Tuesday-Newsday #80

[Sorry for the late posting - the Labor Day Holiday pushed back my schedule.]

It’s time for Tuesday-Newsday! The featured blog post this week is “Small Pleasures Count as Big Ones in a Life of Chronic Pain” by Sue Falkner-Wood.

Don’t forget: Next Monday, Invisible Illness Week kicks off with lots of articles, inspiration, and the Free Virtual Conference featuring seminars that pertain to different aspects of living with invisible illness. You definitely shouldn't miss it! Click those links to find out more.

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. As is the case with any health info, ALWAYS get your doctor's opinion first!

If brand-name prescription medicines cost you as little as generic pills, which would you choose?



The finding might one day lead to new drugs for organ-transplant patients and people with autoimmune diseases such as lupus and Crohn's disease


The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) has published practical guidelines to assist clinicians in assessing treatment efficacy in patients who experience a fracture while on medication for osteoporosis.
