Wondering what means your pain is chronic? Here is a short list:

- An injury such as a back sprain can become Chronic.
- An illness or viral infection also can be the cause.
- Often there is no apparent cause of the pain. It gradually begins or starts suddenly.
Chronic Pain And The Nervous System
Chronic pain is different from acute pain because it affects the nervous system. It is a disease of the nervous structures, the nutrients, amino acids, and the neurotransmitter metabolism. This is why medical foods are far more useful but what are these metabolic arrangements.
Our nervous system relays messages of pain to our brain. These are throbbing, stabbing, and piercing discomfort. The message flows from muscles, ligaments, bones, and joints. It destroys your sense of who you are because you cannot think about much else.
Amino Acids play a significant part in our cells, muscles and tissues carrying out essential functions like giving our cells their shape. With depletion or break down you may have tendon pain. They are also necessary for healing and repairing wounds, tissue, and muscles, bones, skin and hair. Amino acids help with the removal of all kinds of waste deposits produced in connection with the metabolism.
Let’s not forget nutrients. If your body does not get enough all things within your body, begin to break down. There is something called methylation and if you cannot absorb all the minerals and vitamin in your food or supplements taking them does not matter.
With nutrition, the thing to remember is if you have chronic pain most of the nutrients are going to combat tissue damage and inflammation. B vitamins, for instance, assist with stress relief, hormones, and other physical processes. If they are being used to relieve the pressure of your discomfort, there’s little for other functions.
The Role Of Neurotransmitters
