Pain Conditions Overview

Pain disorder is chronic pain experienced by a patient in one or more areas, and is thought to be caused by psychological stress. The pain is often so severe that it disables the patient from proper functioning. Duration may be as short as a few days or as long as many years. Pain causes discomfort and reduces your quality of life.

There are many underlying causes of body aches. Pain disorders often occurs after an accident with trauma to the body, during an illness that has caused pain, or after withdrawing from use during drug addiction. Early intervention when pain first occurs or begins to become chronic offers the best opportunity for prevention of pain disorder.

Common symptoms of pain disorder are inactivity and passivity, in some cases disability. Increased pain sometimes may cause sleep disturbance and fatigue; disruption of social relationships, depression and anxiety.

What are the Different Types of Pain?

The pain may be caused by inflammation or dysfunctional nerves. The primary symptom is persistent pain that lasts weeks to years. Treatments may include medications, acupuncture, electrical stimulation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and surgery. There are 4 major types of pain:
  • Nociceptive Pain: Typically the result of tissue injury
  • Inflammatory Pain: An abnormal inflammation caused by the body’s immune system
  • Neuropathic Pain: Pain caused by nerve irritation
  • Functional Pain: Pain without obvious origin, but can cause pain.
