Chronic pain is a persistent pain or recurrent pain lasting longer than the time of normal healing for an illness or injury, or more than 3 to 6 months. The pain usually adversely affects your well-being, level of function, and quality of life. It can be the result of an injury or infection, or there may be some other ongoing cause of pain that has not yet been identified.
The causes of chronic pain vary. Experts will state it can result from an injury; surgery that may have caused nerve damage; spinal conditions such as degenerative disc disease; damage to nerves after an infection; or other causes. The damage can be difficult to detect with today’s technology, but our bodies feel the pain, whether or not the cause is known.
Symptoms of chronic pain can range from mildly uncomfortable to completely disabling. It can be a sharp or stabbing pain, a burning sensation, or a dull muscular ache. Affected areas may feel tender or sore to the touch and the pain may increase with movement. Often chronic pain is not static. It can change and intensify throughout the day.
