Jared Updike shares his story about his experience with pain in this episode. He received diagnoses of psychogenic pain, central sensitization, myofascial pain syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Jared wrote a terrific blog post ("Doctor Masseuse"), which I discovered via Paul Ingraham's post on PainScience.com

Jared Updike is Los Angeles-based software developer who learned about chronic pain and fatigue at the school of hard knocks. He hopes other sufferers can become their own health advocates, learning to manage their issues through patient education and their own informed, considered experimentation. He dishes out life advice and writes about technology, photography and his programming projects at his blog, Jareditorial, at jared.updike.org. You can follow him on Twitter @JaredUpdike.

Jared shares his experiences -- including successes and struggles -- and we discuss some of the interesting science about pain. Jared shares his thoughts for health care providers and for patients struggling with pain. I also found out that Jared has been to 56 of the 59 National Parks!

We discuss many resources about the science of pain. For more information, consider the following:

If you have a story to tell as a patient, provider, or both, then contact Zach Stearns on Twitter @zachrstearns or Dave Reed @DReedPT.
