When should I see a pain management doctor?

We hear this issue all the time: “What are the various kinds of pain?” This is both easy to explain but hard to comprehend. There are five basic characters of pain, but some pain can fit into a hybrid of two categories, which is where the complexity comes in.


The five most typical types of pain are:


Acute pain

Chronic pain

Neuropathic pain

Nociceptive pain

Radicular pain


These pain are self-explanatory you can do little research about the same to understand what is your category. Doing this thoroughly would help in communicating better about the concerned issue.


How do you know when pain is serious?

Most pain is a natural acknowledgment of trauma or illness and doesn’t need an excursion to the doctor. But how will you understand if your pain is a symptom of something severe and asking for immediate medical attention? If you woke up with a sprain in the back because you slept on the chair last night, that’s most likely natural, and only in critical cases, you need a back pain doctor. If you got hurt by a scratch while repairing your house, the associated pain is normal and apparently doesn’t need a doctor’s attention. These are examples of just regular pain for giving clear distinction between the serious and regular.


Acute pain


As a practice, if your pain only remains for the short duration of time you’d foreseen it and you identify the cause, it’s seemingly normal. But if your pain is sharp, lasts more than usual than you believe it should for the injury or ailment, or you don’t know what’s creating it, you should definitely visit the pain management doctor.


Some examples of source-based pain and goes once the reason is healed:


Broken bones.

Dental work.

Burns or cuts.

Labor and childbirth.


Chronic pain


Another example of Chronic pain is pain that is continuous and normally lasts longer than 6+ months. This type of pain can last even after the trauma or illness that created it has healed or been treated. Pain signals abide active in the nerves for weeks, months, or years. In this condition, you might need a doctor, and examples are as follows:





Nerve pain.

Back pain.
