Dr Brian Blick has explained that everyone would experience pain in his life. But when the pain is severe or chronic, it could be unpleasant, weakening, and also undermining. Severe pain would not allow you to perform all your stated duties or activities;

  1. You would not be able to do your daily routine.
  2. All your hobbies would not be enjoyable again.
  3. Sweeping or mopping, or even cooking,which are basic tasks you do regularly, would become difficult to do again.

Dr Brian Blick makes it clear that many people that experience severe pain from parts of their bodies would want to take to using pain relievers. While this move could be a good one, Dr Brian Blick still advises that it is imperative that you check on the different types and varieties of pain relievers that could be used. It is necessary to know the benefits they offer and also the risks involved in using them. 

But all-in-all, Doctor Blick, an Anesthesiologist or pain specialist physician, advises following instructions offered by your doctor for managing your chronic pain. He hints that your medical physician will advise you as far as serious or chronic pain is concerned too;

  1. Always take the prescribed dosage and do not overdose.
  2. Take note of the particular pain reliever you are using’s side effects
  3. Observe your body’s reaction to the medication and check if you are experiencing some side effects.
  4. Discontinue taking the pain tranquilizer if you experience side effects.
  5. Contact your physician immediately.

Notable pain tranquilizers that Dr Brian Blick talks about on his website are;

  1. Non-Steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. 
  2. Opioid pain tranquilizers.

NSAID drugs are the most popular medicines for relieving pain. They are the likes of Naproxen (Aleve) and also Advil (Ibuprofen) which are perfect for relieving all kinds of pain. Dr Brian Blick implies that NSAIDs are the most effective for treating any pain that is categorized as acute or severe. He says their primary function is to help minimize inflammation which would indirectly minimize pain too. You could always get a prescription for NSAID medicines from your doctor. Also, they are readily available at pharmaceutical stores. 

Notable disadvantages and side effects of taking Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs are;

  • Users may be experiencing constipation. 
  • Diarrhea.
  • Running stool (stomach upset).

It has been strongly advised by Dr Brian Blick not to abuse the use of NSAIDs drugs which can cause stroke and many other heart-related problems. 

And those pain relievers that are categorized under Opioids are mainly used or prescribed to patients when normal NSAIDs are not effective. They are kinds of pain or analgesic medication that are used by patients whose bodies have developed resistance to common pain tranquilizers. One thing about Opioids is that once they are administered into the body, they get transferred to the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). There, they would bind to pain receptors which would now alter the way pain signals from this central nervous system are processed. It has been informed by Dr Brian Blick that nausea and drowsiness are notable issues associated with Opioids. People can easily get addicted to them.
