What are the common causes of chronic and intermittent pain?

Though we will all have to deal with pain many times in our lives, it helps to know what is causing the pain so we can take the appropriate steps to stop it.

Pain is usually classified as either chronic or intermittent (aka acute).

Chronic pain is long-term pain. It could be anything from ongoing lower back pain or something due to a congenital condition such as scoliosis.

The causes of chronic pain vary. As we noted, it could be due to a condition that is present from  birth (congenital) or due to other incidents, including:

  • Aging - This is one of the most common causes of chronic pain. As we get older, our bodies start to exhibit signs of wear and tear. Bones and muscles wear down, as do organs. Although arthritis can affect people of all ages, it is most common in older adults
  • Disease -There are a number of diseases that can cause chronic pain.
  • Surgery -Post-operative pain may sometimes last for several months. Patients who have had surgery to resolve complaints of lower back pain may experience lengthy, though less severe pain long after their surgery to correct the c0ndition.
  • Accident -An auto accident, workplace accident, or an accident at home can cause severe trauma to the body that may last for many months. For example, ladder-related accidents kill almost three workers every week and injure more than 50 workers every day in the U.S.

Intermittent pain does not last longer than six months. After six months, it is considered chronic pain. Intermittent pain is no less painful that chronic pain, but it can be treated to get faster results. Some common causes of intermittent pain include:

  • Surgery- Recovering from an operation can be painful. Reducing post-op pain is one of the top reasons why doctors issue prescriptions for dangerous uploads such as hydrocodone and
  • Dental work- Oral surgery is another example of a potential intermittent pain source that may cause a doctor to prescribe an opioid to reduce the pain.
  • Accidents- Burns and broken bones are just two of the many types of accidents that can cause intermittent pain.
  • Stress- This can trigger many types of intermittent pain, including severe headaches, gastrointestinal pain, and skin conditions.
