Abstract

We conducted a prospective survey from January to September 1999 on a random population from the city of Turin, Italy, to highlight pain pathologies at various ages and possible differences between sexes. By means of a questionnaire, women were asked about age, profession, marital status, menstrual pain, type of delivery, number of children, onset and presence of pain of any type. Pain-related questions included its characteristics, familial tendencies, treatment, type, duration, daily and monthly quantity of medication taken, habits, previous pathologies, or surgical operations. A control group of men was investigated.
