An Introduction to Pain

Pain is a signal in your body that something is wrong. It is an unpleasant feeling which is a tingle, prick, ache, sting or burns. It can either be sharp or dull and it may come and go or it may be constant. It may feel pain in one area of the body like the abdomen, pelvis, chest or back or you may feel the pain all over your body.

Joint Pain

Pain can be helpful in diagnosing the problem. If you never felt the pain you might seriously hurt yourself without knowing it and you will not realize that you have a medical problem that needs to be treated.

Pain can be classified as acute and chronic.

Acute Pain: It usually comes suddenly due to injury, disease or inflammation and it can be diagnosed and treated. It normally goes away and it can turn into chronic pain.

Chronic Pain: It lasts for a long time and it may cause severe pain.

Pain is normally not curable but it can be treated in many ways. The treatment depends on the types and causes of pain. There are non-medical treatments like physical therapy, acupuncture or sometimes surgery.  There are medicine treatments including pain relievers like Soma pills and Tramadol pills.

What is Soma Pain Medicine?

Soma (carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxer that blocks pain sensations between nerves and the brain. Soma medicine is used along with rest and physical therapy to treat skeletal muscle conditions like pain and injury. This tablet should be used only for a short period of time like up to two or three weeks since there is no such evidence of its effectiveness in the long term use and normal skeletal muscle injuries are short term only.

Take Soma drug as it is prescribed for you. Follow all the instructions carefully and read all medication guides and instruction sheets to avoid Soma side effects.

What are Tramadol Pills?

Tramadol (Ultram) is a strong painkiller that is typically used to treat moderate to severe pain such as after a serious injury or an operation. Tramadol pills are also helpful in the treatment of long-standing pain where weaker pain killers no longer are effective.

It comes as tablets, capsules or liquid drops that you swallow. Tramadol pain pills work by blocking pain signals from traveling along the nerves to the brain. It is possible to become addicted to tramadol but this is rare if you are taking it to relieve pain and the doctor is reviewing your pain regularly.
