Chronic Pain Conditions
- Headaches: One of the most common types of chronic pain, a headache can be considered chronic by a doctor if the headache occurs for at least 15 days out of a month for three months in a row. The more common types of chronic headaches include migraines, cluster headaches, eye strain headaches and muscle tension headaches.
- Joint pain: Americans report join pain to be one of the leading types of chronic pain. Joint pain can begin at any age and occur throughout a lifetime. Common types of joint pain include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and repetitive strain injuries.
- Back pain: Most individuals will experience some type of back pain throughout the course of their lives. This pain may be severe enough to affect their ability to do their jobs, leading to the need for disability benefits. Types of chronic back pain are herniated or bulging disks, spinal stenosis, soft tissue damage, structural deformities, compression fractures and traumatic fractures.
- Neuropathic pain: When nerves that carry pain signals to the brain are triggered by damage, compression or swelling, neuropathic pain can occur. Any nerves that may be healing may cause pain to become intensified. Types of neuropathic pain that are often experienced include sciatica, bulging or herniated disks (slipped disks), diabetic neuropathy and carpal tunnel syndrome.
In addition to these categories, any type of illness or condition can lead to chronic pain, such as cancer or fibromyalgia.

This level of fatigue can interrupt the daily life of an individual and be a cause for him or her to require job accommodations or disability benefits.
