Freeclaim Solicitors Call for Better Understanding of Chronic Pain
Chronic Pain is a distressing condition which can affect many aspects of your life. It is estimated that around 8 million people are living with chronic pain in the UK.
Both medical and legal professionals often misunderstand the symptoms and causes of chronic pain, meaning many accident victims are left without adequate compensation or access to specialist medical experts and pain management centres.
Chronic Pain is a distressing condition which can affect many aspects of your life. It is estimated that around 8 million people are living with chronic pain in the UK. Unfortunately, it is a condition which is often misunderstood and can easily be missed in many accident victims. Although there are many people reportedly suffering from this disabling condition, there are also numerous examples where insurance companies and doctors have been sceptical about the symptoms experienced and suffering.
Chronic Pain is a long lasting pain which has not been relieved by treating the cause (if known) or by trying to relieve the pain itself. It can cover a wide range of conditions including
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS)
- Myofascial pain;
- Ankolysing Spondylitis.
Chronic Pain is generally triggered after trauma and can develop after relatively minor injuries. Many cases develop generally after a work accident, whiplash accident, slip or military accident. Not every case is the same, but the most common symptoms include:
- Psychological disorders
- Anxiety and stress
- Burning sensation and sensitivity to touch
- Anger issues
