NURS 611 week 3 main post Question #5 P.R., a 38-year-old female, has recently been diagnosed with chronic pain; she experiences pain in several parts of the body. Discuss pain and theories of pain and its relationship to sensory deprivation for this patient. Chronic pain is pain that has extended past the average point of healing (Raffaeli & Arnaudo, 2017). A provider needs to understand the pure definition of pain in regards to a symptom of another pathology or disease itself, which is a debate for another time that has been going on for years. Another important bit of foundational information about the broad effect of pain. Ten percent, at least, of the global population is affected by chronic pain in some way (Jackson et al., 2014). This is significant and as advanced practice nurses it is important to understand the origins of pain, the current debates on chronic pain, and how does sensory deprivation affect chronic pain for P.R.
