Notice what the article found in the massage Middletown NY blog that quoted the Metro.co.uk news had to say:
‘Chronic pain affects a higher proportion of women than men around the world,’ said Dr Jennifer Kelly, from the Atlanta Centre for Behavioural Medicine.
‘We need to encourage women to take a more active role in their treatment and reduce the stigma and embarrassment of this problem.’
For example did you know that chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and migraines are more prevalent in women than in men .
On top of all of that scientists tells us that a woman's pain perception will vary according to her menstrual cycle.
How does all of this affect a woman?
The article concluded that since women are more likely than men to experience multiple painful conditions at the same time... This could lead to greater psychological distress and greater likelihood of disability.
