Chronic Pain Syndrome - Kansas Board of Pharmacy

This is a preliminary Chronic Pain-Related Syndrome, created to search relevant ICD10 and a few key terms in emergency department visits in ESSENCE. The codes and terms are specific to non-cancer related chronic pain with exclusions of cases receiving cancer-related ICD10.

ICD10 codes were selected by translating the following ICD9 codes for Chronic Pain contained in this PDF (

into ICD10 using the ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM General Equivalence Mappings (GEMS) file from CMS found here (


The syndrome is intended for use in the CCDD field.

We are currently looking at translating this to SNOMED, but have not had the time to do this yet. This will be updated once that code is completed.
