Art Bell Cause of Death Overdose
    #25376889 - 08/09/18 11:52 AM (2 months, 11 days ago)

Art Bell Died From Accidental Prescription Overdose.
Aug 2, 2018
art bell
Art Bell’s April 13 death was the result of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, authorities in Nevada said Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. An autopsy showed the former “Coast to Coast AM” talk show host died from “multiple drug intoxication from his own lawfully prescribed prescriptions,” Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly’s office said in a brief Facebook announcement.

The medical examination showed Bell had the painkillers oxycodone and hydrocodone, the sedative diazepam and the muscle-relaxant carisoprodol in his system, according to Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg. Other significant factors in Bell’s death were high blood pressure and the lung disease chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, Fudenberg said, per the AP story. The coroner found no evidence of foul play in Bell’s death, which took place at his Nevada home.

“Coast to Coast AM” with Art Bell was syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, and at its peak in popularity, aired on more than 500 radio stations with 15 million listeners. He hosted the show off and on from 1988-2010, retiring four times before officially passing the baton to current host George Noory. After leaving Premiere, Bell was heard for a short time on SiriusXM. In 2015, Bell signed off for good, citing a similar theme that caused his earlier retirements – unspecified threats to himself and his family. At the time he was hosting another late-night paranormal program, “Midnight in the Desert,” which was started as an online show that was eventually syndicated to approximately 20 radio stations.

Bell's studios were located in his home in the town of Pahrump, located in Nye County, Nevada; hence the voice-over catchphrase, “from the Kingdom of Nye.”

Yeah I wouldn't expect long term opioid pain management unless you have an obvious condition that keeps you screaming in pain.

You can always get on heroin and tell your doc you want off to get on suboxone. That shit works better than heroin and you are less likely to od on it since it contains naloxone as well as the buprenorphine.

I guess I dont scream high enough.... they value patients how much they scream!

I will not tell the details, but I am disabled man without pain meds .  Can hardly do daily activities


These only the fake doctors , prideful ones of course. Some are real but prevented from helping patients. Due to laws.

Unless you have cancer, you won't get help. And often first few weeks before death, you need a death sentence for opioids today.

(my mom had cancer, this is my experience... they tested on her... all sorta drugs that didn't work... then before death she could get help, morphine... all she wanted, but.... not before last few weeks, like 3-5 weeks befor death

laws.. in way..


before that muscle relaxanats
and mental evaluation, hormones, steroids

yet they KNew she had cancer.... she had 5years... , just not allowed help her


afraid of addicts

I work in a pain management clinic and I know what you are talking about. The chronic pain that some people have requires pain management of some sort. A lot of people just maintain their lives through medication. Without it they wouldn't be able to function at all. Some are very compliant and never take more than needed, the scripts never run out, and they have been doing so for multiple years. The current "opioid crisis" has caused many prior authorizations for people that really need the meds, and the insurance companies are just dropping coverage on a lot of them. Or they are putting a parameter of X amount of milligrams per 60 day rolling periods and so on.

Some people need to wean off the meds as they have become too dependent on them and opiate addiction is the worst addiction I have ever seen besides alcohol. The people effected that are compliant are suffering because of the knuckleheads that just want to get high on the meds. There is also Ketamine infusion therapy for pain, but the variance in how long the therapy lasts is very great. It does get people to cut down on meds, and it has an added effect of anti-depressive action. Insurance covers the therapy for a lot of people, maybe check that out. It seems like the people in control are just saying "fuck them, let them just get used to the pain and/or die" because there have been many suicides recently because peoples pain meds have been cut down, or completely off. Finally something I can relate to you about!:grin:

#OpioidCrisis Pain Related SUICIDES associated with forced tapers
May 30, 2018 More PAIN RELATED SUICIDES added associated with opioid pain medication reductions and discontinuations as recommended by the CDC and by Andrew Kolodny, M.D. and his “Physicians for Responsible Opiate Prescribing” (PROP)

1.

Phillip Kuykendall from Statesville, North Carolina was a 63 year old man, an active member of society and hobbyist whose doctor refused to prescribe medication for his pain disease. After a stay in a hospital near Statesville where he went to have his pain disease assessed, he was discharged with no pain medicine. His brother, who was involved with helping him obtain pain control, went to Phillip’s home on December 29, 2016 and found Phillip dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his head. “He took the last, and only, relief he thought he had left,” said a person familiar with the situation.

2.

Allison Kimberly, age 30, of Colorado was denied treatment for her intractable pain from interstitial cystitis and several other painful conditions. Interstitial cystitis can end in suicide from the failure to treat it properly as it is an extreme form of agonizing discomfort. It is said that the University of Colorado emergency room in Aurora refused her treatment for her pain.


deceased
Allison posted on Instagram describing how she was treated as an addict and sent away without pain medicine. “I was rushed to the ER because my pain was so out of control I couldn’t take it anymore, I got ZERO help. After 7 hours I was discharged. The nurse has the nerve to say that my kind of pain shouldn’t be that bad and basically I was faking for medication. I am so beside myself I am shaking as I type this. Screaming and begging in pain, needing any kind of help they’d give me and I was just sent home. As soon as I am able I’m reporting my whole experience.” Allison did not have time to file a complaint against the hospital as she violently ended her life while her mother walked her dog, the animal companion that had made her anguish less lonely. No doctors appear to have been charged. The Colorado Hospital Association was in the process of piloting a no-opioid policy for the state. She died in June, 2017.

