      How much pain can you put up with before you seek medical/Dental help ?

      I would say I can go a while before I will consider going to get professional medical help. Say no I have a pain in my shoulder which is annoying and painful but I can tolerate it however if it got worse or unbearable that would be when I would go and see my doctor.

      My pain tolerance is pretty good, i guess.

      I had planned to go through labor without pain meds until the nurse strongly suggested the doctor was hinting at c-section and then i took a cue and took the meds. Bad thing is, the Staydal made me sleepy so i would pass out and then would wear off at the top of a contraction and then it felt like someone trying to crush me from inside out with cramps. Worst pain i've ever felt and that's saying a lot considering i had two very painful surgery recoveries prior to that.

      Anyway, i had to go through it without pain meds. Eventually the doc broke down and admitted there was risk of C-section and suggested strongly that i get the epidural. Best thing i ever did.

      Slept like a baby for 12 hours while staff came in and out of the room and checked on me.

      My daughter was delivered via emergency c-section 24 hours after i went into active labor.

      Can't figure out why they didn't do the surgery before then. But she was the first girl born in that hospital New Years day. And, that was at 9:04 pm.

      Would say the best part of the labor was the pain free part. Though I did well enough with the pain, just prefer the part without. That's the part where i was looking forward to her being born and not thinking about my own agony.

      Being pain free during the birth process helped me focus on the baby and not myself and that was an important time for me, preparing to be a mother.

      My pain tolerance is quite good but sometimes that can be a bad thing as I found out 4 years ago.
      I got up with backache and it gradually got worse as the day went on but I just assumed that it would pass but by teatime I ended up in a heap on the floor and couldn't get up so had to give in and let the wife call an ambulance at the Hospital I was seen by doctors then about midnight I was sent for a scan and by 2am I was on the operating table.So it doesn't always pay to try and ride pain out.
