FAQ: When and how should I seek help
for my pain?

If you suffer from a painful condition, know that you are not alone. More than a quarter of Americans cope with an acute or chronic pain problem on a daily basis. As pain tolerances differ from patient to patient, sufferers of acute or chronic pain should carefully examine how discomfort is affecting their overall enjoyment of life and their ability to function. If you have experienced any of the following, it may be time to consult with your primary healthcare provider or – if deemed appropriate – request the assistance of a pain management physician:

  • Pain that has persisted beyond a period of 4 to 6 weeks
  • Pain from an unidentifiable source
  • Pain that causes a negative impact on mood, as well as a decrease in mental and physical abilities
  • Pain that prevents or interrupts sleep
  • Pain that is accompanied by feelings of numbness, a loss of sensation, or fatigue

When and how should I seek help for my pain?

For many, broaching the subject of pain is an uncomfortable matter. As a result, sufferers of chronic and debilitating pain commonly downplay or hide their discomfort for fear of being perceived as weak or mentally unstable. Pain however, is real and deserving of professional assessment and when left unaddressed, can take both a physiological and psychological toll on an individual’s well-being. Consequently, the pain management doctors of our state-of-the-art pain center strongly advise that patients bring their discomfort to the attentions of their primary care physicians. Should traditional modalities of treatment prove ineffective, ask your doctor for a referral to a pain management specialist, like those of the Pain Management Centers of New England. With a comprehensive service offering of diagnostic and treatment procedures, the Pain Management Centers of New England practice helps patients find the relief and quality of life they deserve through the application of minimally invasive and innovative pain management treatments.
