Tuesday-Newsday #88


It’s time for Tuesday-Newsday! The Featured Blog Post this week was chosen in honor of Halloween: “The Fright Files: Stories of Medical Mistakes,” from the PFAM Blog Carnival hosted by Oh My Aches and Pains.

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!
