As someone who worked in the medical field for years, the majority of patients that complained of pain, were squeamish about blood and needles, and
had to often be talked into being still for procedures, were male.
I walked around on a broken ankle for nearly a week before I went to get an xray. The second broken ankle, I didn't even take painkillers of any kind
while waiting the five or so days for the surgery. I've had 3 kids, 2 of which were very painful prolonged deliveries and one of which I ended up in
the hospital before the baby was born for a severe kidney infection which spread to my bloodstream. The labor pains triggered by the infection were
just as strong as the real thing, but no meds because of the baby. Once or twice each month I have to endure a very nasty migraine that leaves me
exhausted and wrung out from the pain. Lets not forget the menstrual cramps each month that have gone into overdrive because of oncoming menopause.
So, yeah... I really do think women deal with pain far more than men even realize. I often say nothing at all and just push through it because there
are too many things that have to get done and they won't get done if we're laying about.
