Mental health problems can come with physical aches, pains and symptoms that can make life very difficult. They can go undiagnosed and untreated for a long time, with people getting caught up in a cycle of tests and appointments. Around 1 in 5 GP appointments are for a symptom that shows no results in a test.

This is a great, easy to follow video about chronic pain. It helps you understand what current research has been saying about chronic pain - thats its not a joint or muscle problem, rather a 're-wiring' of the brain perception of itself.
Why do we hurt? Do we actually experience pain, or is it merely illusion? In this video, Lorimer Moseley explores these questions, and position the pain that we feel as our bodies' way of protecting us from damaging tissues further. He also looks at what this might mean for those who suffer from chronic pain.
