    Explaining pain?

    Does anybody else have trouble explaining pain to Drs & others? I sometimes find it hard to put my pain into words. Doctors seem to have a select number of categories for pain. Burning, stabbing, pounding,pins & needles, shooting, sharp, dull, ache. Sometimes none of these apply and sometimes all of them apply. I've found people as well as Drs are dismissive if you can't fit your pain in one of their boxes. #Gastroparesis , #ChronicMigraineSyndrome #DiabeticNeuropathy , #occipital neuralgia, #Fibromyalgia ,#PrinzmetalsAngina , #costrochondritis , #hiatlhernia , #AcidReflux ,
