Hello – I’m Professor/Dr. Brian Rothbart. When I interview patients for the first time, they usually relate stories of not being understood or not being believed by previous healthcare providers.”No one believes my pain is as bad as I say it is,” they often tell me. “They act like it’s all in my head.”In one sense, pain is all in the head. That’s where the nerve signals transmitting pain are received. That’s where pain is actually perceived.That makes pain a very personal, internal experience, one that can’t be seen or shared by others. And that can make it difficult for people to believe in or even relate to your testimony of chronic pain.I spent more than 40 years in clinical research, working to understand the source of chronic pain and how to cure it. And I’ve been a chronic pain patient myself, having suffered from agonizing chronic pain for years until I discovered how to cure it.When patients come to me, I know what they’re going through. I know what its like to go from doctor to doctor, clinic to clinic, hoping to finally find appropriate care and concern.
I know the feelings of hopelessness and despair that accompany chronic pain, especially when people don’t believe you or really listen to you.
People suffering from chronic pain are carrying enough of a burden. They deserve to be treated with respect, kindness and consideration. If you aren’t getting that from your current healthcare providers, you have the right to demand it. Sometimes people, even doctors, need to be reminded that they’re not treating just a back or a knee but a whole person with feelings and emotions.
If you have found some personal reality in my story, I hope that you will read further on my site and take hope that you can be helped to get your life back.
To your healthy and happy future,
