Podcast Episode 7
Persistent and chronic pain is something that a large number of women live with from a variety of causes: migraines, fibromyalgia (Lady Gaga is a sufferer), cancer, arthritis, or, in my case, pelvic mesh that has gone horribly wrong.
What I’ve come to realise is that persistent pain is very much a hidden disease, mostly because the sufferers look okay physically.
Everyone on this program has, on more than one occasion, been told that it’s all in our heads and we ought to get over it. It’s bad enough to be on the receiving end of that when it’s a friend or acquaintance that says that, but when it’s a close family member, it makes it so much worse.
The really interesting thing is that science is now showing that this kind of pain – persistent, chronic pain – really is all in our heads, and is actually caused by a nervous system malfunction.
