WOMEN FEEL PAIN MORE INTENSELY THAN MEN

Posted on | January 24, 2012 | No Comments

MEN! Here’s yet another reason to hold her, pamper her, and just plain LOVE her.

A study of 11,000 men and women shows that women feel pain more intensely than men. The study included patients at the Stanford Hospital and Clinics with various conditions from cancer to infectious diseases. Using patient-reported pain scores, researchers were able to determine that women were more likely to indicate higher pain levels than men. The author of the study, Dr. Atul Butte, said, “That was the most surprising finding. We completely wouldn’t have expected such a difference across almost all disorders, where women were reporting a whole pain point higher on the 0-to-10 scale than men.”
