Chronic Pain Q & A
What is chronic pain?
Pain falls into two categories, acute and chronic. Acute pain refers to the immediate pain that occurs in response to an injury or illness, and it disappears when the underlying problem heals.
Chronic pain lasts at least 3-6 months. This type of pain often occurs due to an ongoing health problem. However, you can also develop chronic pain when the pain that began with an injury sticks around after the injury heals.
What health conditions cause chronic pain?
Your chronic pain may arise from a traumatic injury, surgery, or a variety of underlying conditions. A few of the most common causes are:
- Lyme disease
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
- Peripheral neuropathy
Chronic pain affects each person differently. The pain may be constant or come and go. Some people experience a dull, aching sensation, while others have sharp, debilitating pain.
When should I seek help for chronic pain?
Early treatment makes your life better by easing the pain. Getting treatment as soon as possible also prevents changes that occur in your nerves due to ongoing pain and increases the severity of your chronic pain.
It's definitely time to schedule an appointment with the team at Oasis Therapeutics when:
- Pain interferes with your daily activities
- Pain limits your mobility
- Pain makes it hard to sleep
- Over-the-counter medications don't help
You should seek treatment as soon as you realize your pain isn't improving or it gets worse.
How is chronic pain treated?
Unlike acute pain, you won't get long-lasting relief from chronic pain by taking pain-relieving medications. These medications may temporarily ease the pain, but it will return.
