What Is Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is persistent pain that lasts for 6 months or longer. The pain signals can remain active in the nervous system for months or even years, and take a physical and emotional toll on a patient over time. Chronic pain can be mild or excruciating, episodic, continuous, inconvenient or incapacitating. It can occur in the back, neck, head, joint(s), legs, feet, arms, and hand. Psychological factors can increase the perception of pain and often include anxiety, brain fog, frustration, exhaustion, and depression.
