This week’s our subjects are Chronic Pain in Women, Patient News, Cancer, Arthritis, and a Study Seeking Pain Patients in Philly. To finish off, I’m linking to a newsletter by Jan Sadler of PainSupportUK called, “Doing Too Much” about how we often push ourselves too hard and don’t listen to the warnings our bodies give us.
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!
