As a chronic pain patient, staying updated on what's happening in scientific research and getting the latest tips on pain management is crucial for your quality of life. That's why you can't trust just one single doctor to give you all the answers, nor you can you trust this blog, or any online newsletter to give you comprehensive and unbiased updates.
One of the things you can do is to get a subscription to Pain Pathways, which is the World Institute of Pain's quarterly magazine for acute, chronic and cancer pain management. I've read it and I love it. Unfortunately I haven't found anything like it here in Sweden, but I've been able to order back copies shipped here by the help of their excellent staff.
Reading this kind of publication may inspire you and serve as a very important reminder: You are not alone! 30% of the adult population, or 70 million people in the US suffer from chronic pain at some point in their life. Link up and learn more of how you can get a better life with the health you have.
