I wanted to share this video because I think it makes some really interesting points. Also, I related to some of it. I believe the brain does play a role (sometimes significantly) in chronic pain. This doesn’t mean there are not underlying physical problems – many times there are – but the brain’s pain amplification system can certainly make pain much worse! Anyway, if you have chronic pain problems, this video is worth checking out.
Does anyone know of an online community/message board for those with autoimmune diseases? I have Googled and clicked and all I seem to find is a general health board with an arthritis sub-forum (that is usually not very active).
Is anyone out there interested in joining such a community? I am in the beginning stages of this disease and I do not have as much experience as others, but I do know how to set up a message board, and I would be willing to do so if others were interested.
