    2 Pain Lectures - Understanding Chronic Pain to influence its severity

    An awesome dr friend of mine recorded 2 lectures specifically for me after he heard about the challenges I was having with nerve pain. I have bad nerve pain that I have been able to manage MUCH better after understanding the nature of chronic pain.

    There is a huge component of pain that is under our control. Emotion and anxiety play a giant and clinically proven role in the influence of our pain experience. If you're like me and you like to understand the mechanics of things so you can control them, I HIGHLY recommend these lectures.

    Also, let me know what you think. This was done pro-bono and my friend would love to hear some feedback

    Part 1:
    Part 2:

    Enjoy, they helped me greatly.

    These are good talks with a lot of really good information about what pain is and isn't. I would really recommend that anyone with pain should listen to both. Turns out that much of the intensity of central pain is exacerbated by anger and fear.

      They described me to a T, but I knew I had those issues (mental health therapy, which unfortunately hasn't ever helped. Same with antidepressants.)

      Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.


        Interesting. I wondered if anyone had tried Alpha -stim for pain? I've heard and read some good stuff. Link below:

        Someone has offered to lend my husband her Apha - stim. If it works then they can be rented here in the UK (they are quite expensive). I think we'll give it a go but I'm a bit wary of anything that uses an electrical current, even if it's a small one!
        Anyone on here tried one? Thanks.
