“The first wealth is health" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you’ve experienced a recent traumatic event or have a chronic pain, you may wonder if your discomfort is worth a doctor visit. There are many ailments and illnesses that can be cured by rest, but if you have recurrent or persistent injury pains you should consider seeking professional medical help. If you’re experiencing one or more of the following signs, it’s time to reach out to a physician for consultation.
-If you’ve experienced pain for 90 days without any cause
-If you’ve felt depression in tandem with pain that won’t go away
-When your pain prevents you from sleeping or eating
-When you have recovered from an ailment but the pain remains
Some occurrences of discomforting pain are manageable and need monitoring before escalation. If a chronic discomfort or pain is moderate, your physician may call for you to rest or potentially adjust your sleeping or eating patterns and record any noteworthy difference to give insight to the possible problem. To clarify, these sessions of reflection and monitoring should always be overseen by a doctor, so be sure to consult your physician first.