3.

Ryan Trunzo of Massachusetts committed suicide at the age of 26. He was an army veteran of Iraq. He had experienced fractures in his back for which he tried to get effective painkillers, but failed because of the VA’s policy of denying or reducing needed pain medication. His mother stated: “I feel like the VA took my son’s life.” Link to obituary:

http://www.startribune.com/obituaries/detail/18881/?fullname=trunzo,-ryan-j

4.Kevin Keller, a Navy veteran from the USS Independence in the 1980’s was from Virginia. He took his own life at age 52. He shot himself after breaking into the house of his friend, Marty Austin, to take his gun. Austin found a letter left by Keller saying “Marty sorry I broke into your house and took your gun to end the pain!” Keller had experienced a stroke 11 years earlier, and he had worsening pain in the last two years of his life because VA doctors would not give him pain medicine. On the subject of pain medication, Austin said that Keller “was not addicted. He needed it.” The suicide occurred one year after the VA announced the “Opioid Safety Initiative” to stop pain medicines for US veterans, like Kevin Keller. The VA would not comment.

5.

Mercedes McGuire of Indiana ended her life August 4th, 2017 after struggling with agony originally suppressed with opioid pain medicine but reappearing after her pain medicine was cut back in a fashion after the CDC regulations. She was in such discomfort she went to the ER because she could not stand the intractable pain by “learning to live with it” as suggested by CDC consultants. The ER gave her a small prescription. She went to the pharmacy where they refused to fill it “because she had a pain contract.” She went home and killed herself. She was a young mother with a 4 year old son, Bentley.

6.

Bob Mason, age 67 of Helena, Montana was denied pain medicine to treat his chronic pain after losing access to his pain control doctor and finding no one else, took his own life in January of 2016. He tried to “deal with his pain” as is recommended by the new pain minimizer CDC consultants. He tried for 7 days to deal with it.


Bob Mason
According to Mason’s daughter, Mieska, the last couple weeks up before Bob passed away, there were a lot of tears everyday on the phone,” she said, “between the pain and really just the sadness of not being able to walk his dog, but, I’m sure it was more than that. There would be tears, then he would joke,” she said, “then he’d call back an hour later and be teary and in pain again. He didn’t like the drugs, but there were no other options.” His suicide became the other option.

7.

Zach Williams of Minnesota died by his own hand at age 35. He was an army veteran of Iraq and had experienced back pain and a brain injury in battle. He had successfully treated his pain with opiate pain medicine until the VA began reducing prescriptions under the new VA law, December 2015, based on CDC recommendations of reducing or stopping pain medicine to avoid addiction.

Link to the obituary:

http://www.whitefuneralhomes.com/fh/obituaries/obituary.cfm?o_id=2254657

8.

Jessica was a “pain warrior”, loved by a group of people with similar issues dealing with intractable pain after forcibly reducing her pain medicines as suggested by the contagious disease specialists at CDC encouraging doctors to reduce “opioids” for fear people might addict or die from an overdose. Jessica had particularly painful central pain syndrome that is untreatable except for pain suppression. She would never have addicted as she was already on pain medicine. She ended her life after inadequate treatment by physicians (other details withheld).

9.

A Cleveland, Ohio resident (name withheld), mother of a teenage daughter, and wife was denied her long term pain medicine reportedly by doctors at the Cleveland Clinic. She had a spinal electrical stimulator implanted, at great cost and discomfort in order to satisfy CDC’s dictum of “alternative” treatment first even if more expensive, painful and less effective. It did little to help. What worked was long term opiate medicine which was successful in the past without side effects or addiction. Her medicine was reduced for no other reason other than honoring CDC “voluntary” directives. She waited for her husband to be out of town and her daughter to with a friend, then took her life to stop the intractable pain in August of 2016.

My doctor said to meto change doctor, or he would lose his authorization,he afraid he would get fired.

Trouble with the system.

He not allowed prescribe opioids in those doses. But I am in a lot of pain. I won't describe how much here, for my own anonymity.

System is likely wonderful when it works, unfortunately without a diagnosis you are often treated like a hypochondriac, and laughed at. And it happened to my mom too, until she died from cancer.


Not to downplay doctors at all, they can make mistakes too. We all human.

But system needs to listen more to its people, I hear I am not alone, I also been to pain clinics without them being helpful to me, rejected me without hearing me - not fully diagnosed. Bee waiting years.


I have personally no hope for system anymore due to the way I was treated. Used to believe in it.
It worksif yo have a severe diagnosis like stage 4 cancer.

But greyzone and you on your own often... in many countries.

Judge me and you dead to me. Nice try though sir, but you judge me in every thread. You can though get your sarchasm running, and hypocricy, so everyone can see 'how fuckedup i am'

Good try.

But what does it say about you?

Why you fear the word 'evil spirits' -- oh your science indoctrination didn't tell you it. So everybody must be DE-LU-SIO-NAL. Happy shortcircuitmindedness for you.

There is no hope for you.

So you consider opposing views, conversation, and debate as harassment? Her ass meant nothing to me! I'm starting to think you might be a very shifty troll type. Try to loosen up and see another point of view without claiming to be "judged".
