If you have pain that continues for 12 weeks or more, it’s considered chronic pain. Chronic pain can begin in many different ways. Sometimes, it starts as an injury that doesn’t resolve as expected. In other cases, chronic pain starts with an illness such as fibromyalgia or arthritis.
Often, pain isn’t the only issue for chronic pain sufferers. If you’re dealing with chronic pain, you may also experience range-of-motion problems, sleep problems, depression, anxiety, and other frustrating issues.
