  • No, not at all...I'm 5'2" and I have a very high tolerance to pain. That's what 13 years of having migraines will do to you though

  • Nope. My mom is tiny and she has a super high pain tolerance. I'm fairly small too and mine is pretty high. The nurses were amazed at how soon after my c-section I was walking around like it was nothing. They told me they had all been talking about me and how "tough" I was being, lol.

  • No our younger daughter is tiny and has a much higher pain tolerance than her sister.
