Making the most of Doctor's Visits
Since all pain experiences are unique, be prepared to communicate your pain experience effectively with your healthcare providers.
Share details about your current stressors, triggers, relationship with pain, and any proof you've collected about neuroplastic pain.
Communication and Support Systems:
It's common for those dealing with chronic pain to feel irritable when high pain and anxiety levels.
However, you will feel most supported when you can identify your nervous system state, apply mindfulness techniques to soothe the nervous system, and authentically communicate your point of view. Speak with intention, practice self-love, ask for help when needed, and set boundaries.
Setting Goals with Chronic Pain:
Organize your goals into small action steps.
Next, identify the energy level, pain, and mood that each action step requires. For example, tasks that require less physical effort, like admin, can be assigned to higher pain level days. Experiencing wins, whether big or small, can help boost self-esteem, decrease stress, and form healthy neural pathways to reduce neuroplastic pain.
Benefits of Collecting Pain Evidence
An evidence sheet allows you to have solid proof of stress-induced pain and symptoms. Whenever your pain decreases or disappears during a time that you are focus on something else or enjoying time with friends, this is evidence that your pain is NOT structural. Also during flare-ups, track physical sensations, location, type, intensity, anxiety levels, and activity you were doing.
Keeping track of these details will give you a deeper understanding of your pain triggers, what causes them, and the best mind-body-based techniques that make you feel better.
