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
