I have a few questions about chronic pain that I would like answered. I don't really know what it is. I want to understand it properly so I don't make a mistake.
I've mentioned this before in my posts, but I have a severe headache that persists into different areas of my head, mainly, my brain and jaw. (I actually think I have a gum problem) It has lasted for more than three years and it has been thoroughly consistent. It's with me every single day and never leaves. So far I've been unable to treat it because I don't know what it is.
I wanted to know, would this be classified as chronic pain? . I'm too afraid to talk to my doctors about this because I'm young and I don't think they'll take me seriously. I think they believe i'm jumping to conclusions and self diagnosing myself. I've constantly mentioned it before to them, and it's been a main focal point in our conversations but I don't think they really understand because I've been using the word "headache". I've been very depressed about it and I don't think I've been getting proper treatment. If anyone could answer this, thanks. I just don't know what to do anymore, I can't keep up with my studies.
