Fix my pain, Please!

No new posts

If it were as simple as saying "Fix my pain, please!".

Chronic Pain becomes further complicated as it frequently begins as a side affect as a result of an injury or illness, but continues over time to become a primary medical condition in of itself.  Despite the multitude of treatment options, Chronic Pain many times eludes any "fix" from even the most experienced medical expert using state-of-the-art medical procedures and techniques.

Share your thoughts based upon your own experience as you struggle to "fix your pain".
