Our stories these week come from these subjects: Product Warning, Pain Rx, Patient News, and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The final category is Living with Pain which features a a blog post by Sue Faulker-Wood titled, “The Public You Versus the Private You in a Life of Chronic Pain.”
Let Me Know: If you’d like me to watch for articles on your pain condition, just drop me a note in the comments section below.
WARNING: My goal is to provide the most up-to-date news I can, which you can then take to your personal doctor and debate the merits of before you try it. I do not endorse any of the docs, treatments, info, meds, etc., in anything I post nor can I guarantee that they are all effective, especially not for everyone. I always include the citation, source, or website so you know where it came from. As is the case with any health info, ALWAYS get your doctor's opinion first!
