One theory about chronic pain suggests that men and women may experience chronic pain differently because their bodies may “remember” pain differently. For example, a man and a woman could suffer pain from a ruptured disc, and the man could feel the pain leave as the injury heals, but the woman could continue to feel pain even after healing. The reason could be.
Between men and women, not all pain is equal. Scientists have known this for quite some time now; women are far more sensitive to pain than men. They also suffer more from painful conditions, including migraines, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, and their brains even process pain in different regions than men’s. One in five women suffers from migraine headaches, compared to one in 17 men.
Nine times more women than men are affected by fibromyalgia. Of course, sorting out the gender disparities of pain responses doesn’t boil down to women being the weaker sex. Rather, male and female bodies don’t process pain the same way. The men were 27% more likely to report feeling more pain after major operations such as heart and shoulder surgery, while women were more likely to show higher pain readings after relatively minor. This doesn’t mean women are weaker than men or their pain isn’t real, but they feel pain more intensely than men.
Pains specifically associated with women, such as menstrual pain, may predispose. While sex differences alone may not account for the variability of individual pain response, said keynote speaker Karen Berkley, a professor of neuroscience at Florida State University, growing research suggests that men’s and women’s nervous systems process pain information differently and act on it differently. What we do know is that when it comes to pain, men and women are treated differently.One study, for example, found that women in the emergency department who report having acute pain are less. One of the few studies to research gender differences in the experience of pain found that women tend to feel it more of the time and more intensely than men. While the exact reasons for this discrepancy haven’t been pinpointed yet, biology and hormones are suspected to play a role.
Women have more nerve receptors than men, so they may be wired to feel more pain. Even something as seemingly minor as the thickness of your skin or the size of your body can affect pain. Exactly why women feel pain more intensely—and in higher numbers—than men remains a mystery.
It’s not simply that women aren’t as “tough.” Pain is a.
