Pain is Personal

To be in pain means to hurt or suffer. Your pain may be something you feel in your body, such as aches, tightness or muscle cramps, or a feeling related to your emotions, your spirit or your mind. In any case, the way pain feels is unique to the person with pain.


Understanding your pain

It is important for you to report pain to your health care provider or hospice team. Understanding your level of pain helps them know what treatments to try and whether the treatments you have tried are working for you.
