Dealing with chronic pain can make the ordinary things in life difficult. Fatigue becomes your new normal. This is not the way you want to see each day.
Chronic pain is defined as any pain that is ongoing and usually lasts for more than 3-6 months. Unlike acute pain which usually goes away after an underlying cause goes away, chronic pain can continue in spite of the injury or illness going away. Some of the most common causes of chronic pain include arthritis, migraines and other headaches, nerve damage, back pain and various inflammatory conditions. People feel chronic pain as their nervous system sends a series of messages from pain sensors in the form of an electrical signal, traveling nerve to nerve, to your brain. Your brain then messages that you hurt. With chronic pain, even after healing, the nerve signals keep firing and the pain continues.
Some of the physical issues people face when chronic pain is left untreated included tense muscles, limited mobility, little to no energy and changes in appetite. People with chronic pain also find that this condition takes a strong emotional toll on them with depression, anxiety, anger and fear of re-injury taking over. Both work and leisure activities become too difficult.
