18 Pain Words With Psychological Meaning
I’ve made several posts, well at least two or three that have lists of pain type of symptoms to fibromyalgia. The way this list is different is that theses word have emotion or psychological meaning to them for the sake of diagnosing.
Look again at the list of description pain words. Doesn’t all pain become exhausting? What about the words heavy, dull and gnawing? Isn’t there a degree of overlap? What about throbbing, aching and pounding? There is a difference in these words but not much. I went to a pain clinic and had to fill out a form where you had to check which descriptive words applied to your pain.
I complained to my PA and he said that those word has a psychological component used to evaluate both the type of pain and the psychological state of mind related to the pain patient. He wouldn’t elaborate any further.
I made this pain in case it helps you in some way communicate your pain to a health care professional. I don’t know if it will mean much but it’s worth considering. Those of us with chronic pain and fibromyalgia can use all the help we can get.
Keep in mind this is posted for your consideration. I am not a health care professional and do not assume any liability. I am passing this on to you for your consideration.
