You have a right to have pain treated. Untreated pain can limit eating, sleeping, and activity. Tell your healthcare provider where and how much you hurt. It may not be possible to relieve all the pain. But your healthcare provider can help you reach a pain level you can live with.

Your Role

Tell your healthcare provider about the pain and your health history. Be sure to:

  • Mention all the medications you take. This includes any you buy over the counter. Mention any herbs, teas, or vitamins you take, too.

  • Mention any pain relief techniques you use, such as massage or meditation.

  • Measure pain as directed.

  • Follow your treatment plan. Tell your healthcare provider how well treatment works.

As pain is reduced, you'll feel better. Less pain means less stress on your body and mind.

Your Healthcare Provider's Role

Your healthcare provider will help you measure and manage pain. You will be told about your pain control options. These will most likely include medications. Options like physical therapy and acupuncture may also help.

Note for Family and Friends

It may be hard to understand how your loved one feels. But the pain he or she has is real. You may not be able to stop the pain. You can help in other ways, though. Spend time with your loved one. This helps distract from the pain. And help him or her take medications on time, if needed.
