Pain & Your Body
Pain and how to deal with it is always a big topic in this day and age. I'd say mainly because we have not been given the skills on how to naturally help ourselves. Our doctors usually will tell us to go consume some sort of drugs. And, maybe we even think ourselves to just go and take a pill. The issue here is that all we are doing is blocking out what our body is actually feeling. In the end, I'm not sure how this is helping with safely and productively deal with what is happening to our bodies.
New Research on Pain
A trigger stimulates pain, that is usually a given. But, pain is still possible to be felt without a trigger. With or without a trigger, pain is often influenced by your emotional state. Fear, anxiety, and sadness can all make pain worse.
Our pain transmission system can be hypersensitive in the mist of injury and go haywire/stay in a sensitized state long after the injury has healed. This pain can be termed a disease, caused by a nervous system that is malfunctioning. Neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome are all examples of this.
Scientists are currently researching ways to activate the brain's internal abilities to control pain and decrease the suffering that is associated with it.
