A member asked:

Why do some people have a high pain tolerance? does it have to do with their nervous system?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Genetics: Biological variation clearly explains the diversity. But in general, have found that women seem to have a higher pain tolerance than men. Suspect this is really more on a higher cortical function level, brain function, rather than peripheral nerve receptors.
