What are your options for treating or managing the issue?

Some of the options may be medical and some may be more straightforward things you can do yourself.  Even chronic pain can often be improved a great deal through making relatively minor changes in daily life. Sometimes quite simple remedies or actions can help, without having to resort to medications.  Where these work, they side-step the issue of possible side effects from medication.

Once you consult a doctor, you are probably looking for medical solutions.  Sometimes these can fix a problem - or help to fix it - but they can’t always. Even if they help, they can be even more effective when teamed with self-management strategies.
