Yes No
    Have you been hurting for longer than 2 months?
    Does your pain keep you from sleeping properly?
    Is your pain poorly controlled by the current treatment program?
    Does your pain make you feel depressed?
    Is your pain making you take time off from work?
    Is your pain interfering with your activities of daily living or relationships?

If you checked Yes to any one of these questions, you should ask your doctor about seeing a pain specialist such as Dr. Jutla. Untreated chronic pain may lead to an established permanent pain pathway in your body and lead to other health problems such as high blood pressure, fatigue, physical or mental inertia, weight gain, insomnia, depression, anxiety, inability to enjoy sex or interaction with loved ones, and relationship stress because you feel that you are a burden.
