Everything You Want to Know About Your Chronic Pain Syndrome
Do I Have Chronic Pain Syndrome?
Chronic pain syndrome (CPS) Is very common. In the US, there are more than 3 million people living with chronic pain syndrome each year. There are numerous treatments available to help with chronic pain symptoms. Unfortunately, there are many cases where people seek multiple treatments for their pain. It is better to find a single treatment that heals your pain once and for all. So, before seeking treatment to cure your CPS, let’s learn more about this condition. There are various causes, symptoms and treatments for chronic pain syndrome.
What Causes Chronic Pain Syndrome?
The most common causes of chronic pain syndrome include:
• Muscle Spasms
Another cause of CPS is a mixture of different types of pain. An example is suffering from headaches and neuropathy or IBS and muscle spasms at the same time. Therefore, your body must cope with two types of chronic pain. CPS encompasses any type of complex pain that is persistent and reoccurring.
Chronic pain syndrome does not suddenly appear without cause. Usually, there is a traumatic injury that onsets CPS. Another way that doctors diagnose CPS is by monitoring your pain over time. So, if you’re living with fibromyalgia for several years, your condition is considered a chronic case.
What are Chronic Pain Symptoms?
Some of the symptoms for chronic pain syndrome are:
• Joint Pain
• Neck Pain
• Muscle Pain
• Loss of Appetite
• Overall Weakness
Your CPS symptoms depend on the cause. Chronic pain syndrome is more damaging when you experience more than one condition. If you have chronic joint pain, chronic fatigue and insomnia, your treatment options will be much different than a person who only suffers from chronic neck pain. However, every case of chronic pain syndrome is unique and deserves specific care from a professional pain doctor.
How Do You Treat Chronic Pain Syndrome?
Treatments for chronic pain syndrome include the following:
• Anti-Inflammatory Medication
• Aquatic Therapy
• Massage Therapy
• Minimally Invasive Surgery
• Physical Therapy
• Regenerative Medicine
Space City Pain Specialists recommends seeing a pain doctor who can diagnose your CPS. After a diagnosis, your pain specialist will prescribe a medication or alternative treatment.

Talk to your pain doctor about your symptoms and concerns.
