How Do I Know If I Have Chronic Pain?

What Causes Chronic Pain?

Pain that lasts longer than three months is considered chronic pain. Chronic pain is a major, long-standing medical condition that can last years if left untreated.

Even after an injury has healed or an illness has gone away, people can still experience chronic pain. This occurs when pain signals remain active within the nervous system. As a result, pain can last for weeks, months, or even years.

The most common conditions of chronic pain are:

  • Headache/Migraines
  • Arthritis
  • Nerve Pain/Damage
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Fibromyalgia

It’s also possible to experience chronic pain without having an injury.
