Pain is typically very overwhelming and becomes paralyzing for some sufferers.
FOX’s Michelle Pollino reports in this episode of Reality Check:
This is Reality Check.
Too much pain can drive a patient to the point where they consider suicide or even seek out a fatal form of relief.

Laurie Foster is an office professional with a hospital-based rehabilitation clinic. She spent three years healing following fibromyalgia syndrome, a chronic pain syndrome.
Plus, just in time for National Pain Awareness week, here is a new FDA-approved treatment called Kopra, which is an extremely non-addictive pain numbing material for adults.
Laurie and Kopra’s products both make great gift suggestions!
