Why physical pain is difficult to control?

It really depends on the individual. Everyone has a different pain tolerance. Someone who has a high pain tolerance is able to handle a larger amount of pain without having to take anything for it. Some people have a lower pain tolerance, which means they do not handle pain well.

In addition, some physical pain is more difficult to deal with. If the pain is in a part of your body that it is hard to avoid moving - your foot or knee, for example - it would be more difficult to control.

If you are a having a difficult time with pain control, discuss the different options with your doctor.
