Is Your Chronic Pain All in Your Head? - Pain Management Center

 

"The unfortunate fact is that this patient is far from unique. According to the National Centers for Health Statistics, more than 75 million Americans report experiencing pain — more than the number of people with diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined."

"Patients will often get the message that the doctor can't find anything wrong, so they will just have to live with their condition," says Dr. Clarke, who is also the author of the book They Can't Find Anything Wrong!. "It is enormously frustrating for a patient with real pain not to know the cause, and they may even question their own sanity."
