Do Women Feel More Pain Than Men?

New research shows that women may feel pain more intensely than men do according to an article on medical website, WebMD. The study referenced in the article used the medical records of more than 11,000 men and women. After being asked about their conditions, and rating their pain on a scale of zero (no pain) to ten (worst imaginable), women said they felt more extreme pain in 14 of the 47 conditions reviewed by the study. Women suffered substantially more pain in the musculoskeletal category.

Why do women feel more pain? No one has a clue.  “We don’t know why. But it’s not just a few diseases here and there; it’s a bunch of them,” said Atul Butte an associate professor of medicine at Stanford University.
