  5. Can painkillers cause pain?
Asked: 2018-03-31 07:15:02
I hurt my knee the other day and started taking painkillers but now I have pain in my back, is it possible that painkillers can cause pain in other places?

Generally, painkillers take all the pain away by numbing your pain receptors, however painkillers can cause issues like constipations that lead to pain elsewhere.

Painkillers are used to kill pain not cause pain, but everything has its down side so I suppose in one way or another painkillers can cause pain.
