In brief: Long term pain

Long term pain is pain that persists.
It is present for a variety reasons initially but persists because it does not go away. There are a variety of chronic pain syndromes: some are localized; some are back pain; some are fibromyalgia which is more widespread. The duration can be a clue - chronic can be more than 3 to 6 to 12 months. The location can be neuropathic, visceral, somatic, deep, etc.
