Psychogenic Pain that is aggravated by prolonged psychological factors such as stress, agitation, anxiety, anger, etc. It is suggested by some that psychological factors cause acute pain to shift to chronic pain. Scientific data actually points to the opposite. People who suffer long-term pain usually display anxiety, psychosomatic tendencies, depression, mood disturbances, hypochondriasis, phobias, and sleep disturbances. When the pain is decreased some of these symptoms may dissipate but they should still be addressed. Treatment for this type of pain should be multi-faceted and address many of these issues.
