Dr. Conrad Murray

Jail Is

KILLING ME!

Dr. Conrad Murray says his body is in worse shape than one of those zombies from the Michael Jackson 'Thriller' video ... claiming he's suffered serious injuries behind bars ... and he wants out.

TMZ has obtained a recording of a jailhouse phone call between Murray and a friend ... in which the Doc says he was rushed to USC Medical Center earlier this week after fearing he was suffering from deadly blood clots in his legs.

"It progressed until the leg felt numb ... it was painful all to the top of my foot ... around the medial aspect of my ankle and all the way to the mid-calf."

Murray -- who was a licensed doctor before he killed Michael Jackson -- explained, "Blood clots are relatively risky ... especially if they propagate from the legs into the lungs to cause pulmonary embolism which can result in permanent disability or even death."

Ultimately, doctors who are currently licensed determined there were no blood clots and returned Murray to his cell ... where he says he continues to suffer.

"I have had to lay in bed for most of the day because there is no way to elevate my feet. One of the recommendations by the doctor is to keep my legs elevated and to increase my activity which is impossible in a 5x7 cell."

During the call, Murray gripes that his feet have become so swollen, "I may never be able to wear a boot again." So much for line-dancing after his release ...

Murray then issues a veiled threat -- "I don't want to be permanently hurt by any condition in here ... because if I am, I will not let it rest."

He also complains about pain in his right shoulder ... and as we previously reported, he came down with a ferocious case of diarrhea earlier this year.

His lawyer has even sent a letter to the L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca, asking the jail for more humane treatment -- comparing Murray's situation to a dog in a small cage.

Jail -- it ain't the Hilton.

KARMA IS A BEETCH! Now he knows what Michael went through unable to sleep, unable to rest, a sick man; and still putting a brave front to the mounds of financial responsibilities he had while looking for help (not for free).
Instead he found someone who didn't care posing as a friend. Murray knew Propofol was going to kill Michael little by little. Now he knows what is like to be sick with no one on your side!
He might as well bring with him everyone who was in the conspiracy to get rid of Michael, he is the only one paying for all that and he might even die before he gets out!

Guess what else besides blood clots are dangerous? Greedy doctors who ignore their oaths and wind up killing their patients due to incompetence.

Murray is searching for any way out, trying to use his medical background to come up with non-existant conditions that other doctors will immediately prove as false...
And it looks like Murray wants to make money by suing the jail...

Murray just needs to take personal responsibility for what he did, sit down, shut up, and serve his paltry sentence.

This is Murray 's usual act of being a Doctor. He uses terms he may have heard whilst dreaming about being a doctor, like referring to his leg as his 'lower extremity'. Does this make him sound more like a doctor? This is the guy who obtained gallons of anaesthetic for a perverted junkie, killed him and had his show trial. I wouldn't trust him to change the sheets. Meharry Medical College must be so proud to have turned out a physician who is easily qualified to be serving shrimp and grits with a side of boiled peanuts. This needs to be investigated right now.

BETTER TO BE ALIVE & IN JAIL CALLING YOUR PEEPS THAN HAVING AN OVERDOSE OF PROPOFOL ADMINISTERED DOCTOR IN A PRIVATE HOME WHNE THE DOCTOR KNOWS HE CAN ONLY USE IT IN AN OFFICE SETTING!!

Why didn't they examine his head as well, guess that's where he has problems, not in his legs, shoulders, stomach, etc...

Murray doesn’t want to be in jail, it’s not nice there, he doesn’t have enough space, the food isn’t good enough, and he’s feeling imaginary pain in constantly changing body parts every other day... poor Conrad Murray, poor, poor Conrad Murray!

He ought to stop feeling sorry for himself, and finally start blaming himself, and not others, for the situation he’s in right now. A normal person would feel deep remorse and guilt, instead of this everlasting self-pity.

WTF they allow this disgusting murderer to make phone calls first off??!!! Then he is NOT a doctor it's a MURDERER!!! Who by the way does not even know CPR!!!! And he wants even to explain medicine arguments??!!! The murderer "does not want to be permanently hurt"??!!?? A disgusting murderer who has no respect for human life!!! He is as usual inventing illnesses to try to get out of jail but no judge is impressed by a murderer sociopath mentally disturbed and moreover TRUE doctors said he is not ill so STFU and think about rotting in jail as he does deserve before rotting in hell!!!
