Rest for the Weary: Pain Relief for Diabetics with Painful Neuropathy
Date:11/5/2013

WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Way back in the 17th century, John Donne, English attorney, cleric and preeminent representative of the metaphysical poets, wrote: "Sleep is pain's easiest salve, as doth fulfill all offices of death, except to kill."
