When someone is experiencing acute pain from an injury or surgery, or even chronic pain, opioids are typically one of the first options chosen. Opioids trigger the release of endorphins and dampen the perception of pain, while boosting feelings of happiness and well-being. However, the relief they provide is temporary. When the pain is chronic, opioids become an even a bigger problem. The body craves those endorphin feelings, and someone takes more and more opioids to continue to get that feeling. As the body adjusts, they need to take higher and higher doses to achieve the same level of relief, which can lead to opioid addiction.
Chronic pain can impact your physical and mental health. Pain that may have initially begun from injury or illness can continue even after the body has healed from the injury. This continuous pain stimulation is caused by a miscommunication between the brain and nervous system, with the neurons becoming hypersensitive to pain messages.
