Lady Gaga Silent Pain No More

Lady Gaga’s chronicles her struggles in her career and with chronic pain. Her vulnerability , honestly and unpredictable future with chronic pain shows others suffering the pain epidemic they are NOT alone.

Lady Gaga’s New Netflix Documentary Hits Home To Those Who Suffer From Chronic Pain.

Fibromyalgia appears to make that problem worse, and being a pop star in chronic pain certainly doesn’t seem easy. One scene shows her having her makeup done for a performance while sitting in a doctor’s examination room.

Pain doctors who specialize in treating fibromyalgia say that the disorder is under-treated and that its sufferers have been stigmatized as chronic complainers.

In general, fibromyalgia patients complain not just of chronic pain but of many other symptoms, Dr. Wolfe said. A survey of 2,500 fibromyalgia patients published in 2007 by the National Fibromyalgia Association indicated that 63 percent reported suffering from back pain, 40 percent from chronic fatigue syndrome, and 30 percent from ringing in the ears, among other conditions. Many also reported that fibromyalgia interfered with their daily lives, with activities like walking or climbing stairs.

“I use the word ‘suffer’ not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring,” she wrote. It’s not the first time she’s been doubted or criticized about something that her body has gone through. When hip surgery made her cancel her 2013 tour, some folks accused her of faking her injury because of underwhelming ticket sales.

According to the National Institutes of Health, 80 to 90 percent of those affected are women, and since it has traditionally been difficult for women to be heard in our culture, women with this illness may have to speak a little louder in order to really be heard.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue (feeling tired). People with fibromyalgia have pain and tenderness throughout the body.

People suffering fibromyalgia may also have other symptoms, such as:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Morning stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Painful menstrual periods
  • Tingling or numbness in hands and feet
  • Problems with thinking and memory (sometimes called “fibro fog”).

Stars in pain:

  • Montel Williams: multiple sclerosis
  • Sinead O’Connor: fibromyalgia condition.
  • Jillian Michaels: suffers from endometriosis and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
  • Marcia Cross: suffered from debilitating migraine at 14 years old, which negatively affected her life and work.
  • Elizabeth Taylor: Born with scoliosis, which can cause an unnatural curvature of the spine, and she suffered back pain for years.
  • Morgan Freeman: Diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
  • Kathleen Turner: rheumatoid arthritis—an autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks the soft tissue & joints.
  • Jennifer Grey: suffered chronic pain for years after a neck injury from a 1987 car accident.

PRP Therapy Faster Healing For Athletes

PRP Therapy Healing of Chronic Pain

PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy), is a non-surgical treatment that uses the patients own blood to initiate healing and repair of damaged tissue. The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries. The patients own platelet rich plasma is injected into the damaged, pained joint, muscle, ligament or tendon. PRP treatments allow for faster healing of soft tissues.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP Therapy) Popular with Professional Athletes

  • The Angels’ Garrett Richards chose injection treatments, not surgery, and now he’s back.

  • Alex Rodriguez used PRP therapy after he underwent hip surgery in 2009. … Blood is made up of white blood cells, red blood cells, plasma and platelets. Platelets help the blood clot and also secrete growth factors, which are healing proteins.
  • Stephen Curry had Platelet-Rich Plasma for a grade 1 MCL sprain during Game 4 of the team’s first-round series against the Houston Rockets in 2016.
  • Rafael Nadal, Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, Zack Greinke and Hines Ward — who have tried the treatment.
  • British footballer John Terry even shared an Instagram photo of himself receiving the treatment.
  • Los Angeles Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell got a platelet-rich plasma injection to alleviate pain in his left knee. After having the injection on Nov 23, he missed 11 games to pave way for full recovery.
  • Philadelphia 76ers Jerryd Bayless got his PRP injection to heal his wrist.
  • New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his injured right shoulder.

PRP Common Areas of Use

  • Knee Injuries and Osteoarthritis
  • hip and spine injuries
  • shoulder pain and injury
  • Strained rotator cuff tear
  • pelvic pain
  • back and neck injuries
  • ankle sprains

Marijuana medical health benefits

Medical marijuana is offered to patients in many different forms. It can be smoked, vaporized, ingested in a pill form or an edible version (brownies, cookies and chocolate bars). Medical marijuana is considered a schedule 1 drug by the FDA (federal Drug Enforcement Administration) meaning it has a high potential for abuse. There have been a number of studies in the United States on the effects of medical marijuana as a therapeutic medicine for patients that suffer chronic pain.

