Self-Medication to Relief Pains on the Rise in Singapore

According to an article published in the Straits Times, “More people self-medicating to ease aches and pains” more people are skipping a visit to their doctors and heading to the pharmacy to buy medication to treat their pain symptoms.

The article quoted, Dr Yeo Sow Nam from a private pain clinic, “When in doubt or when the duration (of pain) exceeds two weeks and it is more severe than mild… seek a physician’s advice.”

Pain medication masks the pain symptoms but doesn’t actually resolve the underlying problem. The body has an amazing ability to heal but if the pain persists after a period of time, it is best to get professional medical advice as to what the problem may be.
