Chronic pain can develop if injuries from accidents do not heal within a reasonable time.
Fibromyalgia is a type of chronic pain with symptoms such as whole body pain, fatigue, disturbed sleep, and headaches. The process of how and why fibromyalgia develops is still debated within the medical community. Fibromyalgia may develop after trauma, whether from a motor vehicle accident, an assault, or surgery. No matter what the cause, fibromyalgia can be disabling and often results in litigation in personal injury, disability insurance, and Canada Pension Plan cases.
Myofascial pain syndrome is another type of chronic pain condition that can cause long-lasting pain after accidents.
