"Ow." :P Or sometimes, I laugh.

Or if it's too much, I can just completely take myself away from it by reciting poetry in my head.

I always say ouch nonetheless. Even if it doesn't hurt or not much, I still say it. Sometimes I breath hard and take deep breaths as if I am in labor or just standing still when I hit a funny spot on my bone. I have even felt like I was knocked out or something while I am not even unconscious. I get hit and I am walking thinking about the pain not really thinking. I remember I got hit in the head with a softball while I was up bat and I heard a sound and I started to walk to first base and then I hear, "leave the bat here" from the umpire. I toss the bat back to home plate and go to first base and the pitches asks if I am okay and by the time I got to third base, the pain is gone.

But yet when I got hit in the leg with a softball, I cried and cried and I had this huge bruise on me for a month. Then another time I was hit in the face with the ball when my team mate threw it to me and I had a bruise below my eye for maybe a week. I also cried when that happened.

But yet when I fell on my elbow in 2007, it felt very funny and it hurt when I move it. But the pain got worse and worse and then I was crying so mom told me to go into ER. Turns out my joint was broken but I had no cast. But I still managed to shower and get dressed and moved my arm a little since it was required. I even used the computer with both hands.

I remember another time I got a very bad cold so it hurt to keep my eyes open and the light was bothering me. I also had a very bad headache. I had to go home and I slept and the next day I had to call in sick and I slept all day. I felt fine lying down but when I be sitting up or standing, my head would hurt again and my eyes. Worst cold I ever had.

But as a child I used to cry more often to pain and always cried when I fell down. But I guess I got so used to it it didn't hurt at much by the time I was a pre teen.

As a kid, I enjoyed putting a piece of Easter grass between my teeth and rub it in my gums treating it like it's dental floss to enjoy the pain. My gums would bleed and I enjoyed it. I don't do it anymore because I think it's not good for my mouth.

pain is just a way of relaying impact.
hit something->"pain"->does it still work?->ignore

i just keep on using whatever has been hurt, i mean, a black spot or something isn't anything to worry about, ignore and keep going.
the only pain i react to is that of loud noise and bright light; i get away from those asap.

Running pain I usually just fall down to the ground and just lie there for a moment.

But, I had a 20 mile run that was reaaaallly painful, so I sorta yelled from it for a minute.

When I have a small annoyance I just say freak, and mumble underneath my breath.

When it is pain I bring on myself, then I usually enjoy it (but I rarely do that, and it is usually started unintentionally, crap, thinking about it makes it irresistible).

If I have sore muscles, I say ow a lot.

Oh, if I have a muscle that starts hurting when I am running, and I need to finish, I just repeats: ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow,

Finally, with stomach aches, I rumble sorta. If that makes any sense?

Depends on the type of pain and what's causing it.

I find the "bone pain" such as a bruise doesn't hurt as much as something like a cut. I have never broken a bone, so I don't know about that.

If I am physically hurt, I don't want sympathy and don't like talking about the injury at all. I don't like it when people say "Aw, I'm sorry", I know they are being nice, I just don't like it. I will often act like the pain isn't as bad as it is. I have a high pain threshold, so it's not all that hard sometimes.

I do enjoy my hair being pulled (not in a sexual way) lightly and don't actually mind it that much when someone pulls it hard.

I tend to get embarrassed when I am in physical pain, and don't tend to go around complaining. Of course, I would tell someone if it was a concern, but for mild pain? No. I usually resume my everyday activities.

it is a miserable affair, and it is best to have nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Yes, completely agree.

It's very odd... like stuff coming from the skin is irrelevant, but stuff coming from the internal organs is processed as overly significant. I'll just put it down to my weird sensory system and leave it at that.

I'm just the opposite. Pain on the skin is overwhelming, especially when something sharp breaks the skin. Getting a blood test is excruciatingly painful. I won't say that pain that comes from the inside doesn't bother me, but it's much more manageable, even when it's for an extended time. (I was bedridden for two months with a herniated disk and not even Vicodin made the pain go away. It was awful but not nearly as bad as getting a blood test.)

I also find that emotional pain is very hard to tolerate, and it lasts much longer, sometimes for years.

I was told by a specialist that Aspies tend to be either undersensitive to pain or oversensitive.

I`m scared of pain! I HATE pain! I cry at the doctors sometimes not all the time, and I scream and cry when I have ear infections! There`s a lot of things I can`t handle! My brother use to flick me and I use to complain and get really angry and now I think he stopped for the most part!

Actually I only flew once and surprisingly my ears were fine. But I had a hole in my eardrum at the time and now that it`s fixed I feel a lot of pressure on the ground so I can`t imagine what my next airplane ride is gonna be like (whenever that will be) and my other ear use to be fine but now it has a lot of pressure in it too!

If you do want to be careful about it (because I know the pain of a horrible airplane ride, and I know hoe to fix it)....go to the drug store and get theses things called "earplanes"...they are great for pain.

Speaking of pain, I got stung by a scorpion on my leg and thought it was a bug bite last night. Then it crawled in my shirt and stung my back a few times.....it was painful, but I just was saying ow for a few minutes, and then I ignored the pain through music.

In most cases, I can "shut it off". In other words, I feel it, but I disconnect from it so that it's not hurting me. I think it's called Biofeedback. There are a few instances where I cannot do that, including tooth aches and headaches. But broken bones, "painful" injections, surgeries, etc., aren't an issue. I have a master fear of general anesthetic and of "twilight" sedation, and I refuse to have it. So when I needed a minor abdominal surgery about 15 years ago, I had a big argument with the surgeon over not giving me any general anesthetic.. I wanted to be fully awake and compus-mentus. He reluctantly agreed after I agreed to let them put an IV in, and have the anesthetic ready in case I would change my mind when they started cutting. I didn't change my mind, and it went 100% fine. He did use local anesthetic where he made cuts, and in fact there really wasn't any pain to ignore... Just pulling & pushing and weird pressure. The surgeon had been performing that procedure for 30 years on 100s and 100s of patients, and I was his first one awake.

I also am into bodypiercing, and I did all of my own; both nipples, both ears, and another one not to be disclosed in the all-ages forums. :wink:
