Pain usually starts when nerves send signals to your brain, telling it you have an injury or illness. There are two major categories of pain.
• Acute pain is a severe or sudden pain that resolves within a certain amount of time.
• Chronic pain is persistent, lasting for months or even longer. Chronic pain itself is considered a health condition.
When you have chronic pain, your brain can continue getting these signals even after the body has healed. Over time, the brain may become so used to getting pain signals, it can't turn them off.
