    LONDON — IN 1926, Virginia Woolf published an essay on pain, "On Being Ill." Isn't it extraordinary, she observed, that pain does not rank with "love, battle and jealousy" among the most important themes in literature. She lamented the "poverty of the language of pain." Every schoolgirl who falls in love "has Shakespeare, Donne, Keats to speak her mind for her; but let a sufferer try to describe a pain in his head to a doctor and language at once runs dry." Where are the novels or epic poems devoted to typhoid, pneumonia or toothaches, Woolf wondered? Instead, the person in pain is forced…

    Interest in pain is on the rise at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), said Nora Volkow, chief of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, welcoming participants to the 9th Annual NIH Pain Consortium Symposium, held May 28-29, 2014, in Bethesda, US. 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…

  • Sex Question: Will Sex Hurt Less Over Time?

    hotopehu
    14 Jul 2014 | 9:53 am
    Dear Dr. Kate, I’ve had sex three times and each time it has hurt. Is this something that will change over time? Sex shouldn’t cause you pain. If you’ve been to see a gynecologist, and had a normal pelvic exam, there are a couple of possible explanations. One is a condition called vulvodynia, which means “pain in the vulva.” Does it hurt if your partner puts a finger inside you, or if you use a tampon? Often, women with vulvodynia have pain on any contact to their vulva, not just intercourse, so they might feel discomfort even when they wear tight jeans or pants.

Ideology has come to be associated with extreme left and extreme right political or social factions.  To personalize the word, give it a little sting, the targets of this word…

  • Prescription Rates For Painkiller Vary Widely By State : Shots - Health News : NPR

    3 Jul 2014 | 2:20 pm
    There's no getting around the fact that the abuse of prescription painkillers is a huge problem in the U.S. Prescription drug overdoses now kill more people each year than car crashes. But the overdose risks vary quite a bit depending on where in the country you live. One reason is that how often doctors prescribed the drugs, such as Percocet, Vicodin and generic opioids, varies widely by state. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed a commercial database of drug prescriptions looking for patterns. Nationwide, there were 82.5 prescriptions written for opioid painkillers…

For all that modern medicine has learned about disease and treatment, it's alleviating pain that still lies at the heart of the profession. And in recent years, the notion of treating "pain" as its own entity has been rising to the forefront in medicine. Pain management now has its own journals, conferences, clinics, and specialists, and pain relief is sometimes…

    No matter how prepared you are for your performance, or if your audience is two people or two hundred (or two hundred thousand), it’s easy to succumb to nerves at the last minute. When the moment arises to step out on stage, the pressure is on. There are no do-overs, no backsies and certainly no time for mistakes. You’ve got to deliver, and you want it to be flawless. But nerves can get in the way of you communicating your message. The more nervous you are, the more likely you are to forget what you were supposed to say, miss a step or flat out freeze.

That meant home baked honey whole wheat bread, bean soups that never saw the inside of a can and slow cooked meals that simmered for hours on the stove, wafting the scents of rosemary and tarragon through our house.

She’d been standing quietly while I palpated her muscles, indifferent to the pressure after a lifetime of primping, pampering and spiffing before competitions. Until I hit that spot.

    As active individuals, we put our bodies through a lot each and every day. Sports, outdoor activities and sitting for extended periods of time can cause inflammation in our joints.

As a professional tournament fisherman, most of the fishing I do is catch and release. However, I do like to keep certain fish for the dinner table!

When do I know I have to get it checked out? The majority of adults who experience serious low back pain or neck pain cannot recall a specific accident, injury or event that brought it on. They often say that their pain developed over time, increasing slowly. They…
