    Have you ever been asked to give your pain rating on a scale of 0 – 10 (where 0 = no pain at all and 10 = most extreme pain you can imagine)? Have you ever tried to work out whether today’s pain is worse than yesterdays? What does a pain rating tell us? I’ve struggled to work out how “bad” my pain is many times, is it the pain intensity that makes it troublesome? Or, in the case of a migraine, is it the quality of the pain that makes it bad (or the nausea?). Health professionals often ask people to summarise their pain experience into a form that (hopefully) we…

  • The Basics Of Dealing With Back Pain

    28 Sep 2014 | 3:16 am
    It does not require constant lifting of heavy objects or dragging things around to bring on symptoms of serious back pain. Even something as small in life as the chair you sit in or the mattress you sleep on, can do damage. That is why you should “pain-proof” your house for any changeable items that are known to cause back pain later in life. Use over the counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen, to help relieve back pain. Taking oral pain medications can allow you to function somewhat normally when you are suffering from a bout of back pain. Be sure to follow…

    Imagine watching a loved one moaning in pain, curled into a fetal ball, pleading for relief. Then imagine that his or her pain could be relieved by an inexpensive drug, but the drug was unavailable. Each day, about six million terminal cancer patients around the world suffer that fate because they do not have access to morphine, the gold standard of cancer pain control. The World Health Organization has stated that access to pain treatment, including morphine, is an essential human right. Most suffering because of a lack of morphine is felt in the poorer regions of the globe. About 90 percent…

Yet after that life-changing loss comes a new kind of suffering: They begin to feel pain in the voids, in the places where their limbs used to be.The phenomenon of phantom limb pain is both cruel and common; some studies have estimated that about 75 percent of amputees feel pain in their nonexistent limbs.

Volkow noted a significant increase in research funding at the NIH for chronic pain conditions, which amounted to $400 million in 2014, up from $279 million in 2008. That is still just about 1 percent of the entire NIH pie, but in an era of shrinking budgets overall, that is no small progress.The increase follows the 2010 Affordable Care Act…

    Over the years, I’ve spotted an interesting trend.  It’s a pattern I see showing up in people’s bodies, in their brains and it’s pervasive in our culture. At the core of this trend is an insidious, yet tiny, belief that keeps people struggling upstream like salmon in a ladder.  It sabotages efforts to lose weight and get healthy, to alleviate pain, and, ultimately to be happy. Shifting this belief from the false to the true is no bigger of a switch from believing that the sun rises and sets to understanding that we’re traveling around the sun on a giant…

I hung my hat on someday, put my head down and worked hard.  I focused on the to-do list, on getting done the things I had to do before doing what I wanted to do. Hello nose, meet grindstone. The dreams, the wishes, the follies of youth were fanciful desires dashed on the rocks of reality. The excuses were plentiful. Not now.  I don’t have the money.  The time isn’t right.  People like me can’t do things like that.  I don’t know if I can. Truth is?  You don’t…
