There are 2 types of pain:

  1. Acute pain lets you know that your body is injured and usually doesn’t last long. It should go away as your body heals.
  2. Chronic pain last months or even years. Chronic pain may interfere with your daily activities. Those experiencing chronic pain may also have low self-esteem, depression, and anger.

Chronic pain occurs when nerves responsible for signaling pain become extremely sensitive, causing someone to feel intense pain from the lightest of touch. The processes responsible for this scenario may be located within the nerves, the spinal cord and/or the brain.

Conditions that may cause chronic pain include:

  • Chronic Infections
  • Headaches and/or migraines
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Cancer

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Depression and stress tend to make pain worse, including chronic pain.
