    Myself, sometimes when it happens, try to convert it to pleasure. kinky as it may sound, it seems to work for me anyways. Pain receptors and pleasure receptors to the brain must be closely linked, without going into detail. Focusing intently, enough to at least or fully dull, what at times can be excructiating stuff.

    How do you deal with it?

    I swear.

    In fact I swear by swearing.

    And now I have an excuse, too: Why the #$%! Do We Swear? For Pain Relief: Scientific American

    The other thing that helps is deep breathing. A few months back I had surgery and the post op exams were painful - it isn't really appropriate to lie on the exam table swearing like a fishwife, instead I used my breathing and chi exercises from my aikido days. It was helpful in making my body relax to make the doc's job easier and therefore faster. It didn't really lessen the pain though.

    pain into laughter


    Few years ago I dislocated a rib and any time I would laugh it cause a lot of pain. They would do it purposely by the way.


    Ever since then I would laugh if someone cause any physical pain to me.

    Most crotch pain is good pain, unless it is obvious that something is wrong.

    I deal with bad pain with Advil.

    Pain is only pleasurable for me when there's sex involved.

    Even when it's non-sexual though, I don't tend to see pain as a big deal. I have a fairly high pain tolerance - I feel it, but I find it fairly easy to ignore. It really does depend what body part is involved and what kind of pain you're talking about though - chronic, acute, sharp, aching, etc.

    Pain also comes in other forms. Emotional pain is another, apart from the physical. I suppose this is where , speaking for myself, look for the positive in everything. It helps.

    Made me smile, I swear on the inside. Sometimes a fucking, fuck, fuck, fuck in a tone a bit louder helps :) :)

    Pain during sex needs to be consensual, trust and truth needs to be well established. When the product of pleasure stimulated by pain borders are founded. Looking into eyes and knowing the unknown has a safe outcome, heightens the moment. Or moments.

    Constant pain is of the worst kind. It can wear down ones reserves very quickly, knowing there is no end in the short term. I am interested in hearing how you dealt with it.

    I live on Tylenol arthritis and whatever else I can get my hands on. I use Biofreeze and China Gel sometimes on the shoulders. My favorite part of the day is taking off my bra.

    Oh, do I know what you mean! I had constant nerve pain for 10 months until surgery finally fixed the situation. Horrible, horrible pain. Plus I have chronic migraine problems, so pain is something I'm very familiar with.

    I try to stay away from painkillers as much as possible but will use them when necessary. I finally found a medication for migraines, but the nerve pain was something else. I used deep breathing and visualization. I never let myself give in to the pain. I would keep telling myself, "I am in control of the pain - pain does not control me". When it would get too bad, I would distract myself with doing something else that would change my focus.

    Chronic pain really can erode a person. Sometimes I would feels so depressed and guilty. Depressed that I couldn't participate fully in my own life; guilty because I couldn't do things with family. I had to really work on changing my thought process and focus on the positive. I had to use my sense of humour and make sure I didn't take anything out on my family and friends. I focused on the lessons that the experience could teach me.

    So glad the nerve pain is gone!

    Hey, I had surgery a month ago too! Fortunately, it seems my surgery worked.

    I was lucky though, my office accommodated my inability to walk, stand or sit for very long. Otherwise, there is no way I could have afforded to be at home the entire time. And I never went out - couldn't shop, pump gas, or walk more than a few feet at a time.

    Working took a lot out of me. I would try to hide the pain at work, but once back in my car, there were many times I would just sit and cry from the pain. But I barrelled through somehow. Even when sleeping seemed impossible and rolling over would make me yelp in pain.

    Believe me, I know what you're talking about. I'm so sorry the surgery hasn't helped you.

    I prefer to think of it as heightened sensation :cool:. I try to never cause unintended pain.

    I have lived with migraine since my mid-20s. After years of farting around and ignoring it, I finally saw a neurologist. After weeks of tests, it was determined that my headaches were cause by degenerative disc disease in my cervical spine (neck), along with frequent osteophytes (bone spurs). There is impingement on virtually every point in my neck. Last time I inquired, my condition was inoperable.

    I take a ton of Ibuprofen at the moment. When I had better health coverage I saw a pain specialist, but the treatment was a very mixed bag. If I was able to remain virtually pain-free, I was a drooling, hyperemotional wreck. I was also known to occasionally light myself on fire with a poorly-timed cigarette. I stepped down from the worst of it, and eventually learned to control my response to the pain (if never the pain itself).

    I'm due to get an upgrade in my health coverage sometime between now and Christmas. At that point, I'll need to decide to what degree I resume being a chronic pain patient under the care of a specialist. I do know that doctors frequently admonish me for the amount of Ibuprofen I consume, but it's the only thing that puts enough of a dent in the pain to allow me enough mobility to live my life.
