A recent study has revealed that stress in one’s life that can be explained by the abuse one may have suffered as a child abuse, can cause a “long lasting mental disturbance.” This can in turn make people feel more vulnerable to chronic pain from such conditions as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis & arthritis.
The findings are revealed in the January issue of Headache: The Journal of Head & Face Pain. More of the article about this topic can be found here.
While we never like one to feel as though he or she is “responsible” for an illness that there was no control over, it may also be assuring to find that other people who have chronic conditions, may have experienced some of the same situations or history in their lives as others who also suffer.
