I get a number of science newsletters. I got one today that says that there are two area of the
the brain that register pain. It also says you can modify your pain by thinking. So I thought I would try it. I have a messed up spine. The part in my neck causes pain as it is hard to exercise the neck. I noticed in the past when I was really interested in something, as I often am, my pain went away. When I was bored or just didn't have an active interest in something the pain in my neck returned. So I figure when my neck didn't hurt it is because I distracted myself by using a different part of my brain. Have you ever had that experience? I am very interested in this subject and now my neck doesn't hurt.
