Please sign this PETITION: Change NICE guidelines for Chronic Pain.

A recent article entitled Commonly used treatments for chronic pain can do more harm than good and should not be used, says NICE in draft guidance said that 'paracetamol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ,benzodiazepines or opioids should not be offered. As little or no evidence that they made any difference to people’s quality of life, pain or psychological distress, there was evidence that they can cause harm, including possible addiction.

Hi Zoe, Thank You for your comment. Some feedback has been that the petition needs to highlight exactly what needs reviewing - is this why you couldn’t sign?

What do you currently take or do to help reduce your pain levels may I ask? :)

P.S. Hope you don’t mind I’ve edited your comment to remove your full name for security purposes.
