Anyone Else have a Reduced Pain Tolerance?

Answered on August 19, 2014

In the few 6 weeks or so I have been doing paleo I have noticed I have a lower pain tolerance, not really for chronic pain but for the sort of thing that is sharp and incidental. Has anyone else experienced this?

That is an awesome idea. My sense perception is a little wonky since I get classic migraines and so "spidey senses" are a semi-regular feature of my life. But now that I think about it I have been concerned that I was getting a migraine quite a bit the past two weeks because light has seemed brighter.

I didn't think of that. I does seem to just be on the sharp sort of pain, not the dull achy sort which I think kind of argues against opiates, but I am not sure..

That is possible. I just noticed this way because using an epilator used to be easy and now brings tears to my eyes.

New one on me! Maybe your overall nerve impulses and tactile senses have improved in general.

Are pleasurable sensations 'louder' as well? Maybe your nerves are more efficient after being handed better repair materials in the form of food.

I noticed some thing similar for a few weeks (about A month into going primal), and then I adapted to the new higher 'level' of signal.

I just call it *being more alive*.

hmm, it was happening at about the same time that I wrote this: http://paleohacks.com/questions/5930/old-senses-seem-new-sense-of-smell both are all about the nerve conduction...

Maybe it's just a temporary thing because you're no longer being stupefied by high levels of carbohydrate (which as most people know anecdotally, makes one sleepy) or the opiates from wheat?
