Pain is either acute or chronic. Acute pain usually develops from a specific incident, such as an injury or surgery, and may cause sharp, severe pain that resolves over time.
Chronic pain is a long-term pain condition that lasts six or more months. Your chronic pain may have started as acute pain but never improved, even after complete healing or resolution of the inciting incident.
With chronic pain, your discomfort can range from dull, achy sensations to severe, debilitating pain. No matter the type of sensation you feel, your chronic pain may affect your emotional, social, and financial health.
