Pain is usually a short term process and temporary in nature. When pain remains consistent and ongoing, pain turns into chronic pain. Chronic pain and the medications used for pain control will create reliance on these medications and leads to emotional distress. People who use/misuse and/or abuse pain medications often have problems with occupational, social and recreational activities. These activity deficits create feelings of isolation, depression and physical deconditioning all leading to increases in pain itself and the perception of pain.
