    There is some new information that women may actually feel pain more often, or it may feel more severe with aging. Researchers have found that women may interpret pain in a different way and that the additional anxiety that accompanies pain may affect how women interpret the overall pain. This doesn’t change how pain is treated. But it does indicate that everyone with pain should be aware of corresponding problems, such as anxiety, insomnia, or depression, which can be specifically treated to give even better improvement in alleviating the pain and discomfort.
