Why is it so?

Why is it that the fastest temporary cure known to man for any kind of niggling pain is to go to the doctor?

You can be sore for weeks and do everything possible to alleviate the pain, and it won't go away. However, the day you have your doctor's appointment, not only is the pain gone but you can't quite work out where it was to begin with.

Then, in the car on the way home, it rears it's ugly sleepy little head, as if to say, "Hello! I'm awake again! Did I miss anything?"

Cheeky. Little. &*)&&^*()%.

I always tell patients not to worry, because if there is anything there it probably will still be there even if the pain has temporarily taken a holiday. However, I can completely empathise with just how silly it makes you feel when this happens.

If you go to the doctor and this happens, don't worry. The exact same thing has probably happened to them, too.
