Abstract

We have assessed the incidence of four types of self-reported pain symptoms (headache, pain in heart or chest, pain in lower back and muscle soreness) in a randomised sample of 1413 persons from a population of 93481 students aged 14-16 years in the Veneto region of Italy. In males, 26% reported moderate and 1.2% severe pain distress. In female, 35% and 3.7% reported moderate and severe pain respectively. Pain symptoms were positively correlated with anxiety and depressive symptoms and were more frequent in females.
