How Opioids Increase Chronic Pain
This document discusses how opioids, which are commonly used to treat chronic pain, can actually make the pain worse over time. By attaching to receptors on neurons, opioids initially prevent the transmission of pain signals to the brain, reducing pain. However, with continued use, the receptors become less responsive to opioids and only the pain-promoting signaling remains, leading to an increased sensation of pain. This cycle of increasing opioid doses to restore pain-preventing signaling ultimately perpetuates addiction and increases pain signaling. The issues of over-prescription, addiction, and opiate-related deaths are well-known, but this lesser-known issue of opioids causing higher levels of pain over time is often overlooked.
