Chronic pain is defined as a pain lasting longer than it takes for normal healing of the tissues. Most of these patients have ongoing pain for longer than 6 months. There are a number of things that can influence pain levels.
Including fear and anxiety, family concerns, job issues, treatments not working and conflicting opinions of the diagnosis. Patients often become depressed and withdraw from social interactions and activities which make their pain worse.
