Pain is something that many of us feel, but it cannot be seen and is quickly forgotten. For those living with persistent chronic pain conditions they often feel isolated as others cannot comprehend the impact pain has on every aspect of life. Chronic pain is not visible, it often prevents people from enjoying a full life, as work, family and social life are impacted and the condition can also greatly impact on sleep.
