Do You Suffer from Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is defined as any pain lasting more than 12 weeks. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury. Chronic pain is very different. It can persist for months or even longer and can sometimes have no apparent reason to exist.
Chronic pain often involves both nociceptive and neuropathic pain. Disease can also be the underlying cause of chronic pain. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia are well-known culprits, but persistent pain may also be due to such ailments as cancer, multiple sclerosis, stomach ulcers, AIDS, gallbladder disease, back pain and diabetes.
Chronic pain is a debilitating condition for the millions of people who live with its side effects every day. Being in even temporary pain is not easy, but pain that doesn't go away is especially challenging. While medication significantly helps with the pain, it is often not enough to control all of the symptoms. When chronic pain is poorly controlled, living with it can feel unbearable.
