Why do women complain so much about pain compared with men?

For certain types of injuries, it does seem that women are affected more with pain than men. While years ago it was thought that it was because women were the "weaker" sex, research is beginning to show that women do actually have more pain and experience in a different way from men in some instances. How and why this occurs, doctors don't know yet. It is known that women also tend to have more disabilities that involve pain, such as fibromyalgia and migraines.
