    Fantastic read here.

    I don't think there's any core issue that's more important than pain management as so much stems from it, it's not even funny. Of course I mean the opioid epidemic.

    I haven't read the link above yet. I will though. As a person with extensive experience with pain both as the victim and as an observer or responder I will simply say that for most acute pain, 75 percent of the extent to which one feels it is emotional.

    Emotional response or attitude plays a significant role too in chronic pain but in a different way. (Note: I'm not dismissing pain as not real or genuine, but am just pointing how a factor that is substantial in how they experience that pain.)

    On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being worst, chronic pain rated three is worse than acute pain rated at eight.
