I stumbled across this great video interview, where Jennifer Grey shares her experience on coping with chronic pain. She says som every useful things about treatment, structuring your coping mechanisms and how to communicate with your doctor to get the best help possible.
She recommends using the Three Rs :
- Research - Get as much information about your pain as possible
- Record - Keep a pain journal, find out your pain patterns & triggers, how does your pain act & react?
- Rehearse - Practice talking about this before going in to your doctors appointment
