I have NO life cannot due anything since my chronic pain Dr. cut my pain medication by 120 mgs and now I�m at wits end at least before he cut my pain medication down my son bought me a retrofit bike and it was beautiful to do the biking and that was the main reason I lost sixty lbs. now I�m so afraid of gaining weight and it�s at the point I need help bathing. I�ve got a new MRI and from ten years ago everything is severe to very severe, so I believe my pain Dr. lower my dose because he�s afraid of the DEA, I�ve been through it all and I cannot take this horrible pain anymore
