Description words for a custom field does not show in issue view

I have length description text attached to custom fields.  An example of risk level field is below.  When I create a new risk issue, my well thought out description text doesn't show after the risk has been created.   Is there a configuration switch to show issue field description text ?

@andrew.edwards  Description of a Field is only visible in Issue Edit View Screen.

You won't see the description while viewing the issue, Once you enter Edit view of issue you will see the description.
