I have been suffering chronic pain in my left hand from last fifteen days. Sometime the pain is moving from shoulder joint to my pniky finger. 15 days back I was slept in a spring mattress. the quality of that mattress is not up to the mark.
next day morning when i weak up I could not able to move my left hand for the chronic pain. I thought that it will be run out with in short time but it is increased day by day. some time pain moved from neek shoulder to elbow to fingers. some time pain gone and come again with any single movement. Sometime my muscle also shacking with the pain. now my left hand became Little weak day by day.
Doctors prescribed me some pain killer but it is not working. I have two surgery in my left elbow for the accidental broken hand . Even my collarbone also broken 2 years ago.
Is anybody know why this thing happened ?

    Differences between Acute and Chronic Pain

    Acute pain is normal pain that warns that you've been hurt. You smash your finger with a hammer, break a leg, put your hand on a hot stove, etc
    Acute pain starts quickly and also ends quickly.

    The pain itself becomes a disease. When the pain you have been experiencing last much longer than the normal time period for such a problem. Chronic pain is normally identified when a patient has a pain problem that is lasting more than 6 months

    Put that aside, there is not really enough information you provide that could help anyone come up with anything that might make sense. Sleeping on a bad mattresses can cause some pain, but that is normally associated with long term sleeping on a bad mattress. Plus that type of pain is generally more acute and can be corrected easier.
