International health insurance customers might want to take heed of expert advice and discuss painkillers with their doctors.
According to Dr Rob Hicks, a UK media doctor and practising GP, many people still don't talk to GPs or pharmacists about which painkillers to choose.
"If they've got a pain that's not going away, and isn't being successfully treated by the treatments they are using – ask for advice," he urged.
The comment followed research from Opinion Health that revealed women are 'putting up and shutting up' when it comes to pain.
In fact, 86 per cent of the women surveyed said that they had been taken painkillers over the past year that were not sufficient in their relief.
Dental pain was cited as the strongest pain suffered by 34 per cent of women, followed by back pain (20 per cent) and headaches (18 per cent).
