Weekly nuggets of pain science news and insight, usually 100-300 words, with the occasional longer post. The blog is the “director’s commentary” on the core content of a library of major articles and books about common painful problems and popular treatments. See the blog archives or updates for the whole site.

That article earned a freakishly large audience, sustained since publication in late 2014. It was the first of my own tales of serious chronic pain, the beginning of a larger, ongoing story. But my globus struggle did have a happy ending, and so I just gave “A Lump in My Throat” one last good news update about my battle with that condition.
