There are a variety of substantial physical differences between men and women.
But a new study finds one that's not so obvious-- that at least when it comes to pain, men are the weaker sex.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


Researchers at the University of California in San Francisco say that women not only feel pain differently than men, they respond to treatment in a different way.
They compared how men and women reacted when given two different analgesics-- known as capa-opiods while having a wisdom tooth pulled.
The women got greater pain relief than the men, even though the women reported higher levels initially.
Researchers say this is more evidence that clinical studies need to be designed with women in mind.
