Well...why does my skin hurt when I am ill?
Well...why does my skin hurt when I am ill? Or more precisely, my question is why does my skin hurt when I am ill, but men never seem to get it??!!I have woken up poorly today, sniffy, tired, achey, headache and my skin hurts. It's just a virus I know that, but why does my skin hurt?? It's the skin at the top of my back, and my neck, it feels sore and sensitive to the touch. Now a couple of my female friends have confirmed that the same happens to them when they are ill,but every man I have mentioned it too looks at me with disbelief!! "How can your *skin* hurt!" they say. A brief survey of all my male friends has confirmed that none of them have had the skin hurting when when ill. I am assuming that the skin hurting is an immunological effect, but why then do men seem not to get it??Yours achingly,The Pox
