Re: Chronic pain Question, new to this board
With all of the conditions you note I'd venture to say you do have a version of "chronic pain". Sometimes chronic pain can mean pain that is not there every second of every day but there is enough pain on a regular basis for it to be a chronic issue. So talking to your doctor about your overall health and pain concerns might lead to a better medication regimen.
