LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - All you need is love. It's not just a song, and new research suggests intense feelings of love may actually relieve pain! The Stanford University study found the areas of the brain activated by feelings of all-consuming love are the same areas affected by pain killing drugs.
While doctors are not suggesting chronic pain patients can be cured by falling in love; however, they hope understanding this better may lead to new ways to produce pain relief.
