    Default Pain black-outs

    So I guess it goes like this.

    Every time I might have injured myself, there's a minute or so of pain so intense I'm literally blacking out. However, by the time it fades, I'm not actually injured at all. There's no evidence of injury. There's no swelling, and all pain is gone within about fifteen minutes.

    The logical thing to think is that because this actually doesn't result in injury, I'm just such an obscenely wimpy person that if I actually were injured, say, even a sprained ankle, I would be in what I would describe as terribly obscene amounts of pain and probably be in so much pain as to be unresponsive. This is logical, because obviously not being injured hurts less than actually being injured.

    Unless I secretly have some kind of neurological disorder that nobody's told me about, I mean seriously.

    Is there a question here? I'm not sure if you are asking something or not.

    I actually have a pretty severe pain response nowadays. I got another ear piercing last month, for example, and the shock of the first one was like a spike driving straight through my brain and I got black around the edges of my mind. Intense pain does that for me, even if it's for things with no permanent damage. My body is just highly sensitive.

    I kind of just bite my lip and struggle forward with it.

    My question is what the flying fuck is wrong with me.

    I have a friend who has some sort of condition where her body is in pain a lot of the time. I forget what it is called though. Some kind of auto-immune maybe though. Statistically higher in women.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Well, if my pain reaction is anything like yours, then potentially nothing at all. You're just physically sensitive.

    If it's something else that is causing your physical or emotional distress, you probably need to talk to an actual doctor or Google your symptoms.

    Are you talking about fibromyalgia?

    This is causing me intense emotional distress because if I need teeth pulled it's going to be much more painful than lifting a glass dish, which caused me to black out a couple days ago.

    Where was the pain involved there?
