In brief: Cystic fibrosis

Patients with CF can suffer from sinus, respiratory, pancreatic, and biliary disease.
They can also experience infertility, musculoskeletal disease, kidney stones, recurrent venous thrombosis, and small bowel obstruction. Obviously, some of these complications are associated with varying degrees of pain. It is probably more appropriate to ask about the overall morbidity of the disease.
