2016 - New Year - New CDC Pain Guidelines

So many new possibilities for people with sickle cell disease. The medical community is tripping over itself to claim "The Cure", but until we ALL can live pain-free, I stay on the mission.

We have a new generation of people with sickle cell trait not knowing the facts about possible challenges they may face. We have to be transparent with the truth, however uncomfortable. Again, that's my job.

Here's some truth, New CDC Chronic Pain Treatment  Guidelines open for comment - The CDC has posted the Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, along with supporting documents on the Federal Register for a 30 day public comment period ending January 13, 2016.

The notice is on the Federal Register - 31375
