Chronic Pain: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 03, 2016

Below the surface, living with chronic pain can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to chronic pain than meets the eye. We know that chronic pain comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyChronicPainTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with chronic pain, members discuss the chronic nature of pain and its hidden symptoms. MyChronicPainTeam has grown to reach 37,000 members and members have shared thousands of conversations about life with chronic pain! Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time on MyChronicPainTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent chronic pain symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a chronic pain diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread chronic pain awareness!



This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?

Crushing pain. My right leg constantly feels like it is being crushed, as if it was in some type of vice grip contraption.
