Pain is a disease? Who woulda thunk it!

I’m a pediatrician and anesthesiologist so I put children to sleep for a living (insert laughing audience…hahahaha). And I’m an academic so I put audiences asleep for free…

Bah dum CHING! Who doesn’t appreciate a doctor with a sense a humor.

While combing through chronic pain content for this month’s 12-12-12 project, I stumbled upon an awesome YouTube video.

You gotta check out Elliot Krane’s Ted Talk: The Mystery Of Chronic Pain.

It’s 8 minutes, 30 seconds, of rapid fire knowledge, spreading optimistic hope for the future of chronic pain.

*Heads up vestibular crowd. Ted Talk intro has a rotating, flying all over the place, animation.

Much love,


  1. I’m so glad you posted this! It describes the type of neurological pain that I experienced with this last relapse. My skin felt like I was burned in hot oil and the stabbing pain was relentless. If I or anyone else touched that area, I would go through the roof. I found this to be so informational. Thanks again for posting such great stuff!!!!

    • You are so welcome Michele! I can’t even wrap my head around what that relapse must have been like for you! You are a blessing. I always hear you praising and loving God regardless of what you are physically going through. You are a beautiful lesson.

      Much love,
