Answers

Yeah, drinking will usually give you a higher pain tolerance (both mentally and physically). That's why you see, in those old "cowboys and indian" movies, when somebody needs their leg amputated, they just bring out the whiskey and let him take a few swigs.

Of course, if you're suffering from chronic pain, using alcohol isn't the answer. Using alcohol in general is usual a bad answer to anything. regardless, I hope I've helped you out!

um some drunks might have a slightly higher pain tolerance because when people are drunk, they dont really realise whats going on so if they are exposed to pain, then they would not realise and forget about it quickly plus when they wake up, they probaly would have forgotten about the pain.
