mypainfeelslike…’ campaign launches animation with Ivan Yates to help get the most out of your GP visit before going on holidays this summer  

Research announced by the ‘mypainfeelslike…’ campaign found that 49 percent of people living with persistent or chronic pain in Ireland find travelling or going on holiday difficult because of their pain. Just over half discuss their pain with a healthcare professional once a year or more, but almost one in five claim to never discuss their pain with a healthcare professional.1

To aid people when visiting their GPs, the ‘mypainfeelslike…’ campaign has created an animation with Ivan Yates on how to get the most from your visit – especially before going on holidays this summer


The campaign is a collaboration between Grünenthal Pharma Ltd and Chronic Pain Ireland and supported by Multiple Sclerosis Ireland and The Parkinson’s Association of Ireland.
