Pain Is Not An Easy Thing To Share

Prof. Dr. Khoo Suan Phaik, Oral Pathologist and Oral Physician

Pain Is Not An Easy Thing To Share

If your body is hurting, you are going to seek help from a doctor. But you may find yourself in an awkward situation: You feel the pain but you struggle to describe the terrible sensation to your doctor. It’s difficult to convey how much it hurts and descriptions like “burning pain, needles poking in my skin, an ant bite” mean different things to different people. How can we better communicate our pain to our doctors?

Prof Dr Khoo Suan Phaik, oral pathologist and oral physician, joins us to answer that question.
