What Causes Chronic Pain?
Anything from a bad mattress to stomach ulcers can cause chronic pain. While it may begin with an injury or illness, pain can develop a psychological dimension once the physical problem heals.
- Nerve Pain – When nerve fibers get damaged, the result can be chronic pain.
- Burns and Pain – Burns differ in type and severity — as does the pain.
- Compressed Nerve (Pinched Nerve) – Pinched nerves can sometimes lead to other conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow. Early diagnosis can prevent damage.
