An interview with someone with ADEM, at Help My Hurt

By now, my regular readers know that I have another blog on pain and pain management. Every so often, I’ll let you know here what is going on over there – particularly on Mondays, when I have a new feature called Company’s calling.

Mondays’ post will be interviews or guest posts with/by people who are living with pain or who are working with people who have pain. Today’s post is with someone who suffers from chronic pain because of Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. I had never heard of ADEM before so I had to do a bit of research to understand what she was going through.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorder and Stroke: “Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is characterized by a brief but intense attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that damages myelin – the protective covering of nerve fibers.”

If you would like to read the interview, just visit Company’s calling - a guest discusses living with pain.
