Primarily caused by asbestos exposure, mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the lining of the lungs or abdomen and in some cases the lining of the heart. Symptoms of the cancer resemble less serious conditions, which usually contributes to a late diagnosis.

The Mesothelioma Center offers assistance through reading materials, a Doctor Match program, and Patient & Family Advocates that are available to discuss support options and answer your questions.

 Fibromyalgia Symptoms

 Fibromyalgia is not well understood by the medical community. It is known, though, that certain people are more at risk of developing fibromyalgia than others. The symptoms of fibromyalgia can include everything from widespread pain to fatigue; menstrual pain to sleep disturbances. Because of the variety of fibromyalgia symptoms, there are a number of associated conditions linked to fibromyalgia.

 Fibromyalgia Network

 

Fibromyalgia produces widespread pain, disturbed sleep, and exhaustion from head to toe. Although the muscles hurt everywhere, they are not the only cause of your discomfort. Instead, the diffuse, body-wide symptoms are greatly magnified by malfunctions in the way the nervous system processes pain.

WHO Narcotic & Psychotropic Drugs Guidelines for Assessment

 

The Pain and Policy Studies Group (PPSG) is pleased to announce the availability of a World Health Organization (WHO) publication aimed at improving availability of opioid analgesics in the world, titled "Achieving Balance in National Opioids Control Policy: Guidelines for Assessment."

 

This document provides 16 guidelines that can be used by governments and health professionals to assess the national opioids control policies and their administration of any country to determine if they contain the provisions, procedures and cooperation that are necessary to ensure the availability of opioid analgesics. The guidelines are derived from the international principle of "Balance" in drug control policy. This principle, which is carefully and extensively documented in the publication, asserts that governments not only have an obligation to prevent drug abuse, but also to ensure the availability of opioid analgesics for medical purposes, and further, that efforts to prevent drug abuse and diversion must not interfere with the adequate availability of opioid analgesics for patients’ pain relief. The importance of cooperation between regulators and health professionals is emphasized.


Since the Guidelines were published in 2000, the PPSG and the WHO have used them to encourage cooperation and evaluation of national policy between health professionals and narcotic regulators at several international regional conferences.
