Questions To Ask Your Doctor About Pain Relief

« Previous


The more you understand, and the more the doctor knows about your pain, the more likely treatment will work.

Consider asking such questions as:

  • Can you please describe back for me your understanding of the pain I am experiencing? (To help assure the two of you are on the same page).
  • Do I need to see a specialist for my pain?
  • Will pain medications help me?
  • Can I take nonprescription pain relievers in addition to prescription pain drugs?
  • Besides taking medication, what else can I do to manage or lessen my pain?
