Chronic pain syndromes or CPS is a term used to describe patients with severe persistent pain from almost any source which has further resulted in marked changes in behavior, self-imposed limitation of daily activities and largely unsuccessful use of the healthcare scheme. CPS engulfs all other medical chronic syndromes to the point of becoming the trouble itself. It is frequently accompanied by attacks of irritability, uncontrolled anger, and depression. In addition, it has no specific cause but rather a collective outcome of a combination of conditions including those that cause the pain. CPS is not fabricated or psychogenic pain but rather the body's psycho-physiological response to chronic pain. Symptoms of CPS must be identified early on and so the disorder can be treated using a multi-disciplinary approach. It should be emphasized that the pain is very existent and is experienced as distress by the patient in the same way as any other pain.
An obtained behavioral condition functions on a totally comatose level and does not involve purposeful or sentient input from the patient. In fact, these patients never wanted to feel pain no matter what triggers, in terms of psychosocial or personal advantages it. They should therefore be in accordance to the same attention and care as patients suffering from any other painful condition get. There are some hopefulness that those highly predisposed of developing CPS will be acknowledged in the future prior to injury, and treated more assertively during the acute phase. CPS is managed best with a multidisciplinary approach at the same time, assisting the patient return to a more normal life at optimum functioning.
