"Everyone agrees that pain is a universal human experience.
We now know that pain is 100% of the time produced by the brain. This includes all pain- no matter how it feels –sharp, dull, strong or mild and no matter how long you’ve had it.
You might’ve had it for a few weeks or months- this is called acute pain or you might’ve had it for three months or more and this pain is generally called persistent or chronic because in this type of pain- tissue damage is not the main issue.
What’s less clear though is when you’re told you have chronic pain”-is knowing what’s best to do about it?"
