High Or Low Pain Tolerance

What Causes Low Pain Tolerance?

Low pain tolerance can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose low pain tolerance, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "low pain tolerance" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Low Histamine
  • High Histamine

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
excess nose/throat mucus
joint pain/swelling/stiffness
being highly motivated
frequent colds/flus
excess saliva in mouth
chronic nausea
good creativity/imagination
strong sexual desire
good cold weather tolerance
slender fingers and toes
childhood hyperactivity
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of low pain tolerance:
Cause Probability Status
Low Histamine 99% Confirm
High Histamine 52% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
