Financial Woes May Lead to Physical Pain Decades Later

New findings published in the journal Stress & Health by researchers at the University of Georgia showed that adults hit with financial stress in midlife experienced physical pain nearly three decades later, reports UGA Today, the university’s online newspaper. For the study, researchers assessed data from 508 longtime married couples taxed with financial hardships as a result of the 1980s farm crisis. After controlling for concurrent health conditions, age and household earnings, researchers found a link between spouses’ financial hardship in the early 1990s and their development of physical pain almost 30 years later. Scientists concluded from supplementary data that it was more likely that money problems affected bodily pain and not the reverse. This can trigger physical and mental consequences that result in pain, physical limitations, loneliness and heart disease, among other health problems.
