Different Forms Of Chronic Pain in Urdu

دائمی درد کو ایک درد کے طور پر بیان کیا جاتا ہے جو چھ ماہ سے زیادہ جاری رہتا ہے۔ آپ اس تکلیف کا تجربہ اس چوٹ یا بیماری کے بعد بھی کر سکتے ہیں جس کی وجہ سے یہ ٹھیک ہو گیا ہو یا چلا گیا ہو۔ درد کے اشارے آپ کے اعصابی نظام میں ہفتوں، مہینوں یا سالوں تک رہ سکتے ہیں۔ دائمی درد کی دو بنیادی شکلیں ہیں، جن میں نیوروپیتھک درد اور nociceptive درد شامل ہیں۔ نیوروپیتھک درد ایک قسم کا درد ہے جو اعصابی چوٹ یا خرابی سے پیدا ہوتا ہے۔ اس کے مقابلے میں، اعصاب کے مقابلے میں جسم کے کسی دوسرے حصے کو پہنچنے والے نقصان کی وجہ سے ہونے والے درد کو nociceptive pain کہا جاتا ہے۔ دائمی درد میں، nociceptors اصل چوٹ کے ٹھیک ہونے کے بعد بھی درد کے اشارے پیدا کرنا جاری رکھ سکتے ہیں۔ آپ کے جسم کے بیرونی یا اندرونی حصوں کو پہنچنے والے نقصان کی وجہ سے آپ کو دائمی nociceptive درد کا سامنا ہو سکتا ہے۔

Summary about Different Forms Of Chronic Pain in English

Chronic pain is defined as an ache that continues for more than six months. You can experience this pain even after the injury or sickness that caused it has healed or gone away. Pain signals can last for weeks, months, or even years in your nervous system.
There are two primary forms of chronic pain, including neuropathic pain and nociceptive pain. 

Neuropathic pain is a type of pain triggered by nerve injury or malfunction. In comparison, the pain caused by damage to some other body part than the nerves is referred to as nociceptive pain. In chronic pain, nociceptors may continue to generate pain signals even after the original injury has healed. You may be experiencing chronic nociceptive pain due to damage caused to the outer or inner parts of your body.
