Chronic pain conditions have only been recognised relatively recently. They are often difficult to diagnose as GPs cannot detect anything specifically ‘wrong’ with the patient. Yet, they are very real and represent a serious diagnosis of long-term pain and suffering – possibly arising after an injury or accident.
As well as specific incidents, chronic pain can also be caused by medical conditions such as:
- Chronic Pain Syndrome
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Surgical trauma
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
- Somatoform Disorder
If you are suffering from chronic pain, it is essential to seek specialist medical care, as well as expert legal support if you believe it stems from an accident that wasn’t your fault.
