Pain is more than just a feeling of discomfort. It can affect the way you feel overall. It may also lead to mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. The amount of pain you experience can tell your doctor a lot about your overall health.
There are two main types of pain: nociceptive and neuropathic. Nociceptive pain is a nervous system response that helps protect your body. It makes you pull your hand back from a hot stove so you don’t get burned. Pain from a sprained ankle forces you to rest and give the injury time to heal. Neuropathic pain is different, because it has no known benefits. It may be a result of misread signals between your nerves and brain or spinal cord. Or it could be because of nerve damage. Your brain interprets faulty signals from the nerves as pain.
Make an appointment with your doctor if your pain: hasn’t gone away after two to three weeks is causing you stress, anxiety, or depression prevents you from relaxing or sleeping stops you from exercising or participating in your normal activities hasn’t improved with any of the treatments you’ve tried Living with chronic pain can be emotionally and physically challenging. Many types of treatments can help you find relief.
