Broke Guy 357

No one enjoys being broke and scientists have now discovered why being broke isn’t a good thing.

According to a new research, not having enough money can cause you physical pain.

A series of studies conducted at the University of Virginia found people were more likely to experience physical pain in situations involving financial stress, according to a Medical Daily report.

The research which was conducted by lead author Eileen Chou of the University of Virginia and published in the journal Psychological Science, found that there is a positive relationship between financial instability and physical pain.

In a press release, lead author Eileen Chou said:

“Overall, our findings reveal that it physically hurts to be economically insecure. Results from six studies establish that economic insecurity produces physical pain, reduces pain tolerance and predicts over-the-counter painkiller consumption.”

Financial stress often causes people to feel out of control and this psychological turmoil appears to spread throughout the body.
