The Association of Early Life Stressors with Pain Sensitivity and Pain Experience at 22 Years

Early life stress (ELS) can significantly influence biological pathways associated with nociception, increasing vulnerability to future heightened pain sensitivity and subsequent risk of pain events. However, very little human research has investigated the association of ELS, measured across multiple domains, with future pain sensitivity. Data from Gen1 and Gen2 of the Raine Study were used to assess the association between a wide range of early life stressors, including in antenatally, and pressure and cold pain sensitivity at young adulthood.
