We all get upset from time to time—some of us more than others. Whether we’re sad about the loss of a loved one, angry at friends or family, or fearful about the state of the world, it often feels good to let it all out. That’s because sharing our emotions reduces our stress while making us feel closer to others we share with and providing a sense of belonging. When we open up our inner selves and people respond with sympathy, we feel seen, understood, and supported. But “sharing” covers a lot of different modes of communication. Are some healthier than others, over the long run? Science sugge...

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of chronic pain in pediatrics is substantial and is estimated to be around 20%. Orchialgia remains difficult and problematic to treat. Mental health diagnoses such as anxiety and depression are also significantly associated with chronic pain. Following consideration and implementation of steps for all these concerns, a diagnostic block and microsurgical denervation led to successful resolution of chronic testicular pain in a pediatric patient.PMID:34291422 | DOI:10.1007/s12630-021-02072-5
