S3 EP6: The Science Behind Chronic Pain with Melissa Farmer


Did you know that you can be diagnosed without a scan or other tests revealing anything to be wrong?
Did you know that there’s science available to determine the diagnosis without symptoms that can be tested?
I know that’s a huge statement, but there are times where doctors diagnose patients with “diagnosis of exclusion.” Take IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Symptoms may present as one diagnosis, but after rigorous testing, the only diagnosis left would be IBS. Happens all the time. Did you know there are diagnosis that one of 10,000 or 50,000 people would have?
Melissa Farmer joins the show to talk about this and other chronic illnesses and how they present themselves in different patients. She is the Co-Founder of Aivo Health where their mission is to eradicate chronic pain by empowering people with science. In this episode, you will hear valuable information and insight into the science behind the diagnosis and what people can do to still live very productive lives while living with chronic pain or illness, not suffering from it.
