According to UPI.com, "Lack of sleep can cause existing pain to linger, opening up the door for opioid use and abuse, a new study says. People dealing with sleep deprivation have neural glitches in the brain that heighten and extend painful episodes, according to findings published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Matthew Walker, a neuroscience professor at University of California at Berkeley and study senior author, stated, "If poor sleep intensifies our sensitivity to pain, as this study demonstrates, then sleep must be placed much closer to the center of patient care, especially in hospital wards."
