Is it possible that I feel pain more strongly than most people?

Pain Tolerance. Pain tolerance is unique and individual. It is often influenced by your emotional state. If you are depressed and anxious, you can be more sensitive to pain.
Yes. There are variations in the way individuals experience pain. Women generally have a lower pain threshold than men and it varies with the menstrual cycle. Fibromyalgia is defined as having a lower threshold to experience pain. If you have a region with painful muscles you may experience something called central sensitization, where your pain threshold is lowered throughout your body.
