Recent Studies Show Chronic Pain Can Increase the Risk of Dementia in the Elderly

I read an article a few weeks back.... it was a study published by JAMA Internal Medicine. It stated that those experiencing chronic pain had an increased risk of developing dementia... it kind of makes sense. What do you think?

i agree melissa you can just imagine someone with chronic pain constantly you send your mind to a safe place not to feel it yes i can believe it does mnot not help but then we come to drugs to stop the pain
its strange we feel pain to know we are alive but there has to be an off switch for the damn thing

i suppose in some cases severe ones the mind invents characters to protect itself when my voices were having a real go at me zapping me off to all places and these things were going past the doorway to my mind i made a guard to ensure nothing comes in i know it is not the physical pain but its just to illustrate dementia is not nice it is to do with the mind
