2)which underscores the need for close supervision of these patients."

Let's take a look at their rationale for their conclusion.

Of 9940 patients who received 3 or more #opioid prescriptions over an 8 years, 51 experienced an #overdose, 6 of the 51 experienced a fatal event.
3)The researchers did not make the yearly data available, nor did they provide data on any known prior history of Substance Use Disorder #SUD within the #Patient population.

It's impossible to determine how they performed their calculations to obtain these results.
4)While they did provide percentage risk based on MME dosages, they also Risk based folks multipliers which obscures actual risk. The highest percentage of risk reported based on MME dosage was less than 2%,

Limitation: Low OD Rate 🙄🤦‍♂️…

Just doing some digging. #Pain is extremely nuanced. And the approach should also. W my kids #health & #pain there has been continued lack of knowledge, assumptions, & unwillingness to understand.

how this can impact #pain
➡️ Not identify or understanding impact of #MalabsorptionSyndrome
➡️Assumption that removal of #pancreas should immediately ‘solve’ issue of #ChronicPain

#Pain is nuanced
The difficulty with articles such as below example, is nuances not recognized.
For example, I could identify as someone with #chronicPain I have a few conditions that are accompanied by #pain.
My #pain is NOT unrelenting, it’s there ‘hovering’ in the 1 Image
background. I do #yoga 🧘‍♂️ & #meditation & for ME, for the #pain I experience, it provides benefit.
However, take my kids; NASH, kidney disease, gastroperisis, T3, scar tissue neuropathy etc. #mindfullness #meditation is not going even touch it. Not in anyway

😣Patient: "All my joints are painful & swollen!"😣

👩‍⚕️But when you examine the patient, you don't find any joint swelling

How to approach this scenario? 🤷

#MedTwitter #RheumTwitter #MedEd 🧵🧵🧵

(1/10) Image
Now there are two possibilities

1️⃣ There was a joint swelling which is no longer there


2️⃣ There was no joint swelling to begin with

Let's start with the first one– there was indeed joint swelling which is no longer there

That means we are dealing with

☝️ An episodic inflammatory disease
✌️ Drug modified disease

How a valuable possession slowly damaged a young man's nerve

1. 30-year-old Sidh consulted me with severe sharp shooting #pain from right buttock to the leg & foot for 3 months. Pain was more while sitting and lesser while standing or walking. Pain increased on lying down.
2. He was evaluated elsewhere.
MRI spine ruled out slipped disc and nerve compression in lower back region.
Nerve conduction studies had shown severe damage of right sciatic nerve (see the image below to see the location and course of sciatic nerve).
3. No cause for sciatic nerve damage was obvious. On detailed enquiry, he informed that he always carried a "fat wallet" in his right back pocket, which remained in his pocket while he sat in office during work (10 hours a day).
Now, I could guess the cause.

Consider lead toxicity due to Ayurvedic medications in patients with unexplained abdominal pain

1. In the past 6 months, we saw 5 patients with unexplained abdominal pain associated with weakness of hands and feet. All were taking Ayurvedic medicines for various reasons.
2. Blood lead levels were high in all of them (>25 mcg/dl). There was no history of occupational lead exposure in any of them.
They were treated with d-penicillamine (chelation therapy). Ayurvedic medicines were stopped.
#MedTwitter #NeuroTwitter #ayurvedicmedicine
3. Abdominal pain resolved. Weakness of hands and legs partially improved. Four patients had anemia and one had kidney damage (these showed only partial improvement).

There's no friendly way to put this:

The new CDC Opioids Guidelines are a farce when it comes to saving patients' lives.… #chronicpain #opioids #opioidcrisis #fentanyl #lawenforcement #drugs #politics #health #disability #disabled #cancer #addiction #pain
The CDC 2022 update is not meant to reform the guidelines

It's meant to absolve the CDC of guilt & wash its hands of an opioid prohibition & crisis it helped create… @elizableu @yashar @chadfelixg @conor64 @lhfang @stillgray @joerogan @TaylorLorenz
Christopher Jones, acting director of CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention & Control

Said the guideline is about "improving the lives of patients living with pain.”

Then why did the CDC push further & deeper restrictions against patients?

Long-standing unwanted & unpleasant genital sensations in a woman of neurological origin

1. 41-year old woman presented with 3-year history of persistent abnormal sensations involving vagina, #clitoris and labia, without #sexual interest or #desire.
#MedTwitter #neurotwitter
2. She found it hard to describe the sensations but used terms like vibrating, tingling, painful, throbbing, pulsating and numbness in vagina & surrounding regions. There was a sense of imminent #orgasm. Sexual activity & orgasm, however, did not relieve her symptoms.
3. Symptoms got worse on sitting and on lying down, but were lesser on standing or walking. Tight clothing or underwear aggravated her symptoms. She also had #pain in both legs, and felt the urge to constantly move her legs to reduce pain & discomfort (in legs & feet).
