While the study was on menstural pain, it suggests the same effect on any other type of recurring, chronic pain. Thought it was interestsing. I know when I am in a lot of pain with my colitis, it really affects my moods. And if it is recognized when people have pain a few days a month, think what it can do for people who have pain almost every day of the month!

very interesting article, i am a believer of the pain thing, because I can't evan tolerate the kind of pain I get anymore, if I feel i'm going to have a (I call gas/bile blockage) usually lasts anywhere from 4 hr to 3 days, with super sore where my resections surgeries were, thats the area that gets inflammed and then it narrows when its inflammed, could cause obstuction, in which I;ve had 2 emmergency surgeries, so I've had cd for 40 years and I just take vicodin and try to avoid those painful situations, if I can catch it in time with vicodin, but if I'm out without pain med's, I've had horrible situations, usually out with family and I shouldn't have eaten food, something that is perfectly normal for a normal stomach.anyway my point is my brain can't handle pain, I've had to much in my life

Yea, people who live without a disease have NO idea how lucky they are. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be able to go to the bathroom without pain or eat without pain. A simple thing that people probably take for granted every day.

I used to just Cowboy up and take it when I first got sick. Being raised on a small farm I was taught to be tough and have a father that will not use any pain medications. I have watched him multiple times go and have cavities and root canals without even a tylenol. Now I look at my father and ask myself why? Why in this day and age should we have to suffer intolerable pain? I have yet to have a pain free day in the 7 years since my diagnosis but now I am smart enough to take medication to help me function. I was not living at all when I was not taking pain meds and now I can atleast get out of the house and feel like a man. I take 3 lortab 10s every day and do not feel the least bit guilty. My doctor is the one that talked me into it after seeing me suffer with the abdominal pain and severe arthritis. I am only 30 years old and should not have to walk around like a crippled 80 year old. I hate the stigma that pain medications are given in the media because all that seems to be focused is the fact that too many people get addicted to them. As a person who is dependant upon the positive effects of the medications, I can tell you that I now get no euphoric feelings and have the same effect of a tylenol on a normal person. I do not get total relief of the pain but I do get some and that is worth more than I can fully express in words.

I'll give an AMEN to that! Well said! I just wish more doctors had your doctor's point of view. It makes sick people suffer because some people use pain pills the wrong way. It sucks, really. I am glad you are smart enough to take the meds so you can have a good quality of life. Also, pain is not good for a body, you go downhill and don't heal properly from what I've been told.
