Chronic Pain – Symptoms

Symptoms:

  • Pain that does not go away as expected after an illness or injury
  • Pain that may be described as shooting, burning, aching, or electrical
  • Discomfort, soreness, tightness, or stiffness

Pain can lead to other problems, such as:

  • Fatigue, which can cause impatience and a loss of motivation
  • Sleeplessness, often because the pain keeps you awake during the night
  • Withdrawal from activity and an increased need to rest
  • A weakened immune system, leading to frequent infections
  • Depression
  • Mood changes, such as hopelessness, fear, irritability, anxiety, and stress
  • Disability, which may include not being able to go to work or school or perform other daily activities
