Pain is a signal from the nervous system that something is wrong. It is an unpleasant sensation, such as a prick, tingling, stinging, burning, or discomfort. The pain can be intermittent or constant.
We all could have felt pain at some point in our lives, and commonly we can feel it in some part of the body, such as the back, abdomen, chest, or pelvis. Or you may feel widespread pain. But you should know that there are two types of pain:
• Acute pain: It usually comes on suddenly due to illness, injury, or inflammation. It can often be diagnosed and treated. It usually goes away, although it can sometimes become chronic pain
• Chronic pain: Lasts a long time and can cause serious problems
The pain that will not go away is more than frustrating. It can be harmful to your health and well-being. It can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep, eating right, and exercising. It can affect your mood and work, and it can prevent you from spending time with your friends and family. If you are one of the 100 million Americans with long-term pain, also called chronic pain, you know how debilitating and frustrating it can be.
