Whoa

Digg led me to this article about a young man with a condition caused by nerve damage that causes him constant, excruciating full body pain. He has exhausted treatments available to him in the US and his family is trying to raise the money for an experimental treatment in Germany where he will be put into a coma for a week and given massive doses of Ketamine in an effort to "reboot" the nervous system. He has just arrived in Germany and is scheduled to begin the treatment soon. You can read the family's website here.

A girl at my school has this. She recently had a spinal tap put in that constantly sends medicine into her spine
