How is quality of life affected by chronic pain?
Chronic pain can take over a person’s entire life, dictating how much they can do and when they can do it. Decreasing activity can lead to weakness and increased discomfort. As the pain continues, you may find yourself avoiding enjoyable activities for fear of making the pain worse. You may have difficulty sleeping comfortably, leaving you exhausted and less able to bear pain. You may sense a loss of control over your life. With effective treatment, people can, with time and help, get back control of their lives.
