Abstract [en]

To investigate the prevalence of pain in older people (75+), compare those in pain to those without regarding demographics, social network, functional limitations, fatigue, sleeping problems, depressed mood and quality of life (QOL), and identify variables associated with pain, a cross-sectional, prospective survey was conducted in an age-stratified sample of 4,093 people aged 75-105 years old. Those reporting pain (n=1,654) were compared with those who did not (n=2,439). Pain was more common with higher age, as were all complaints among those in pain and among those without, except sleeping problems. Lower QOL was found with higher age, as well as with pain. Pain was found to be associated with functional limitations, fatigue, sleeping problems, depressed mood, and QOL. These data highlight the importance of identifying old people in pain. Those who are older and those affected by pain are at greater risk of also being troubled by other problems, such as functional limitations and lowered QOL.
