Got Cramps? Grab Your Cellphone

Next time you have cramps, pull out your smartphone.  A new Web-based program is helping women to combat chronic pain.  It's not really done with smoke and mirrors, but sort of.  The program pairs therapists with women constantly in pain for one face-to-face session,  then having them document their pain, and their feelings about it, for personalized feedback from the therapist, according to a story at fiercemobilehealthcare.com.

Users rate their pain on a scale from 0 to 52, with 52, of course, being wrenching (I assume).

Not sure how much this really helps but since a mind-body connection has been proven, guess it couldn't hurt.

While only women were being studied, it could certainly be used by men, too.
