Does anyone here have an opinion or theory about this? When some people are in chronic pain, they overeat, almost like using food as a comfort, or some kind of emotional drug. However, some people who have chronic pain may even shy away from food and only eat to live because their pain is so unbearable, it can dampen their appetite. Unfortunatly, I fall into the first explanation, I overeat with my chronic pain. I suppose either behavior wouldn't be healthy, just something interesting to think about. Hugs, Chelz.
