Chronic pain article...
Sep 8th, 2018 at 8:59pm
 
This....from the magazine "Brain and Life"...formerly "Neurology Now"

While clusterheads are not in "chronic" pain...we ARE in our own form of "intermittant chronic pain"....and this article resonated with me in several areas. It took many years but I finally figured out that HOW I perceived AND reacted to the pain of CH...and my general attitude to life...and life with CH.... made nearly as much difference to me as O2 and all the multitude of meds. See especially the last section "Turning off Negative Thoughts".

Best

Jon

Good find Jon, it is a really well written article.

It did miss one very important piece of advice which we always tell people here which is to find a doctor with the right skills and experience to get a confirmed diagnosis, which in turn leads to appropriate treatments.

When it comes to chronic pain, just as with CH, doctors don't learn too much at medical school and it needs someone with the appropriate skills plus experience to make a difference.
