Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic pain can be the result of an injury, illness, or nerve pain and can affect the entire body, from muscles to bones to joints.

Common types of chronic pain can affect the hips, back, knees, neck, joints and shoulders. Conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow can be the result of pinched or compressed nerves. Diseases such as diabetes can lead to neuropathic pain.

Diagnoses for chronic pain sufferers include conditions such as whiplash, Sciatica, Shingles, Phantom Limb Pain, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Central Pain Syndrome, Compartment Syndrome, depression and anxiety induced pain, and chronic muscle pain that results from overuse injuries and sprains and strains.

Possible symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease may include:

  • Shortness of Breath (dyspnea)
  • Persistent Cough
  • Sputum or Mucus Production
  • Chest Tightness
  • Tiredness
  • Rapid Breathing Rate (Tachypnea)
  • Wheezing
  • Enlargement of the Chest
  • Respiratory Failure
