Tuesday-Newsday time! Today we look at stories from these subjects: Chronic Pain, Patient News, Neck and Shoulder Pain, RSD/CRPS, and Osteoporosis. The last item is from the category Living with Pain. It’s another witty piece by Sue Falkner-Wood called, “Chronic Pain Lessons From Your Thanksgiving Turkey.”
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!
