Leader News: Prescription Drugs

(Moonee Valley Leader, Wednesday, September 6, 2017 Story by Carmel Green)

“We’re such a pill-popping nation – we’re taught to reach for the tablet and soldier on”

CONSCIOUS of her posture and sitting down for too long, artist Soula Mantalvanos would perch on a fit ball while working at her desk.

One day the ball burst and she fell on to the concrete floor, sparking more than a decade of pudendal nerve pain.

Prescribed opioid Tramadol and antidepressant Lovan, Ms Mantalvanos said at one point she was taking a cocktail of medications and, when the pain didn’t subside, her doctor doubled her dosages. Continue Reading

Takes more than an app to explain pain

Author:

Body in Mind posted this excellent research from Marina Pinheiro and Gustavo Machado about the abundant health apps out there; What App is Good for My Back?

Pulse+IT also recently posted their story, There’s a bad app for That.

There are various purposes health apps are made. From where I’m standing, my app was never a promise to solve a health problem – that’s impossible.

I’ve been asked many times why Pain Train isn’t available as an app. Pain Train currently is fully functional as a website on any desktop or hand-held device.

The two main agendas of Pain Train, are: Continue Reading

Finnish Documentary Maker Seeks Real Life Stories

Author:

I’ve been contacted by Sarah Hudson, Media and Content Producer for Say What, a Finnish media company who is seeking to make a realistic documentary about Australians who are battling with opioids.

It’s an issue that requires serious address so please, if you are able to share your story to help reach others – no matter where they may be in the world – please read below and contact Sarah directly.

Finnish TV doco series Say What is visiting Australia and would like to cover some real life stories that go deeper than the shiny tourist images of Sydney.

They’d like to interview and spend some time with someone who is currently struggling with opioid dependency:

“We’d like to hear from you if you’re living that experience at present, or if you know someone who’s willing to share their story”

All correspondence is confidential.

Please email Sarah Hudson directly at ozmediasirkus@gmail.com

Pelvic Pain: The Ultimate Cock Block

Author:

Dr. Susie and I have established quite a fab connection over the past year or so.

We teamed up to help people with chronic pain with our own various ways – Dr. Susie providing her professional knowledge (and awesome down to earth approach), and I providing my patient input (Dr. Susie loves my Pain Train).

I jumped at Dr. Susie‘s invitation to write the foreword for her book, Pelvic Pain: The Ultimate Cock Block – in fact it was an honor and a pleasure.

From what I hear through my site, men have a more difficult task navigating chronic pain and speaking up about their issues – yes, much tougher than we have it ladies!

So to my dear male followers, don’t hesitate! You can get this book right now on Amazon and be on your way to managing pelvic pain.

And to Dr Susie, thank you so much for writing this much needed resource and for inviting me to be a part of it.

You woke up one morning expecting a hard on, but instead, all you felt was dick pain. You’re thinking maybe it was a weird sex position or that sports injury from the other day. ‘‘No biggie, it’ll go away,’’ you think to yourself. Continue Reading

Your Pace Yoga: new videos

Author:

Dustienne Miller

This is exciting. I’m republishing my post from way back when I just began to manage some yoga again.

I have maintained Dustienne’s program – albeit a small 20 minute portion – it’s still mammoth for me.

Dustienne has now produced more pelvic specific yoga videos and although I might not dare try anything new just yet, I had to share these with you all as they sound great:

Listen to your bod… go slow!
