Should I talk to my doctor about my deep somatic pain?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

When deciding if you should see your doctor about your deep somatic pain, remember that this pain can be caused by many things, including injuries, cancer, and bone diseases. Also, remember that certain conditions, including age and diabetes, sometimes interfere with the ability to feel pain, and therefore might make an injury or illness seem less serious than it actually is. If your pain is new, doesn't go away, or is affecting your day-to-day life, you should probably see your doctor for pain relief and exam.
