Deficit sleep makes the pain stronger.
The results of our study conducted by Norwegian scientists showed that people who have sleep problems may be very sensitive to pain, potentially exacerbating chronic pain condition.
During the study, experts measured pain sensitivity in more than 10,000 adult volunteers that participated in the study, which began in 1974.
The results of large-scale studies have shown that people who suffer from insomnia, were much more sensitive to pain than people who do not have sleep problems. So, volunteers who feel constant chronic pain and those who suffer from sleep disorders, heightened sensitivity to feel pain.
" Sleep and pain are inextricably fl 'related. In particular chronic pain sometimes is more common in people suffering from a bad dream, and it becomes a closed circle.
Pain affects a person's ability to sleep, and shortage of sleep makes the pain stronger " - explains the deputy director " Center for sleep disorders " , MD David Neumer.
Results of the study showed that pain sensitivity is also directly attributable 'connected with the amount of time it takes a person to fall asleep.
