What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain is pain that no longer serves a biological function, that is, it does not provide a reason for being there. For example, you feel pain when you touch a hot iron with your hand because your "biological function" or thought processes in the brain, tell you to remove it, to prevent burning your hand. Chronic pain has no purpose, in that doing something about it will prevent further bodily injury, as in the case with the iron, which prevented the burn. Therefore, chronic pain does not respond to treatments which are not specific to the pain, such as over-the-counter drugs. Many times, the pain has bothered the sufferer for a long time.
