Assessment of pain


Iam so happy to read about pain, and i myself at this time am in pain? sciatica or pulled muscles..ok now i am learning a lot about pain how we can asses patients especially those who have cognitive problems that un able to express what kind of pain they're must be terrible that we are unable to help them, i myself i felt so desperate what to do w/ myself when the excuriating pain occurs this morning, i rang the surgery and ask what can i do, and the receptionest, said she will tell my gp, and after 15 minutes maybe earlier, gp phone me and ask me what happen, and i told him so he precribed me a analgesia and told me if it get worst to let him know, so I staggered to go to the chemist got my medecine, am still in pain but bearable, thanks God! i am so glad to have read this article, and i got so much to add when am assessing patient 's pain or documenting it.
