Whether you’re suffering from a chronic condition or recovering from an illness or injury, your pain just seems to get worse at night. Nowadays, researchers have nicknamed this condition “painsomnia.” In fact, it’s common in people with chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other chronic health conditions. You should have a thorough examination to assess your health. At the same time, you should ensure adequate nutrition to alleviate anemia. Pay attention to perineal hygiene to avoid infection.
Chronic pain often is associated with neuropathic pain, which is caused by nerve damage. It often is described as tingling, burning, numbing, or lancinating (sharp) and may be described as a sensation of pins and needles. And the nerve damage might be caused by the anemia. You need consult a hematologist to confirm what conditions lead to it.
