Understanding Chronic Pain
Be it back pain, headaches, joint pain, or fibromyalgia, chronic pain persists and persists. For many people, there is no end in sight. Some 30 million Americans suffer from some form of chronic pain, which is influenced by many factors, including one's emotions and memory.
It may feel like a dull ache or even a throbbing pain. It can last months or, for some people, years. Other symptoms may include exhaustion, sleep issues, mood swings, or having no energy. Chronic pain can also lead to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, among other issues.
