Seeing Pain New approach to diagnosing and treating nerve damage Chris McCurdy TEDxUM

When I was a young childI lost my favorite uncle to alcohol abuse. It made me wonder why does this happen? How can someone be consumed by a substance that's around us all the time? So, I made it my life's missionto become a ug expert, and I went to pharmacy school. I went to pharmacy schoolto understand what it is about ugs

that can make us heal or can hurt us. When I waspharmacy school, I found out I felllovewith the research. Not only did I falllovewith the research I felllove with this passionto edue others. And so, knowing that,I had to move forward. I had to move forward with my eduion so that I could carry those thingsout of my future;

and I went on and earned a atein medicinal chemistry; that's ug design not designer ugs. (Laughter) That enabled me to move forward and really pursue some of the basisof ug abuse and addiction. Here I am now, a professorof medicinal chemistry and pharmacology. And I've dedied my careerto solving problemsug abuse and actually findingbetter pain mediions

because after all, painis the most common reason that individuals seek medical care. It's also the most common reason that we end upwith ug abuse and addiction. Moving from there, I've been ableto establish a laboratory here, at the University of Mississippi, where we've done a lotof groundbreaking work that I'll get toa little bit to move us forwardthose endeavors.

Now, how many people here have had to seek medical treatment that resultedpain prescription? Yes, most all of us. How many of you ended up getting something like morphine, or codeine,or Hyocodone, or Oxycontin? Yeah. Any of you had to take that for more than 2 or 3 weeks,maybe a month, maybe a couple?

If so, there's a high likelihoodyour body became physically dependent. So why does that mean? What do we mean when we talkabout physical dependence and ug abuse? Let's define these thingsa little more clearly. So ug abuse is simply the concept that you take a ug out of the contextthat it was prescribed. So, every now and then,all of us are guilty of taking a little more ibuprofen,or something, than it says on the bottle.
