Short Circuit Ion Channels Cause Pain

  New research shows that the pain signal may be simply an "electrical leak" from an ion channel.  As previously written there is a connection between the opening and closing of ion channels and electrical polarity charges.  The new finding by a team of scientists at KU Leuven indicates the actual pain message is electrical and is short circuited due to chemical changes in the ion channels.  The ongoing research is showing the chemical and physical relationship of pain and electrical polarities.

    The Artistic Images of Pain

 

   Pain is not fun as everyone knows, but it's really wonderful to see how certain people are able to use pain as a motivator, and make something positive  out of a negative situation.   This web  site, PaintingPain.com, is a wonderful example of pain patients expressing themselves through art.

    The site was inspired by Heather Bolinder ( her painting above)  experiencing excruciating pain and being bed ridden for a year.   You can read her story of how her doctor knew she loved art & expression and encouraged her to "paint her feelings".  The website is a collection of art inspired by the experience of pain.  Very well done.
