New Book About Chronic Pain

We get so many calls from patients who are having problems with chronic pain. They can't find a pain management doctor (there's 1 for every 25,000 patients, so no wonder they're scarce). Their doctor won't prescribe serious pain medication, or all of a sudden, their doctor stops prescribing. Nobody believes them, and since pain is subjective, it's hard for them to prove they are suffering.

Well, if this review is any indicating, a new book by Melanie Thernstron really makes the case for treating pain like a disease. The author is a patient, and her personal story runs throughout. Sounds like a great treatment of a very tough topic. Jennifer
