The pain that lasts for more than 12 weeks is characterized as chronic pain. It is a bit different from acute pain, in the fact that it does not cause a normal sensation. It can persist for a longer period of time, to months and beyond.
The chronic pain signal remains concurrent through a longer period, weeks, months or even years. The chronic pain may be due to an injury or infection, like bulging disk in the spine, which can also be allied to cancer, arthritis or any kind of complex disorder like fibromyalgia. Sometimes, it just occurs without any evidence of past injury or infection. Such a condition is highly dreadful to the physical and mental condition of the person.
Living with a chronic condition like Rheumatoid Arthritis comes with a variety of challenges, one of the biggest ones being that RA is essentially an “invisible illness”. Its a common cause of sciatic pain down the leg. If its too tight it can compress that nerve. (Some) people actually have it growing right through the muscle which would probably cause chronic pain.
