About 23% of the population suffers from chronic pain syndrome. Chronic pain is a serious, socially significant problem that reduces patients' quality of life, deprives them of the opportunity to work, do the things they love, and pay attention to their loved ones.
ABOUT CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROME
Sometimes pain evolves into a poorly understood condition known as chronic pain syndrome. Unlike acute pain, this condition doesn't go away after your initial injury or illness has healed. It's marked by pain that lasts longer than six months and is often accompanied by anger and depression, anxiety, loss of sexual desire, and disability.
Chronic pain syndrome may occur along with conditions that involve long-term pain, including certain cancers, stroke, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, endometriosis, and inflammatory bowel disease. Experts don't yet understand how or even if these conditions are related.
SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROME
Symptoms vary from person to person but may include any or a combination of:
- Low back pain
