Cleveland Clinic-Led Trial Reveals Differences in Pain-Relieving Drugs When Combined with Aspirin

Cleveland Clinic

Hangovers: Effectively Measuring Your Pain

Research Society on Alcoholism

Many young adults know firsthand that alcohol hangovers are unpleasant. However, few psychometrically sound instruments (tests that accurately measure personality, mental ability, opinions, etc.) have measured hangovers beyond the college-age years. This study investigated the psychometric properties of two interconnected scales – the Hangover Symptom Scale (HSS) and the Hangover Symptom Scale – Short Form (HSS-5) – among a) light and heavy drinkers, b) individuals with a positive or negative family history of an alcohol use disorder (AUD), and c) men and women in a post college-aged sample.
