JULES AMEEL VIA GETTY IMAGES
A rainbow emerges over Paisley Park in Chanhassen, Minn., while fans pay respect to singer Prince.

Tears marked a heartbreaking day for music lovers around the world, and at Paisley Park, the estate where Prince was found dead on Thursday, those tears mixed with rain.
But as fans mourned outside Prince’s home near Minneapolis, a rainbow stretched across the sky, reminding all of the beauty and love the icon’s music represented.

Prince’s Reported Cause Of Death Released By Law Enforcement Official

The music legend died on April 21 at the age of 57.

06/02/2016 12:17 pm ET | Updated 2 minutes ago
According to a law enforcement official close to the investigation behind Prince’s death, the singer reportedly died of an opioid overdose. The Associated Press was the first to report the news, saying the official “spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.”

Well, it's un-nerving to me, Fuzzy; that we've had so many - many gifted musicians/artists and who knows how many other entertainers that have because of their notoriety and wealth can purchase a Doctor to provide what they get addicted to Evil or Very Mad

soapbox  And the number & millions of Medicare & Medicaid fraud that is caught {that we hear about} is generally done by doctors and their clinics!

Prescription drugs are a worse problem than illegal drugs, the amount of people who are hooked on them is huge and they can't give them up, not only because of the addiction, but because of the pain that caused them to take the drugs in the first place.

Trying ignoring the 'POT STIRRERS' it makes conversations flow ever so much better that way!

Our government has finally taken a firm stand about Opioids and instead of allowing doctors to hand out a 3 months prescription - they're only allowed a 3 week prescription at the most and the lowest dosage possible and 'NO PHONE CALLS' for refills - the patient has to be seen by their original attending physician prior to obtaining a refill and that has to be a original written prescription - hand delivered to the pharmacy.
No more mailing - no more faxes - no more emails ...prescription processes allowed. Mad

I'm sorry for your loss Sassy. It's sad when a parent has see their child die.

This kind of nerve damage is not only generally irreversible. What most people don't realise is that it's degenerative.

Surgery in most cases is not an option as you risk damaging nerves even further. In most cases, a lifetime of pain killers is the only choice.

There needs to be more education of repeatedly extending your lumbar spine and lower body impact. As well as other movements that affect the spine. Surely dancing in this way or many sport movements is not worth this lifetime of pain.

Thanks Zack.  Hers started with a broken elbow, they pinned through the main nerve, then she got necrosis in it.   It started CRPS and she was never out of pain for 25 years, from 12 onwards.

So he died of an overdose, not the actual addiction. It's no surprise really - it had to be something sudden and catastrophic.

If the tox results show he died of an opioid overdose, that seems pretty certain to me.

Oh I see what you mean. I don't know. He might have had it, but it was still an overdose which killed him. You don't suddenly die of AIDS in a lift.

So why was it mentioned - hinted at? No need really unless they wanted to throw a smokescreen up.

I certainly think that people need to understand that opioids can be powerful drugs. Prescription codeine is much more potent than the stuff you can buy over the counter, for example. However, there are warnings in the package insert which say it should only be taken for a few days - that includes the stuff you can buy in Boots. Maybe doctors should be telling patients to go easy on it though.

I've taken prescription codeine, and I needed it at the time, but I was careful only to take it if it was absolutely necessary.

I suppose the question is why he was taking fentanyl in the first place. It's a pretty strong drug.

I'm just conjecturing here but having 2 neighbors that are epileptic {one guy in his 50's has gran-maul seizures and one little girl that has just turned 10 has silent internal seizures - her major organs will stop functioning} both have different degrees of severity with their types of seizures. 

Could it be that Prince had been having 'silent seizures' and his staff/doctors weren't catching the systems and his prescriptions pain pills were masking the severity of his failing condition?
The main reason I'm thinking that, is the month leading up to this episode when he went unconscious on his plane >

An addiction treatment doctor, Howard Kornfeld, has also stated he was in touch with Prince's representative the day before Prince died.
Prince's death was less than a week after his plane made an emergency stop in Moline, Illinois, for medical treatment as he was returning from an Atlanta concert. The Associated Press and other media reported, based on anonymous sources, that Prince was found unconscious on the plane, and first responders gave him a shot of Narcan, an antidote used in suspected opioid overdoses.
Two weeks before he died, Prince canceled concerts in Atlanta, saying he wasn't feeling well. He played a pair of makeup shows April 14 in that city, and then came the emergency landing in Moline. He was scheduled to perform two shows in St. Louis but canceled them shortly before his death.
http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2016/06/02/prince-died-opioid-overdose-official-tells-ap.html
If he had that happen again in that private elevator and wasn't discovered for hours, then he'd surely have suffered to much trauma to have survived.

