Did either of your parents deal with chronic pain while you were a child? In the interesting study, described in Health Day News, teens whose parents experienced chronic pain were more likely to experience it themselves. "The teenage children of people who suffer chronic pain are at higher risk of suffering from such pain themselves, a new study finds.The study tracked more than 5,300 teens (aged 13 to 18) in Norway and their parents and found that teens were more likely to have chronic nonspecific pain and chronic multisite pain if one or both of their parents had chronic pain." more
