Types of pain
Chronic pain: is a pain that last for more than six months. Arthritis pain is a perfect example of chronic pain. Arthritis pain requires sufferers to be on analgesics on a regular basis. Arthritis pain can be considered a chronic pain because it will not go away unless the source is treated or cured. Unfortunately, patients who suffer from Arthritis pain have to live with it forever.
Acute pain: is any type of pain that lasts less than six months. Acute pain may be an indication of an injury. When the injury heals the pain usually goes away.
Localized pain: is a type of pain that affects only certain part of the body. Swelling pimples can be an example of localized pain. Swelling pimples cause pain when touched just on that spot where the pimple is. Localized pain are often easily treated with medications and other methods. Systematic pain is a type of pain that you feel all over your body. An example of this type is a serious infection that has spread throughout the body or nerve problems that increase the activation of pain receptors in the brain.
Nociceptive pain: in this type of pain specific pain receptors are stimulated. These receptors sense temperature (hot/cold), vibration, stretch, and chemicals released from damaged cells. You can describe the pain felt like burns, frost bites, fractures, sprains, having too much acid in the stomach, heart attacks, and other related pain.
Somatic Pain: is one type of nociceptive pain. this type of pain can be felt on the skin, muscles, joints, bones and ligaments. Another term for this type of pain is musculo-skeletal pain. The pain receptors are sensitive to temperature (hot / cold), vibration, and stretching (in muscles). The pain caused by lack of oxygen in the ischemic muscle cramps, is a type of nociceptive pain. Somatic pain is usually strong and localized – touching or move the affected area, will make the pain worse.
Visceral Pain: is another type of nociceptive pain. This type of pain is felt in the internal organs and important body cavities. Cavity is divided into the chest (lungs and heart), abdomen (intestines, spleen, liver and kidneys) and pelvis (ovaries, bladder and uterus).
The pain receptors – nociceptors – meaning inflammation, stretch and ischemia (lack of oxygen). Visceral pain commonly refers to some type of back pain – pelvic pain generally refers to the lower back, abdominal pain to the mid-back, and thoracic pain to the upper back. The types of pain mention above, not necessarily all, may be successfully treated with tramadol. Tramadol can successful alleviate Nociceptive and non nociceptivse, localized, systemic, acute and chronic pain. The mu opioid receptor and activity of serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibition may take the physical pain is neuropathic. So when ever you have some type of neck pain, cancer pain, arthritis pain, back pain and nerve pain, Trmadol will always come through and alleviate the pain. Tramadol will be able to relieve moderate to moderately severe types of pain. A pain that is well beyond moderately severe, patients may need much stronger medications. Taking more than the recommended dosage is not recommended, because Tramadol is addictive and you may become dependent on it.
