Sex differences in pain do exist: The role of biological and psychosocial factors

  • Gary B. Rollman (a1)
  • Published online: 01 September 1997
Abstract

The evidence favoring sex differences in pain seems compelling (berkley). This commentary considers the role of such factors as anxiety, somatosensory amplification, and coping style in accounting for the differential response to pain in the laboratory and clinic, and emphasizes the need to base evaluation and treatment upon individual reports rather than gender-based stereotypes.
