on. What are legitimate chronic pain patients to do that can document their excessive pain?View Thread
