    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Unbelievable find!

    Most of you know the fondness I have for the book Pain, the science of suffering by Patrick Wall MD. I bought a couple more copies to replace those I gave away. One of the books is used and an earlier print. Inside I found it to be signed, "to Malcolm Graves with admiration from Patrick Wall."

    I paid less than $6 for as close to a dream as I could find. I often wanted to correspond with doctor Wall, however he passed in 2001. Seven months after I was injured. Dr. Wall was considered the leading expert on pain. He pioneered the gate control theory and with Ronald Malzack MD invented the TENS unit.

    My pain doctor said it is the best book a patient has ever brought him and "it should be required reading."
