Temporary pain may occur as a result of an illness or injury, while lasting pain tends to be a symptom of a long-term health condition. Dysfunctions in the nervous system may cause people to suffer from extreme and sometimes unexplained pain. Central Pain Syndrome can develop even years after an injury or other damage to the central nervous system. Muscular pain may occur as a result of excessive strain. Sometimes a person’s pain may be worsened, or even caused, by mental or emotional issues. Allergies, food-poisoning, infections and other causes can lead to pain in the abdominal area.
Rather than a disease itself, pain is a symptom of an underlying problem and can be experienced by people of any age. Pain is usually categorised into either acute, where pain is temporary, or chronic, where pain is more long-term. Pain symptoms can occur anywhere around the body and may include sensations on the skin such as stinging, burning or tingling or deeper feelings such as aching. People can experience pain in the nerves, muscles, bones or joints. Inflammation may be present alongside the pain and in severe cases, pain can seriously limit a person’s physical capabilities. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome can cause a person to experience intense pain that gets progressively worse and seems to be out of proportion with the original cause, which may just be a small injury. Muscular pain may be accompanied by fatigue, aching and sleeping difficulties. Chronic pain may also lead to a person developing mental health problems such as depression.

Paracetamol is commonly used as a pain-easing medication. If the person is also experiencing inflammation, anti-inflammatory medication, such as corticosteroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), may help to reduce their symptoms. Opioids are used in the case of more severe pain and stronger types need to be obtained by prescription. Painkillers can be injected directly into the affected area. If mental illness is contributing towards the symptoms, it is important that this is treated; this can be done through antidepressants or therapy. Some people find acupuncture, relaxation techniques and massage help to ease their discomfort. Joint pain may be helped by glucosamine supplements. Regular exercise can help to strengthen the muscles and reduce musculoskeletal pain. Certain types of pain, such as abdominal pain, may be avoided by consuming a balanced diet and making sure that any allergens are avoided. Making appropriate life changes such as quitting smoking is an important step.
Experiences and case studies
An 82-year-old woman was suffering from acute pain in both lower legs that made it difficult for her to sleep, despite her taking painkillers and trying to use warm and cold packs. Despite their best efforts, her GP, an orthopaedic surgeon, a neurologist and a vascular specialist were unable to relieve her pain. Fortunately, after having her first bioresonance treatment, she was able to sleep through the whole night. Each subsequent treatment lessened her pain until she was pain free, without having to take medication or have injections.
