Is chronic pain a learned condition? Can it be unlearned?

"When Schubiner talks about fibromyalgia and fatigue, he’s not so far outside (one edge of) respectable medical opinion. But he goes further and lists migraine headaches, heartburn, carpal tunnel syndrome, tinnitis, postural orthostatic tachycardia, repetitive stress injury, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy as likely Mind-Body Syndrome as well. And most explosively, he says the condition explains almost all pain."\r\rhttp://slatestarcodex.com/2016/06/26/book-review-unlearn-your-pain/

  • Is this dude saying almost all pain is psycho-somatic? Someone needs to hit him upside the head with a 2x4 and see what he thinks then.
