If a pain is not new, but have been troubling in more or less the same way and with much the same degree of severity for several months or more it can be considered as a Chronic pain. This type of spine-related pain will normally described as deep, aching, dull or burning pain in one area of the back or traveling down the legs. Chronic pain is often combined with numbness, tingling, burning, or a “pins and needles” type sensation in the buttocks and legs.
Chronic back pain tends to last a long time, and is not relieved by standard treatments. It may result from a previous injury long since healed, or it may have an ongoing cause, such as nerve damage or arthritis.
