Your brain 'runs' the most efficient 'programs' possible to keep you moving. The question to ask is whether it has become efficient for you to run a 'sick and tired,' or 'hurt and pain' program. Research shows pain medications are harmful to the body and brain and cause an actual increase in pain sensitivity over time. This might mean the pain you are feeling is due to and / or magnified by the pain medications you use. Opiods in particular are a risky option for pain management.
