Behavioural problems linked to future pain10th March 2010
Researchers from Aberdeen University say that children with behavioural problems are twice as likely to suffer chronic pain as adults than others.
Scientists followed the lives of more than 19,000 children covering a time span of 45 years and think faulty hormone signals in the brain may play a key role. In findings published in the journal Rheumatology, they point to bad early life experiences as possibly harming this brain system, causing both behavioural problems in childhood and chronic widespread pain in adulthood.
