Is Your Pain Chronic? Understanding Chronic Pain

by Yenny (SU)
Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong, but how would you know if it’s chronic pain? Doctors often define chronic pain as any pain that lasts for 3 to 6 months or more. What causes chronic pain? Sometimes chronic pain can begin without any obvious cause, however, some of the leading causes include: • Nerve damage • Infections • Fibromyalgia • Past injuries or surgeries • Back problems • Migraines and other headaches • Arthritis

Chronic vs. Acute Pain

Chronic vs. Acute Pain

by Shearly (SU)
Pain, from the perspective of the medical professional, is often divided into two main categories: acute pain, and chronic pain. Acute pain is the type of pain that we feel as the immediate result of an injury (for example, your finger hurts after getting hit by a hammer when you are trying to drive a nail). Chronic pain is a pain that is more lasting or frequent in nature. Chronic pain, for example, might be more along the lines of having a back or joint pain that is either constant or comes and goes on a fairly regular basis. There are many different conditions linked to chronic and acute pain. These include autoimmune disorders, spine and nerve damage, neurological conditions like migraines, broken bones, nerve damage, burns, blunt trauma and lacerations, and much more.
