Pain has an emotional component, and some patients are more emotional than others. Studies show that being in a bad mood, stressed, or angry can make your pain more noticeable. It is objectively the same stimulus, but you feel a more intense pain sensation if negative emotions take your mood.
That’s why alternative remedies such as aromatherapy are useful for pain conditions. They have a soothing effect and make you reduce stress levels, which also reduces the sensation of pain. Orange oil essential oils are recommended in these cases, but many others may also work.
