Final Answer


Pain is experienced differently by different people. The experience of pain and how people react to it varies with culture, age, and co-existing medical or mental health conditions. To add to the complexity of the pain phenomenon is the way people respond to treatment of pain. Persons with the same diagnosis may receive nearly identical treatment but respond quite differently to such treatments. This makes it especially important to assess pain carefully and to develop an individualized plan of care for each patient.

Think about a painful experience in your life?

Suppose I have chronic pain experience (Chronic pain is generally an ongoing problem that may have no specific


 Feelings in pain situation:

● I had little or no control over their pain.

● I experienced breakthrough pain.

● Had feelings of depression.

●  A negative impact on my ability to enjoy life.

● Having difficulty concentrating.

● MY energy level was negatively impacted by pain.

My pain management technique:

Avoid slouching when sitting or standing. Shoulders should be back and relaxed and the spine straight. When standing the abdominal and gluteal muscles should be slightly contracted. When sitting feet should be flat on the

floor with the knees level with the hips. Chairs should have backs that provide firm support for the spine. Avoid sleeping on the stomach.

Same situation with different culture

There is a number of pain medications used to deal with both acute and chronic pain. Opioids such as morphine, codeine, methadone, and fentanyl can be extremely safe when used appropriately at the correct dosage. There is a risk of tolerance and dependence with opioids.
