Television Helps with Pain?

Monday, August 21, 2006

A pediatrician and neonatologist at the University of Siena in Italy will have an article published next week in the British journal Archives of Disease in Childhood regarding how children suffered less pain watching television when stuck with a hypodermic needle than those who were not. The cartoons they were watching "were even more comforting than Mom". Link

I guess it helps not to focus on ones' pain. If only there was a technique to help with this. Oh wait a minute there is.(sorry for the sarcasm but science loves to do studies on the obvious)

I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect.
-Oscar Wilde

Medical terminology can cause confusion at the best of times. If there is a word you do not understand all you have to do is double-click on it and the definition will appear! Don't forget to drop me a line by email at with your comments, questions‚ recommended resources‚ concerns‚ & especially your experiences with clusters. Or come find me on my Facebook Profile to add me as a Friend. Whether you are a supporter‚ care-giver or sufferer. I would love to hear from you!

*Please do not use this information for self diagnoses. Writing about my experiences with chronic cluster headaches & epilepsy is a good outlet for me. Consult your Dr. with any kind of headache or chronic pain you may have. The 3rd party links on my site I have found to be a good resource to me over the past few years & dearly hope they will benefit you as well.*
