0 Video: The mystery of chronic pain

In this video from TED, Elliot Krane works with children in helping them with neuropathic pain and complex regional pain syndromes - nerve-related pain that continues from an injury long after the original accident occurred.

He practices at Stanford Hospital and Clinics and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, and here is one story of how he helped a young girl stop the tremendous pain that made even a feather-light touch on her arm agonizing.

This may or may not relate to those who suffer from persisting symptoms of Lyme disease - either way, this story is something worth watching and considering in our challenges to understand and stop pain.

You might also want to read the comments on the original page for this video - the information found there may help you or someone else you love in tracking down another or an additional cause for pain:
