In brief: Not genetic
Chronic pain is not always a genetic or familial problem. Pain can come from an injury, inflammation, disease process, cancer, mental health issues, congenital malformations, etc.
Treating chronic pain is best done with a holistic approach using pain medications as well as yoga/tai chi, acupuncture, rolfing, feldenkrais, therapy and faith in yourself.
