12. You failed to pull the string in your initial commentary.

Had you put your second post first, it would have made a bit more sense in the first place.

I thought TENS units did the trick for some, as well--not just opioids. Jerry Lewis swore by his, and he was in very bad shape. You need a prescription for them, and they are FDA approved.

Nowadays, there are other options: http://www.tensproducts.com/TENS-Unit_c_61.html

They are also doing work on this score, http://pain-topics.org/pdf/OpioidAntagonistsForPain.pdf but that's still an off-label usage, AFAIK.

And for the record, no one is "poking fun at chronic pain." Get off that horse and take the chip off your shoulder. If you'd read the link in the first place, instead of making assumptions, you'd know that. The question--like it or not--is entirely valid. Americans do have the right to know if their leadership is drugged--a leader's right to medical privacy stops when he or she is making decisions under the influence of quite possibly an overabundance of drugs of any sort.
