Four Books About Chronic Pain You Should Read

Posted on August 08, 2020

Thousands of members of MyChronicPainTeam connect with one another and read each other's stories to gain perspective and validation about living with chronic pain. Another way to discover how to live better with chronic pain is through books written by people who are also living with it. We combed through member book recommendations and collected a list of the most popular.

1. Reverse Therapy: Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Related Disorders by John Eaton PhD
This radical body-mind healing book has been effective in treating unexplainable conditions such as CFS, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, IBS, and more. Reverse Therapy is explained in an easy and engaging read.

2. Radiant Relief: A Case for a Better Solution to Chronic Pain by Brendon Lundberg and Farley David B. MD
While science has grown to understand the physiology of pain significantly over the last few years, our treatments have remained the same. The opioid epidemic has shown us that a new solution is necessary immediately. Lundberg and Farley demonstrate a medicine-free way to manage life with chronic pain.

3. You Don't Look Sick!: Living Well With Chronic Invisible Illness by Joy H. Selak
Chronic pain is invisible, yet sometimes unbearable to the person living with it. This book covers topics ranging from health insurance to coping with loss of function, and is applicable to anyone living with a chronic condition.

4. Sick and Tired: Empathy, Encouragement, and Practical Help for Those Suffering from Chronic Health Problems by Kimberly Rae

When half of America suffers from a chronic condition, it is crucial to gain support and information on the road to achieving peace and acceptance. Rae's book is a must-read for anyone living with or caring for someone with a chronic condition.

Check out some book recommendations and favorites from Members of MyChronicPainTeam:

"Fans going, loose clothes, darkened rooms and water nearby after reading several articles on inflammation, chronic pain, chronic illnesses, and hot weather."

"My book is fictional, but the medical accounts are all things I have gone through. It is a book about a woman who endures PTSD, chronic pain, and depression. It chronicles how she deals with her challenges and tries to return back to her faith that she left behind when she was injured. It is titled "A Bruised Reed."

"Doing a lot of reading and listening to things concerning new interest."
