    What an interesting coincidence.  My sister and I are African American.  My sister has two chronic health conditions that cause her a great deal of pain.  She was in so much pain on Sunday that I had to take her to the emergency room.   She told me that doctors and nurses never believe her when she tells them how much pain she is in.  I told her about the study regarding Blacks and pain medication the panel mentions above. After the third time she told the ER nurse that her pain was at a level 10 (some hours after we got to the ER), she finally got something that was adequate.

      Aww man – I don’t use it often so I didn’t see it.  I’ve switched to the no Ad version.  Hopefully it flips over before 3 PM.  If not, follow the twitter feed.
