Diagnosis: Comes before effective treatment if a diagnosis can be found you can trey the pain to ease with pain meds that's called palliative treatment a pain specialist can help with diagnosis and treatment spinal cord stimulator trial can be effective even if the pain generator is unknown 96%diagnosis are made on history and physical exam cease to rely on fancy test the most important info is how it began.

Depends on the cause: Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), circulatory, musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
