Pain is also the primary cause of disability in the United States. The NCHS estimates that as many as one in four Americans suffer pain lasting longer than twenty-four hours. Pain can be a side effect of cancer treatment or other type of treatment, can come with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or anxiety, or can be a chronic disease in and of itself. One problem doctors have in treating pain, is that it is completely subjective. Pain can’t be measured or judged by any criteria other than the patient’s own experience, although innovative ways to measure pain are currently being studied.
