Pain is nothing just more than a feeling of discomfort when doing any work or going for work. Several times it might affect the way we feel overall during our daily lifestyle routine, it may also lead us to several kinds of mental health conditions, like ADHD(attention hyper deficit disorder), stress, depression, and anxiety. The amount of pain you experience is enough to tell your doctor a lot about your health condition very well. The acute pain happens all of sudden, usually in a matter of days or weeks, or months which tends to resolve within a few weeks. Talking about chronic pain it is ongoing. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pain is considered chronic when it lasts beyond 3 monthsTrusted Source. Pain-relief methods range from at-home treatments and prescriptions to over-the-counter (OTC) medications and invasive procedures, like surgery.

According to a report, about 100 million or more Americans and more than 1.5 billion people worldwide live with chronic pain. Most Americans with it say it's tough for them to sleep well at night and concentrate during the day. They also say it affects their energy levels and their enjoyment of life.

Pain relief doesn’t usually happen overnight, but it can. Each person’s pain experience is unique to them.

“In other words, pain is an unpleasant sensation in all the creatures that is caused by actual or perceived injury to body tissues and produces physical and emotional reactions. Presumably, pain sensation has evolved to protect our bodies from harm by causing us to perform certain actions and avoid others.”

OTC (Over the counter) medications: Over-the-counter (OTC) medications are drugs that you can buy without a doctor’s prescription. In case if OTC meds fail to relieve your pain, your doctor may prescribe something stronger.  Several NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are also available at higher prescription doses [basically, there are two main types of OTC pain medications: acetaminophen (Tylenol) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)].
