How Do You Respond When Someone Tells You "you Just Have A Low Pain Tolerance! Don't Be Such A Baby."

I usually, in a nice way tell them they are free to have their opinion , but until you have walked just a few hours in my shoes with the electric type shock pain shooting thru their hands and fingers, while dealing with joints that are stiff and don't want to bend and all the while have migraines day after day and have to function on a daily basis with out pain meds because you are allergic.....only then do you have the right to judge me.

I always reply with, I gave birth to 3 large babies with NO pain relievers, and I have teeth drilled without shots to numb. I have a very high tollarence to pain, but that is pain with a purpose and an end. The constant nagging extreem pain. No no one can just suck that kind of pain up. Sometimes when Im flaring and my body decides to say make a foot feel like its broke, I sometimes even bruise. So No Im not a baby. Walk a day in my shoes, then we will see what you think.

My answer is think about the aches and pains you get with the flu then triple it on a good day and multipy 50 times on a bad day.

you mean those people who don't know anything but think they know cuz they read one article somewhere. I tell them to look it up. Then I tell them this for me. I used to have high pain tolerance. Really high where my mom would find burns and cuts on me and wonder why I didn't cry. Broke my wrist didn't cry. Punched in arms by friend to prove I don't feel it. Now I feel a little flick from my husband to be. My son can't play around with me cuz it hurts. So really tell me how I am just being a baby after 32 years of not feeling most pain.

That is how I answer them. Rude people need to be educated about things.

Or just shake our head and say I pray you never have to go though this or watch someone you love go though it. Because I know your tune would change really fast.

Just my input. I have zero patience for rude, arrogant people.
