What should I bring to my first appointment?


Having your first appointment with any doctor can be nerve-racking and you will need to remember that being upfront and honest with them will be the key to success when it comes to alleviating your chronic pain. You will need all documentation about your pain, previous injuries and surgeries, and anything more that will be helpful such as x-rays, and a list of medications currently taken or taken in the past. It may be helpful to have someone attend the appointment with you to help express your thoughts and concerns as it may be difficult to make sure it is expressed clearly. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your appointment if you feel rushed or late it may set a negative tone for your appointment. Try and be as descriptive as you can, does Does it hurt to walk? Is the pain burning, dull or sharp? Does the pain interfere with cooking, independence, and overall happiness in your life? Don’t be afraid to ask questions or take notes.

Make sure you have a goal in mind like returning to work or managing your pain without medication. It is also beneficial to tell your medical professional about the things that help such as medications, or physical activities such as yoga or swimming may help you.

They may start you on medications such as anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants, or anti-depressants, and they may try procedures such as radiofrequency ablation where heat or chemicals are applied to a nerve to stop pain signals. They may also use visco-supplementation where fluid is injected into the joints, used mainly for arthritis pain.
