Default Chronic Pain Affects Almost 70 Percent of Americans: Survey

A new poll from the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) suggests that nearly 70 percent of Americans say they or someone they care for experienced pain in the previous 30 days. The poll also showed that 48 percent of the people who responded do not believe that proper treatment can ease chronic pain, while 41 percent believe pain is simply a part of aging. Researchers also found that 34 percent of respondents believe that the side effects of pain medications are worse than the pain itself. Experts say this finding suggests that chronic pain is a serious and unaddressed public health issue that should more fully addressed in conversations between doctors and patients.

I shattered my left knee a few years ago. Hurts every day. I go to work anyway, because there are too many illegal immigrants and welfare recipiants counting on my paycheck for me to afford to take a day off. Besides, if I take a day off, that comes directly out of what my family gets, but doesnt really affect the others that are leaching off my paycheck.

The other 66% think the side effects are the best part!

I know this is meant as a joke but the side effects suck. If a person is truly in pain the meds treat the pain only so it is livable - not gone, along with multiple side effects that also make life harder in other ways.

If there is no real pain then the person gets a "high".

Willing to bet those 70% of people don't take care of their body by eating healthy or working out.

I will agree. I used to have knee pain a lot when I was heavier, now they only hurt when I first start running.
