Doctors & their brutal refusal to treat pain stands revealed.

I suffer from debilitating "nonspecific" chronic headaches. Doctors have spent four years trying, and failing, to slap a label (diagnoses) on this pain. Because it is diagnosed as nonspecific, most physicians refuse to provide me with a specific, nonnarcotic pain medication that time and experience has proven extremely effective on a regular basis. because my headaches currently remain undiagnosed, my chronic and extreme pain is regarded as suspect. The reality of actual severe pain is dismissed by doctors as imagined, psychosomatic, hyperchondrial, or "drug-seeking behavior" on my part. For the most part, for over ten years, I have not received proper, adequate or humane treatment for actual, real and terrible pain. This book has given me the key to solving this critical state of medical affairs when it comes to negligent or non-existant pain treatment that is crucial and required by myself and countless others who suffer needlessly. A concise, witty, inteligent and most importantly, an invaluable book on the subject is available. This is that book. My highest recommendation.

Validate your pain

I think this book is right on. I have had chronic back pain for years and every doctor tells me it is in my head, or I need physical therapy. If I could do the exercises they want you to do in therapy, I would nt need a doctor. The worst thing is finding someone to believe you and who is willing to do all that is possible to help. Doctors are too quick to just blow you off when it comes to chronic pain.

Validate Your Pain-Exposing the Chronic Pain Cover-Up

Run, limp, order it online- but DEFINTELY obtain this book ASAP if you are a pain survivor, work with pain patients or if a loved one suffers from chronic pain. This book is outstanding and sincere. I use it as an invaluable resource and I use it for emotional support. The approach is right-on-target and empowering. The utter contempt pain patients face on a daily basis from the medical community, indifferent (sometimes frustrated) and ignorant doctors and nurses, acquaintances, friends and family is appalling and barbaric. I was recently referred to a pain clinic associated with a respected university and I went relunctantly. The two doctors I encountered were utter clowns. I knew more about neurology and medicines applicable to my situation than they did- which is terrifying. To think that people, in the most horrific of pain have no choice but to turn to these "Keystone doctors" when they are in the most desperate of situations is truly of nightmarish implications. As anesthesiologists they were already discussing "shots" before I even gave them my pain history. The doctor who took the history "zoned-out" in the middle while I related my history. I did not fit neatly into any of his boxes. As a teacher it is my job to know when someone is not paying attention. I had to resist the urge to tell him "to sit up straight and pay attention". Nor was he even following what I was saying (that is also my job to determine if a listener understands.They could not diagnose me, recognized I was bright and well-informed, and was not going to stand for any of their nonsense. They could not get me out of there fast enough and kept looking for one feeble excuse after another. Six years of unrelenting, daily pain that never goes away, is getting worse and they said I was doing "just fine". I was butchered by a endodontist who is still out there "practicing".I can barely hold down a job. The most mundane task is a major event. They couldn't wait to get me out of there which was fine with me. I am certain they could not even pass a basic logic class.This book explains a myriad of procedures and covers countless medications. Drs. David and Chino brought to my attention a medication that is actually helping me. I have scoured the Internet in search of help but their book is packed with information I may never have found. The information is compassionate and up-to-date. My only regret is that I live in the Midwest and cannot further benefit from the expertise and empathy of these forthright, pragmatic pain specialists.But I cannot thank them enough.BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!

If you suffer from Chronic Pain this is YOUR Book!

Before reading this book I can honestly say I was lost.. Lost in a maze of Doctors, lost in a drudgery of medicine, lost in the hope for a better life. This book has touched my life in so many ways, giving me clear answers to nearly all my medical questions, providing me with a roadmap through the prescription maze, arming me with information and showing me that there is hope. This books lighthearted and comical diction makes it the first real medical book that Ive actually enjoyed reading, and laughed out loud along the way. Anyone that suffers from Chronic pain, I urge to read Validate Your Pain and equip yourself with a powerful tool.
