In this section you can find out about the experience of living with chronic pain by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 47 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as searching for a cause, pain management, medication and impact on lifestyle. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