Marijuana contains 60 active ingredients known as cannabinoids. The body naturally makes its own form of cannabinoids to modulate pain.

Cannabinoids

  • THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)TetraHydroCannabinol is a psychoactive compound contained in Cannabis, which contributes to the euphoric, or “high” feeling that is generally associated with its use by most patients. THC has analgesic (pain relieving) effects, neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory qualities, helps stimulate appetite, relieves nausea, and also contributes to other beneficial effects.
  • CBD (Cannabidiol)Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound within Cannabis which reduces the psychoactive effects of THC. With qualities ranging from anti-inflammatory, to anti-anxiety, anti-arthritic, analgesic, anti-convulsive and much more, CBD works similarly to THC, but has been shown to modulate its psychoactive effects. Strains rich in CBD are less common than THC rich strains, and many are just now being developed and released specifically for the Medical Cannabis community as an alternative form of this medication.
  • THCA and CBDAThe A indicates the carboxylic acid form of the molecule which is directly produced by the plant. These compounds decarboxylate with heat to form their neutral counter parts described above. These compounds are powerful anti-inflammatory agents, but only so when consumed orally, and the plant has not been heated before consumption. These medicinal compounds are most often consumed through juicing or making tea with the plant’s flowers and leaves.
  • CBNCannabinol is a degradation product of THC which can lead to feelings of muscle control loss, and other generally uncomfortable physical effects. CBN isn’t readily found in fresh flowers and is often an artifact of improper analysis.
  • TerpenesTerpenes modify the effects of THC and the other cannabinoids, and impact the medicinal effect of the strain. Terpenes are also responsible for some of the smell and taste characteristics. Terpenes are being used to fingerprint and identify each strain in the hopes that we can begin to understand their physiological impacts.Below are some of the highlights of what is generally known so far.
  • Pinenes: Pine odor, bronchodilator that opens the lungs to more THC absorption. It also increases focus, self-satisfaction, and energy.
  • Caryophyllene: Sweet, woody, clove taste responsible for anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects through CB2 receptor activation.
  • Linalool: Floral smelling, is believed to provide some anti-cancer effects and is known to cause severe sedation.
  • Limonene: Has a citrus scent and may possess anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti depression abilities.
  • Myrcene: Effects intake of THC by brain cells to increase the overall effects of THC when ingested together.Marijuana has been found to be effective in reducing neuropathic pain, or pain caused by damaged nerves. Opiates, such as morphine, aren’t effective at treating that sort of pain. Other studies show that marijuana, in addition to opiates, led to dramatic levels of pain relief. Cannabinoids plus opiates are synergistic in their relief of pain.The American Academy of Neurology found that certain forms of medical marijuana (only in pill or oral spray form) can help treat some symptoms of pain (pain related to spasticity, including painful spasms, and painful burning and numbness) and overactive bladder.

    According to a report released earlier in January by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), that makes a lot of sense.

    One of the strongest conclusions of the report, which provides basically the most comprehensive, up-to-date look at what all available research on cannabis tell us, is that there is conclusive or substantial evidence (in general, enough to make a firm conclusion) that cannabis or cannabinoids, found in the marijuana plant, can be an effective treatment for chronic pain.

    After researching the effects of medical marijuana, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, acknowledges that medicinal plants (including marijuana specifically) aren’t a new idea: The medical and scientific communities have been studying medical marijuana since the 19th Century, and marijuana was actually used to treat neuropathic pain until 1943.

Athlete injury – When to see a doctor

Sports Injury: Seeing a doctor vs. ignoring the pain

When is it time to see an athlete injury doctor? Tennis players, swimmers, cyclists or runners run the risk of suffering tennis elbow, an aching shoulder, sore knees or pain in your heel. Whether your a professional athlete or a weekend warrior working out and physical performance is a way of life that you cherish. Seeing an athletes doctor would probably be better than toughing it out. Seeing a sports medicine specialist ensures that your being seen by a physician that understands running injuries.

