Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain

Your body keeps hurting weeks, months, or even years after the injury. Doctors often define chronic pain as any pain that lasts for 3 to 6 months or more.
Chronic pain can have real effects on your day-to-day life and your mental health.

Symptoms
Chronic pain can range from mild to severe. It can continue day after day or come and go. The pain can feel like:

  • A dull ache
  • Throbbing
  • Burning
  • Shooting
  • Squeezing
  • Stinging
  • Soreness
  • Stiffness
  • Sometimes pain is just one of many symptoms, which can also include:
  • Feeling very tired or wiped out
  • Not feeling hungry
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Mood changes
  • Weakness
  • A lack of energy

It can take a mental toll on your self-esteem and make you feel angry, depressed, anxious, and frustrated, preventing you to do the things you normally do.
