As someone living with pain and a perspective pain management patient, it is important to understand pain as a general topic and the type of pain you are experiencing. Pain is generally categorized as either acute or chronic.

  • Acute pain: endures only for a limited amount of time, most often due to injury or damage to tissue in the body
  • Chronic pain: persistent pain, more often tied to explanations besides tissue injury or damage such as chronic inflammation, changes in nerve sensitivity, emotions, prior traumatic injury, and changes in the wiring of the brain

Acute pain symptoms include:

  • pain that lasts less than 3 months
  • the sensation of pain is local to the injured area
  • accompanied by swelling, warmth, and redness
  • tied to an injury or specific physical trauma
  • pain that increases when agitated, and decreased pain when the irritant is removed; if you have an ankle injury, you may feel worsened pain when shifting weight onto that leg, but feel some relief when you remove the weight from that leg with crutches or when elevating it

  • pain that lingers beyond 3 months
  • not directly or immediately related to an injury
  • widespread pain
  • fluctuating severity of pain that are not consistent with a specific motion or activity
