    just happened across a wonderful article on line. No web page. I was seraching yahoo; Got on a site that is entitled:

    Pain, The Disease by Melanie Thernstrom

    It is amazingly well written and says everything we want to say about pain. It validates our pain and need for treatment.

    Also mentioned is that Maine has legislation requiring aggressive pain treatment and CA and other states are about to legislate.

    She recommends two books: Elaine Scarry-The Body In Pain

    and Fisherman - The War on Pain.

    Interestingly, and I should have recalled this from Latin class, PAIN derives from the Latin Poena, which means punishment!

    I highly recommend you try and find this article. I originally typed in One sided Body Pain on Yahoo search engine and her site page popped up(not just about my search title). It is one of the best and very reassuring and uplifting if scary.

    Love Anne C

    I have the Scott Fishman book The War on Pain and it is excellent.
