High pain levels linked with impaired memory in older adults
Older adults with high levels of pain are more likely to develop impaired memory than those with low levels of pain, a new study suggests. "These findings provide evidence that pain is a (potentially modifiable) risk factor for memory impairment, and they underline the importance of monitoring pain in older adults," lead author Dr. Guusje van der Leeuw of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City told Reuters Health by email.
