Chronic pain is wide spread and it’s impact on the quality of life can be severe: One out of five adults suffers from permanent or reoccurring pain. Half of those patients have been suffering for more than seven years. Moreover, pain is often very complex: Over time, it can move or expand to different locations of the body, the intensity may vary, or there might be various influences which increase or ease the pain. This explains how difficult it sometimes is to diagnose and treat chronic pain. Keeping a diary helps you to get to know your pain and you might notice a pattern which will help treat it or adapt your lifestyle accordingly.
