Recently published data revealed an inverse association between omega-3 fatty acid and unacceptable and refractory pain among patients with rheumatoid arthritis, which may play a role in pain suppression.
Additionally, researchers also found a direct association between the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids and unacceptable and refractory pain among patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Neither omega-3 nor the ratio omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids appeared associated, either directly or indirectly, with inflammatory pain or systematic inflammation.
