When you exaggerate and dramatize your pain, you directly exacerbate the neurological end of the chronic pain problem.

Individuals were excluded if they had any underlying neurological conditions or intake of analgesic medication within eight hours prior to pain sensitivity assessments to avoid confounding bias. This explains lots of interesting results in pain research not to mention clinical observationslike the cognitive functional therapy results in the last section, and the fact that the most powerful factor predicting how soon people return to work after an episode of low back pain is whether or not they expect to return to work, 30 and the fact that education alone probably helps to resolve neck pain.

Point one is an important source of reassurance for many people.

Values lower than (either positive or negative values) indicate a less-than-perfect correlation coefficient.
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the relationship between personality characteristics, as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) (form G), and an acute pain response in postadolescent men.
