Tuesday-Newsday time! Today we look at stories from these subjects: Chronic Pain, Pain Rx, Patient News, Migraines, and Sickle Cell Anemia. The final category is Planning to Help Manage Pain and the piece I've chosen is titled, “Surviving the Holidays with Chronic Illness.” It’s a two-page article with tons of practical advice for managing your time and activities so pain won’t ruin your celebrations.
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, and meds in anything I post nor can I guarantee 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!
