According to statistics from the 2015 Sleep in America™ Poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation:
Nearly a quarter of those who suffer with chronic pain report higher stress levels
Nearly half of those who suffer with chronic pain experience problems at work due to pain-related sleep loss
People who suffer with chronic pain lose 42 minutes a night of sleep because of it. That translates into nearly 5 hours weekly, and over 10 days annually. Sleep debt like this can be extremely difficult to overcome
A third of those who suffer with chronic pain cannot get enough sleep even when they try to do so for their health and well being
Clearly, pain is the enemy.
