Inside Chronic Pain: An Intimate and Critical Account (The Culture and Politics of Health Care Work)

Illustrates the profound gap in public awareness and understanding about living with daily pain and just how horrible it can be–Heshusius comes closer than many others in recounting her nightmare by taking readers with her experience as she journeyed through the health care system maze—going from doctor to doctor, specialist to specialist, and from one pain management treatment to another. Typical for many of people with pain, this trip is not a pleasant one. She shares lessons learned and provides insight on how to try to navigate a health care system fraught with misunderstanding, misdiagnoses, mistreatment and downright abuse along with fragmentation and dysfunction of a system which misunderstands the science of pain and fails to support the philosophy of quality pain treatment.
