Pain Control: Fear of Addiction

Addiction is not an issue with hospice patients for two reasons: First, medications that may be addictive under certain situations are used in hospice to alleviate the pain associated with the end of life rather than to cope with the environment and social stresses of life.  Medications are being taken for physical symptom relief rather than out of social or emotional need.  Second, if a disease process would disappear and hospice care would no longer be needed, the pain and symptoms associated with end-of-life issues and the disease process would no longer exist and medication would not be necessary.  There is no longer a psychological or social need for the medication, and if a physical addiction has somehow occurred, it can be easily treated.

Hospice patients generally experience two kinds of pain: chronic and acuteChronic pain is pain that occurs continuously, while acute pain occurs suddenly often in the form of “breakthrough” pain.  Acute pain often stems from physical manifestations of symptoms, whereas chronic pain may be the result of emotional, social, and spiritual discomfort as well as physical symptoms.  Chronic pain may result from the simple fear of pain itself.  When the memory of previous pain or preoccupation with potential pain is present, pain can increase.  Without pain, the memory and fear of pain diminish and symptoms can be more easily controlled.

Pain can be further divided into these five types: visceral, bone, nerve, colic, and pleuriticVisceral pain is pain of the soft tissue and is often described as a continual ache.  Bone pain is often increased with movement.  Nerve pain produces a shooting, burning, or stabbing sensation.  Colic pain come and goes.  Pleuritic pain is affected by breathing.  Each type of pain can be an indication of a potential symptom control measure.
