Why We Hurt: The Natural History of Pain
Frank T. Vertosick, Jr. (au)
Pain is a universal reality, something that affects every one of us. As much as we detest it, however, pain remains curiously indispensable. Here, Vertosick explores this paradox, using pain as a lens to give insight into how our bodies function. Using stories of patients who suffer different kinds of pain, he explains how pain evolved & why it functions the way it does. Beginning with his own battle against severe migraines, he goes on to explain other common pain syndromes -- back pain, angina, cancer pain, arthritis, childbirth, & carpal tunnel syndrome. Provides a mixture of med., history, anthro., drama, inspiration, & practical advice. Helps us understand the value of our pain & shows what it takes to battle pain, & reduce our suffering.