Individuals that compete in marathons, triathlons, and swim meets are no strangers to sore knees, pulled hamstring, heel or hip pain. The red flags that suggest an athlete seek medical attention immediately include chronic pain that worsens, pain through the night, joint inflammation or bruising, and joints that become unstable. If your not getting better naturally, seeing a doctor would be in your best interest. Sore knees are quite common among runners. Typically Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation (RICE) would be the natural choice for any athlete experiencing pain and inflammation.

Pain or tenderness in a muscle or tendon can be temporarily be relived with cortisone injections. Small labral tears in the hip, rotator-cuff tears, rips in the tendons can worsen over time. Athletes that suffer chronic aching painful joints should seek medical attention from a sports medicine doctor to determine the cause of the injury. Runners suffering knee pain, may be a result of a tight iliotibial band, (common overuse injuries among runners) which locks the knee, straining the gluteus muscles.

Doctors that effectively treat athlete injury do not have them come in and just lay on an exam table. Your doctor after reviewing diagnostics tests, will determining a treatment plan or injury prevention. Treatment plans may include pain relief Injections, at-home exercises, physical therapy, or diet.

Pain Doctors Who Listen

In Pain? Want Your Doctor To Listen?

Patients suffering chronic pain have feelings and deserve respect from their doctor. Studies have shown that doctors tend to monopolize a patients visit by doing all the talking and just not listening. Taking the time to hear what a patient is feeling can give way to a less painful and much easier recovery.

One patient describes the overwhelming anxiety that hits him while suffering pain from repetitive overuse.

” I am missing days at work. I sleep, well try to sleep really, all day in the dark. I have no appetite. The pain is unbearable. Depression has set in. My neck pain radiates down my spine.”

These patients have seen good medical doctors and have tried all types of medications to manage their painful symptoms.

What were they missing? A physician willing to take the time to to sit down and listen to their fears and problems brought about by their current condition.

Patients soon come to learn that physiatrists, who are medical doctors, have helped them more than their own family doctors just by listening.

Physiatrists who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation see hundreds patients suffering from anxiety due to chronic pain. The specialty areas of PMR include: Sports medicine, Neuromuscular medicine (disorders of the peripheral nerves and muscles – sciatic nerve pain), Pain medicine, Spinal cord injury medicine.

Take Dr. David Delman a board certified pain specialist in both Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine and is a member of the American Academy of Pain Management. Dr. Delman has a history of working as emergency department doctor at Stony Brook University Hospital, New York, NY.  Now with clinics in New York City and Brooklyn, Dr. Delman is able to reach out to patients both mentally and physically at his own clinic, DHD Medical.

The clinic provides a non surgical pain relief focused services with an emphasis on healing and solving problems such as pain, depression, anxiety, insomnia and fatigue areas that a medical doctor may not take the time to really delve into.

“The objective at our clinic is to reach out to patients that are being passed up on in areas that other doctors may not focus on depression, insomnia, etc… The objective to recovering from pain and injury is to listen to our patients.”

Pain and the problems it causes can wear you down over time and affect your mood. Chronic pain causes a number of problems that can lead to depression, such as trouble sleeping and stress. Disabling pain can cause low self-esteem due to work, legal or financial issues.

DHD Medical and pain clinics like it believe that the ultimate objective is to treat pain and greatly improve the patients quality of life.

Chronic pain in ones back and neck, hip, or shoulder can be agonizing, causing patients to have sleepless nights or difficulty walking. Patients often think they will never be well again. They’ve tried going to yoga, chiropractors, holistic services; nothing has worked.

After a comprehensive interview with the patient, Dr. Stella P. Mansukhani, in Washington Heights, New York offers manual therapy techniques that make a huge difference in patients suffering pain.

Manual therapy, or manipulative therapy, is a physical treatment primarily used by Dr. Mansukhani to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability. Patients can count on physical and occupational therapy, life coaching and fitness evaluation and instruction, with Dr. Mansukhani.

New York Heights Medical, P.C. understand patients who are feeling hopeless due to their pain. “Our objective at New York Heights Medical, P.C. is to ensure that our patients live healthy lives, and regain healthy relationships.” say’s Dr. Mansukhani.

Dr. Delman and Dr. Mansukhani are but two of a network of pain specialists in New York that Listen to their patients. These select pain specialists understand that they have a commitment to the patient to listen and ask the right questions on how pain is effecting their relationships, work, mental and physical lives.

You the patient deserves to be heard. You the patient deserves respect. You deserve pain doctors who listen!
