[Long Term Pain] What is it about me? I’m not injured again, Zhongyuantang will analyze the reasons for everyone!
Almost everyone feels pain from time to time. When you cut your finger or pull a muscle, the pain is what your body tells you where the problem is. Once the wound has healed, you will no longer be injured. These are just short-term pains. Of course, everyone will not feel depressed!
Chronic pain is different. A few weeks, months or even years after the injury, your body will feel very uncomfortable. Doctors usually define chronic pain as any pain that lasts 3 to 6 months or longer.
Chronic pain can have a real impact on your daily life and mental health. But you can ask your doctor for assistance in treatment.
Why does chronic pain linger?
The feeling of pain comes from a series of messages that run through the nervous system. When you are injured, the injury will turn on the pain sensor in that area. They send information in the form of signals, which propagate from nerve to nerve until it reaches your brain. Your brain processes the signal and sends a message that you are harmed.
Usually, the signal stops when the cause of the pain is eliminated, for example: your body repairs the wound in the finger or muscle tear. However, due to chronic pain, nerve signals will continue to be emitted even if you are cured.
What conditions cause chronic pain?
Sometimes, chronic pain can start without any obvious cause. But for many people, it starts after an injury or health condition. Some of the main reasons are:
Past injury or surgery
Migraines and other headaches
Fibromyalgia, a disease that makes people feel muscle pain all over the body
Symptoms of pain:
Chronic pain ranges from mild to severe. It can go on or come and go day after day. The pain feels like:：
It’s a dull pain
Sometimes pain is just one of many symptoms, which also includes：

Chronic pain and your mental health
Chronic pain can interfere with your daily life and prevent you from doing what you want and need to do. This can damage your self-esteem and make you feel angry, depressed, anxious and depressed.
The connection between your emotions and pain forms a cycle. When injured, you are more likely to feel depressed. This will make your pain worse. The link between depression and pain is why doctors often use antidepressants as a treatment for chronic pain. These drugs can relieve pain and emotional tension caused。
Pain can also interfere with sleep and increase stress levels. Lack of sleep and more stress can exacerbate the pain.