They finally gave my mom 'Fentanyl' pain patches: her spine and bust sacrum and then eventual bed ridden made taking even crushed Oxycodone useless after several months.
Fentanyl pain patches were the only thing that helped ease those horrid back muscle spasms she'd get!


A source close to the investigation of Prince’s death has confirmed that he died of an opioid overdose. Prince had a long history of health problems, focused specifically on issues with his hip. Although his family has not addressed exactly why Prince was taking opioids, family and friends close the musician have provided reasons why he may have become addicted to the painkillers.
Here’s what you need to know.
The medical examiner who performed Prince’s toxicology has confirmed that Prince died from a Fentanyl overdose, according to TMZ. In addition, a previous source had confirmed that Percocet was found in Prince’s system when he died.
Friends close to Prince have said that he may have been taking highly addictive painkillers because of severe hip pain he was struggling with ever since his Purple Rain tour, New York Daily News reported. Fentanyl is prescribed for chronic and severe pain. (Read more about Fentanyl here.)

So he was taking fentanyl and Percocet, both of which are opioids. Not a good idea.

The report says he died of fentanyl toxicity, which could have been a one-off overdose, or it could have been some kind of accumulation of the stuff. It was probably an overdose, considering the rapid manner of his incapacitation.

They give out so many stories that one becomes confused as to what really happened.

Well the only thing which is clear is that he died of fentanyl toxicity, and that it was an accident in the opinion the medical examiner. I'm sure there will be questions and accusations as to why it happened.

Oh do stop it Zack. Whatver you think of Nicko, everyone can clearly see you're being a complete arse over this, and it's not like you to be pedantic really.

He asked if it was drugs. How is that disrespecting anyone?
You're being a stubborn little toddler.

Of course he was addicted. Just because it's a prescribed med does not mean he is not addicted. Overdoses often occur because the addiction is so great that the deceased goes beyond the prescribed dosage.

Prince was being treated by an addiction specialist, most likely attempting to wean him off the opioid. The likely scenario is he fell off the wagon that weekend, overdosed and died.

Of course he was addicted.  Just because it's a prescribed med does not mean he is not addicted.  Overdoses often occur because the addiction is so great that the deceased goes beyond the prescribed dosage.

Prince was being treated by an addiction specialist, most likely attempting to wean him off the opioid.  The likely scenario is he fell off the wagon that weekend, overdosed and died.

Try to read what I actually said. I didn't say he wasn't addicted, and I'm very well aware that people can get addicted to prescription drugs. The question is - how large an overdose was it? The report said "toxicity" which could refer to a build up of some kind, although that perhaps doesn't apply to opioids.

Well I have asked him twice to apologise to you - but he's stubborn. To be fair, he's not normally this pedantic.

You said "not addicted." Don't weasel. The autopsy report says "an accidental overdose of the opioid fentanyl," not referring to any "build up of some kind". The latter is incremental, and not sudden and singular, as with an "accidental overdose."

Putting the evidence together, a singular and sudden overdose during a 'cure' process suggests he had a serious addiction problem:

Heavy.com wrote:Prince was scheduled to meet with an opioid addiction specialist the day he died, but the doctor arrived too late, according to the Star Tribune. The day before his death, Prince’s representatives called upon California-based Dr. Howard Kornfeld to fly out to Minnesota to meet with Prince and get him in treatment.

Dr. Howard Kornfeld was contacted late on the night of April 20 and couldn’t clear his schedule to arrive until April 22, the day after Prince passed away. He instead sent his son Andrew Kornfeld, who works as a practice consultant at his father’s treatment facility, Recovery Without Walls, located in Mill Valley, California.

The younger Kornfeld arrived at Paisley Park at 9:30 a.m. on April 21 and was one of the three people who found Prince’s body in the elevator. He also made the 911 call because Prince’s staffers were in too much shock.

No he's not. I like him.
I like you too and in this instance he's been unfair to you.
