Mel Collie | Pain and your personal drug cabinet
Many of us take tablets to help cope with pain.
Many of those prescribed drugs are ototoxic, which will mean that your inner ear, your vestibular system gets affected.
Once your vestibular system has issues, your back can feel painful as can your neck and shoulders, as the body is trying to keep you balanced, in homeostasis, which means at its optimum level. In balance.
Now, different things increase and decrease pain, above and beyond taking pills.
Simple things like knowing you are supported and cared for by family and friends, helps the brain secrete happy hormones.
Do you feel like that?
How do you feel when someone gives you a big hug?
Carry that with you 🙂
