When you’re in pain, it may seem as if nothing else matters.
Whether it’s a dull ache or a stronger sensation, pain may interfere with your ability to enjoy life and even function normally. Yet, for millions of Americans living in chronic pain, the pain has become a way of life. Many cancer patients can identify with these struggles since pain is a common side effect of cancer. The most common pain types include arthritis, lower back, bone/joint pain and muscle pain, although pain may also take on many forms, changing locations or intensity daily or even hourly in the same person.
