Chronic pain is persistent pain that adversely affects the patient well-being, level of function, and quality of life for more than 3 to 6 months.
Common symptoms of chronic pain include:
Chronic back and leg pain is described as pain that has been felt in the back or leg for six months or longer.
Chronic back and leg pain can result from a number of spinal conditions, including:
Complex regional pain syndrome is a chronic pain condition that most often affects the arms, legs, hands, or feet. CRPS is also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy or causalgia.
CRPS usually develops in a limb after an injury (such as a broken bone) or surgery. The exact cause of CRPS is unknown.
Painful neuropathy is a neurological disorder where people experience chronic pain due to nerve damage. Nerves connect the spinal cord to the body and help the brain communicate with skin, muscles, and internal organs.
Painful neuropathies may be a result of diabetes, nutritional imbalances, alcoholism, toxins, chemotherapy, infections, autoimmunity, trauma of the nerves, and/or illnesses, such as kidney failure or cancer.
Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is defined as persistent, noncyclic pain perceived to be in your pelvic region (area under belly button) and lasting for more than six months.
There can be multiple causes of CPP. It can be a symptom of another condition or can be a condition in its own right.
