How to Describe Pain to Your Doctor

Dr. Christo Discusses How to Describe Pain to Your DoctorDr. Paul Christo explained specific ways in which people suffering from pain can more accurately describe their pain level to their doctor for the redbook article, “What Doctors Tell Their Friends About Pain” by Lisa Mulcahy. Dr. Christo said it’s helpful when a patient gives their doctor an example of how much the pain is affecting them with a statement such as ‘The pain stops me from biking 20 minutes a day—I can’t do that anymore.’ He said this kind of information gives your doctor the most accurate picture of your pain-related condition.
