London: Popping too many painkillers can actually make your brain more sensitive to pain, leaving you prone to further headaches, experts have warned. One in 50 of the population regularly has headaches triggered by the very drugs meant to be numbing their pain. The risk is highest for those who take aspirin, ibuprofen or paracetamol at least every other day to treat either a headache or another condition such as joint pain. UK`s health watchdog National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has said that taking too many of these pills can actually make the brain more sensitive to pain. Often they get into a `vicious cycle` whereby their headaches get worse, they take more drugs and the pain becomes even more debilitating.
