Chronic pain can develop if injuries from accidents do not heal within a reasonable time.
Fibromyalgia is a type of chronic pain whose hallmarks are whole body pain, fatigue, disturbed sleep, headaches and other symptoms. The process of how and why Fibromyalgia develops is still not clear to medical science. In some cases, however, it seems to have developed after trauma, whether from a motor vehicle accident, an assault, or surgery. No matter what the cause, Fibromyalgia can be very disabling and often results in litigation in personal injury cases, disability insurance cases and Canada Pension Plan cases.
Myofascial pain syndrome is another type of chronic pain condition that can cause long lasting pain after accidents.
