Do I Have Chronic Pain? 

Do I Have Chronic Pain? 

Everyone knows what pain feels like–when you’re hurting, you don’t need anyone to explain to you that you don’t feel good. What you may be wondering, though, is whether or not you’re suffering from just pain or chronic pain. Here’s an overview of what you should know about chronic pain, the symptoms of chronic pain, and the causes of chronic pain. For chronic pain management treatment, call Pain Control Associates, LLC today.

What Causes Chronic Pain?

There are a number of different causes of chronic pain. Sometimes, chronic pain is the result of an acute injury, such as being injured in a car accident, a workplace injury, or a slip and fall. Sometimes, acute pain is the result of a disease or health condition, such as arthritis or sciatica. Some of the leading causes of chronic pain include fibromyalgia, migraines, injuries, arthritis, nerve damage, and infections. 

What Are the Symptoms of Chronic Pain?

If you are suffering from pain, you may be wondering whether or not the pain can be classified as chronic pain. Chronic pain can look different depending on the cause and the patient but, in many cases, symptoms of chronic pain include feelings of: 

  • Aching;
  • Throbbing;
  • Stiffness;
  • Soreness;
  • Shooting; 
  • Burning;
  • Stabbing. 

Sometimes, pain is dull; other times, it’s sharp and fierce. You might also experience feelings of fatigue, weakness, grumpiness or moodiness, or a loss of appetite as a result of serious pain.

So What Exactly Is Chronic Pain?

If you have the symptoms listed above, and if you have a diagnosed pain-causing health condition or if you have been involved in a serious accident, you may have chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts between three and six months or longer. If you have been suffering from chronic pain for more than three months, it’s time to meet with a pain management specialist.
