Pain Can Be Contagious, says Study

by

We all hope to avoid pain; however, in certain situations, it can be even worse to watch another person suffer. When our friends or family are hurting, we can endure serious emotional distress. Now, new research indicates that we can also experience actual physical pain in response to theirs.

When Caring Causes Pain

A German study indicates that people can experience real physical discomfort in response to a loved one who is suffering. In conducting their study, the researchers had numerous subjects listen from another room, while their loved ones made moaning and crying noises consistent with pain. Interestingly, this noise alone was enough to cause the same brain activity that happens in response to actual physical pain.

When Loved Ones Are Suffering

It can be hard for people to care for loved ones who are in pain. Unfortunately, each day countless Americans are forced to watch their cherished husbands, wives and relatives suffer through the trying symptoms of TMJ disorder. Sadly, since they don’t hold the power to treat this debilitating disorder, these people can offer little more than therapeutic heat wraps, ice packs and softer meals that aren’t so difficult to chew.
