Chronic Pain Syndrome & SSDI

Virginia Attorneys Handling Chronic Pain Syndrome

Nearly everyone experiences some form of pain over their lifetime. Pains from an accident, childbirth, or surgery may hurt initially but will eventually subside, leaving the person with a faint memory of the painful feelings. Unfortunately, there are millions of people in our society who experience daily, chronic pain that prevents them from living a normal, healthy life. According to the Chronic Pain Syndrome Network, there are 48 million Americans who suffer from incapacitating chronic pain.

Types of Chronic Pain

There are many different types of scenarios that can lead a person to experience persistent feelings of discomfort or intense pain:

  • Somatic: Pains felt in the muscles or skin, such as back pain or fibromyalgia.
  • Visceral: Internal organ pain, such as gallstones, constipation, organ inflammation, indigestion.
  • Bone: Throbbing pains felt in the bones or joints, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, infections or cancer.
  • Headaches: Head pain resulting from tension or cluster headaches, migraines, sinus pain, brain tumors, nerve pain or sinusitis.
  • Spasms: Muscle spasms can lead to debilitating pain.
  • Circulatory: A lack of oxygen and nutrients in the bloodstream can reduce circulation and cause pain.
  • Nerve: Pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nervous system, distorting messages transmitted between the brain and other parts of the body.
  • Phantom: A type of "ghost" pain felt as a result of amputated limbs or paralysis.
  • Central: Damage to the central nervous system, such as a traumatic brain injury or stroke, which results in varying degrees of pain.
  • Psychogenic: Unexplained, psychological pain that exists without any discernable signs of damage, injury or disease.

The Results of Chronic Pain

In addition to the painful physical symptoms of chronic pain syndrome, a person suffering from this condition may also begin to exhibit other symptoms as a result of this condition, including:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Lethargy
  • Depression
  • Sleeplessness
  • Irritability
  • Sadness
  • Drug abuse
  • Anger
  • Low self-esteem
  • Treatment

There are many different treatment options for individuals suffering from chronic pain syndrome, including:

  • Surgery
  • Medication
  • Psychotherapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Biofeedback
  • Behavioral modification
  • Acupuncture

As with any condition, finding the right treatment to control chronic pain can take the concerted efforts of a team of medical personnel. While untreated, chronic pain can make it impossible for the victim to bring in a steady income.
