For some reason, we in society have come up with a scale of health problems that we deem ‘worthy’ and those that we deem unworthy of attention. We don’t really know when this happened or why, but it has made a lot of people not want to speak up when they are experiencing one of the problems that are deemed less worthy. However, doing this can cause you more issues, leading to worse overall health. In this article, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the health problems that impact more people than you realize, so keep reading down below if you would like to find out more.

Chronic Pain

The first issue that we are going to look at is chronic pain. Chronic pain impacts more people than you realize and is a very prevalent problem in the lives of a lot of people. Managing chronic pain is a difficult task at the best of times as it’s a case of trial and error to find the things that may ease the pain a little. It’s important to understand that it counts as chronic pain if it is an ongoing condition.

Some doctors won’t even diagnose you with chronic pain if you haven’t been to and from the doctors multiple times, but it’s still a very real problem. You can try things like pain killers, hot or cold compresses, certain types of tea and many more things to ease the pain that you are experiencing. There’s never going to be a miracle cure, but if it’s not as painful, it’s a win.


Some people would argue that addiction is not a health problem, but it absolutely is. When you are addicted to a substance, the makeup of your body actually changes to a point where you only want that thing, more than anything else. A lot of people who are suffering from addiction manage to hide it well in the beginning, functioning perfectly normally within society, some even purchasing ultra pure synthetic urine if they know their job has random drug testing. But, over time, this is going to change and things are going to become more difficult.

People who are suffering from addiction need help to overcome the problem at hand, but are often scared to reach out for it due to the stigma attached to it. But, addiction impacts more people than you know, so you’re not alone and it’s okay to ask for help.

I hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the health problems that impact more people than you realise. There is a lot going on behind closed doors that we know nothing about, and that is even true of some of the people that we know well. 

The point of this was to say that if you are experiencing any of these problems, you’re not alone even though sometimes you may feel alone. There is help out there for you, you just need to reach out and take it.
