For many of the patients who visit our Stoke on Trent clinic, being able to adequately communicate the pain they feel is something that they strongly wish they were able to do. And this is true for many people suffering from chronic back pain. Because pain is invisible, patients may feel unable to express how they physically feel and may fear that others won’t truly understand what they’re going through.
Effective pain treatment doesn’t always come as a “one size fits all” solution and it is important that you are open and honest about your physical symptoms. While it can be difficult to find the right words to describe your pain, talking honestly about it to your family and health professional is the first step to recovery.
If you find it difficult to articulate how you’re feeling, think about starting a pain diary and giving this to your family and health care provider to read. A pain diary can actually provide an even better insight into your condition than simply talking during an appointment as what you write will record a “live” account of your pain experience.
