I have been going to a pain clinic and have enrolled in a Mindfulness Stress and Pain Management course. My Dr. there suggested it. I have this odd feeling he thinks I don't really need it because I am pretty aware of what is going on and have a healthy attitude towards my pain. A part of me thinks he hopes that will rub off on some of the other attendees.
But I do hope to get something positive from it.
From what I can find on the internet it uses a lot of meditation to help a person focus on reducing stress and therefore pain. I know the more stressed I am the harder it is to deal with the pain.
Anyone have any experience with this?
