 Survey Says Back Pain Affects Sex Life

A new survey reveals back pain can be fatal for a happy sex life.

The survey, conducted on 2056 people, has revealed that 14 percept of them, have stopped indulging in physical intimacy due to effects of back pain, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Back pain also causes poor mental health, confessed a quarter of the respondents, while a third confessed the pain made them short tempered.

Around 15 percent of them said the pain led them to cry at work, and 12 percent found themselves arguing with family, friends and colleagues.

"Back pain affects lives in all sorts of ways, both physically and mentally, and not just for the sufferer but also for the people they come into contact with," Mark Critchley, spokesperson of bac<, which conducted the survey.
