Chronic pain affects people of all ages, races, and occupations. Severe chronic pain is a devastating health problem that affects as many as one in ten Americans (more than 25 million people).
Chronic pain disables more people than cancer or heart disease. It costs the U.S. economy more than $90 billion per year in medical costs, disability payments, and productivity. Yet it has received little attention from medical researchers until recently and is one of the most under funded major health problems in the United States. For every person seeking relief from chronic pain, others are inevitably affected: spouses, parents and children, friends, employers and co-workers. Chronic pain can interfere with every aspect of a person’s life: work, relationships, self-esteem, and emotional well-being. Chronic pain can bring a burden of depression, anxiety, frustration, fatigue, isolation, and lowered self-esteem. Pain makes it hard to work, hard to play, hard to get support from others, and hard to live a happy life. Chronic pain shatters productive lives.
So what’s the secret to dealing with chronic pain??? Well, isn’t that just the million dollar question??? Dealing with chronic pain is an on-going challenge. One way to deal with your pain is to get a handle on how bad your pain is on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. You may be asked “How have you been doing lately” and reply “my pain is out of control”. That answer may be true for that particular day, but is it true for the past week or month? Keep track of your pain in a calendar or a journal and don’t be afraid to ask your doctor questions about your pain, your symptoms and how aggressive you can be in treating your pain. The physicians at Catalyst Pain Solution are here to help heal your pain.
