NOBODY HERE IS A VERIFIED MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL While reddit does not explicitly ban medical advice in their ToS anymore, it is best to avoid giving medical advice over the internet in general. Soliciting or giving medical advice is strictly forbidden in this subreddit. Sharing your failures or successes concerning your experiences with treatments is fine. Remember, we're all strangers here. You don't know how your advice might affect another person's well-being, no matter how well your intentions might be.
DO NOT POST ABOUT YOUR PAIN IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN A DOCTOR RECENTLY. If it's bad enough that you feel the need to post about it then it's probably bad enough that you should go to a doctor.
DO NOT POST SURVEYS, STUDIES, OR RESEARCH PROJECTS WITHOUT CLEARING YOUR STUDY WITH THE MODS FIRST!!!
All posts soliciting or giving advice about how to obtain specific (or groups) of medications will be removed. Do not post anything regarding the misuse or abuse of your medications. Do not post ads for medications. You can and will get banned for this.
We will remove posts soliciting or giving advice about suicide. Posting about how you feel is quite alright, but please don't ask for advice about how to end it all. Sometimes, simply venting helps!
We have an IRC chatroom at freenode #rchronicpain Come on in and say hi!
