Symptoms of Chronic pain

Symptoms of Chronic pain: Introduction

Symptoms of chronic pain can differ in intensity, frequency, and duration amongst individuals. Symptoms can be minimal to intense and include joint pain, muscle, headache, neck pain, low back pain, pain due to cancer, neurogenic pain (pain due to nerve or central nervous system damage) and visceral pain (pain that comes from the body's organs).

Because of the long-term, unrelenting nature of chronic pain, it can also result in additional symptoms or complications, such as anxiety, depression and even suicidal thoughts. The risk of these complications is greater when chronic pain is not treated adequately.

Chronic pain is frequently linked to depression. The two are connected closely because the mood and pain perception centers are both located in the same areas of the brain. Both chronic pain and depression can deplete the body's sores of endorphins and other neurochemicals that regulate mood and sensation and result in an exacerbation of the other condition. Seventy-five percent of patients with clinical depression also have complaints of physical symptoms, especially chronic pain. In addition, clinical depression occurs in about 30% of patients with chronic pain, and anyone in pain can experience some level of mood change, according to the National Pain Foundation....more about Chronic pain »
