Unfortunately as we age it seems to be more and more difficult to avoid pain and to come up with ways to address it as well. The longer we deal with pain the more effect it can have on our lives in a variety of ways including these 3 big ones.

1. Fatigue

Pain can make you feel absolutely run down for a variety of reasons. Your sleep can suffer and the following stress can make you feel like you have less energy. You may try to get more sleep or even try exercising to help with energy levels and cope with the pain.

2. Bad Mood

Your mental state can be heavily affected by pain, constant aches or mobility problems can lead to frustration, anger, anxiety, and sometimes even depression. This makes it important to address any additional stress you may be experiencing from other areas of your life and of course attempt to address the underlying pain you are experiencing.
