    Hi everyone, I just read in a Danish newspaper that doctors at the biggest hospital in Denmark have experienced a huge increase in back, arm and shoulder pain. A pain specialist is named in the article who is on part-time after being on sick leave for several months. They think that the reason for the increase in pain is the introduction of the new digital system that forces doctors to use the computer during the day more often than before. There seems to be a clear correlation between introduction of the new system and increase of pain cases. So, in short, they blame it on the amount of computer work these doctors have to do. It is a bit tragic that even a pain specialist doesn't see that there also might be a connection to the emotions. Especially in this case. The newly introduced digital system is hated by almost everyone. It produces mistakes and chaos (patient's data get missing, wrong medicine etc.). So, my guess is that these doctors are really pissed off but not allowed to rebel against this system. Indeed they are powerless in this case. They just have to cope. This would be a case of mass TMS :) No, not really funny of course!!

    You're right, it's the perfect storm, lots of pressure and conflict. And they don't see any hope ☹️
