When pain affects your sleep

pain sleepPeople around their 50s start to have changes, physically and physiologically. A lot may feel that sleep starts to become a problem. Some wake up in the mid of night and could not fall asleep again, while others find it difficult to sleep at all. Poor sleeping then affects their daily activities, easily fatigued, mentally tired even cognitive functions drops. Recently, a published research paper titled "Poor Sleep Predicts Musculoskeletal Pain in Older Adults" by Lara C Pullen, revealed link between poor sleep and widespread pain in the body of those aged 50 or more. Another research (McBeth, Lacey and Wilkie) yielded similar finding. When pain severely affects one's sleep, the patients usually seek medical help and take sleep pills or painkillers to maintain their conditions. Only these put them in a vicious cycle, of drug dependency or worse that the dosage must increase in order to relieve the pain, which lead to more chance of side effects hence bringing about negative impact to their daily life greatly.
