What is pain? Tramadol for you !

in Pain

When we're born, we pause helpless for a month or so and then begin the process of exploring the world. In this, pain is a vital part of the learning process. We knock into hard objects and fall. Only when we understand cause and effect can we move around safely. If parents and authority figures are responsible, they teach us some degree of acceptance. Life cannot stop just because of a little pain. You have to pick yourself up and go on with what you were doing. This also builds self-confidence, a sense we can work through discomfort and pain to produce the results we want. Although parents are right to have a general protectiveness, all children should be allowed to develop a tolerance for pain. Should the day come when they are involved in accidents or fall more seriously ill, they should be psychologically prepared. It does no one any good if they collapse in a heap, weeping and wailing we should make the pain go away. For better or worse, we need pain to survive.

Put simply, pain is a warning system when something goes wrong with the body. Where and how we live is also full of potential dangers. Without pain, we might not immediately notice if we pick up something that's too hot. Either way, we must know to get medical attention, or quickly drop the hot object and then get medical attention. The problem with this wonderful system then becomes all too obvious. When we've done the right thing and got medical attention, we cannot turn off the pain. It's like when one of those burglar alarms starts ringing in the property next to ours and no one comes to switch it off. The noise can drive you nuts. But we don't want to completely disable the system. Really we want to reset it so that it will sound the alarm again if there's a new problem or the old problem gets worse.

Let's say you have a broken leg. If medical science was able to target one set of pain receptors and switch them off, would that be a good thing? You might go from pain when moving to no pain. Except the pain is there to warn you if the way you are moving may cause more problems. If you suddenly have no pain, you might try walking as if there was nothing wrong and make the injury worse. In the general situation, having some pain is more useful than having no pain. The only time making all the pain go away is useful is when your condition is terminal. In such sad cases, there's no point in retaining any of the pain warning system. Shutting it all down is the merciful thing to do.

For everyday living, Tramadol is the best compromise you can find. In cases of moderate to severe pain, it reduces the level of pain you feel. You should be able to go on with your life confident that, if you brush against something too hot, the pain will make you flinch away. Equally, if the pain surrounding the original site of injury grows worse, you know to get further medical help. Tramadol is the best way of managing pain.
