There are many ways you and your family can help to control your pain. Your pain may seem worse if you are anxious or worried. It can also seem worse at night when there is nothing to distract you. 

 

Your doctor may suggest some medicine for anxiety or to help you sleep. They may also suggest anti depressants. If you are depressed, it can make it harder for you to cope with pain. 

 

Doctors also use anti depressants to treat nerve pain in people who are not depressed. Ask your doctor if you are not sure why particular medicines have been suggested for you. 

 

Here are some other things you can do for yourself: 

relaxation - use relaxation CDs or listen to some calming music and think of somewhere beautiful you would like to be

breathing - try to breathe slowly and deeply when you are tense

change your position at least every 2 hours to prevent stiffness and sore skin

massage - ask your family or friends to give gentle massage to your back, hands or feet

hot or cold packs can help relieve pain (wrap them in a soft towel to prevent damaging your skin)

watching TV, reading or chatting can help to take your mind off your aches and pains

Painkillers are also called analgesics or analgesia. There are many different types and strengths of painkillers suitable for different types of pain. Simple painkillers like paracetamol, are suitable if you have mild pain. If you have moderate pain, you might have weak opioid painkillers such as codeine. For ongoing or severe pain, you usually have morphine type (opioid) painkillers. A doctor or nurse can judge which type of painkiller is best for you. The important thing is that you have the right type of painkiller for your pain and the right dose. You might also have anti inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Nurofen) alongside any of the other painkillers. Anti depressants or anti epileptic drugs help with nerve pain. Some people may use complementary methods of pain control alongside painkillers.

Test Method 1 : A1C test

Blood testing allows a doctor to determine the levels of blood sugar in the body. The A1C test is one of the most common because its results estimate blood sugar levels over time, and you don't have to fast. The test is also known as the glycated hemoglobin test. It measures how much glucose has attached itself to red blood cells in your body over the last two to three months. 

 

Since red blood cells have a lifespan of about three months, the A1C test measures your average blood sugar for about three months. The test requires gathering only a small amount of blood.
