Is it true that nothing that can be done about chronic pain because it is a normal part of aging?


Not True! Changes in estrogen levels can impact the levels of inflammation throughout the body, which can then increase pain in multiple parts of the body. But pain is not normal, it is a signal that something is wrong. Talk to your healthcare provider about any changes to the levels of pain you are experiencing. If the underlying cause can be identified then treating the source of the pain is possible. Even if there is no clear cause, such as with fibromyalgia, your healthcare provider can help you find ways to manage the pain. Practicing self-care as outlined in the above material can also make a big difference.
