This guide will explore these treatment options, empowering you to have informed discussions with your primary care provider about potential referrals for managing your pain effectively.

Suffering From Severe Chronic Pain?

Recognizing severe chronic pain and knowing when to seek specialized care is crucial. Here are some signs and symptoms that indicate it might be time to ask your doctor for a referral:

  • Persistent pain lasting more than 3 months
  • Pain that interferes with daily activities and quality of life
  • Difficulty sleeping due to pain
  • Limited mobility or function due to pain
  • Pain that doesn’t improve with standard treatments or over-the-counter medications
