Is external pain on the body controlled by your mind?

Ive been thinkin about this and remember if you have a bruise on your leg and you havent noticed it, its not painful??? but when your look at your leg one day and see the bruise thats when it gets sore??? i dont know if this has happened to any1 else, but it happens to me all the time...

Sometimes, it also happens to me. Our mind has a lot to do with what we feel. There are cases that we can stop the pain by simply not thinking about it. I guess then somehow pain can be controlled by our mind.

I think that it just depends on the person. For me, I don't think that my mind can control my pain. When I get hurt, I know it immediately. Fortunately I have a good tolerance for pain so I can deal with it and get over it quickly. I do think that people who do not have a good tolerance for pain can train their brains to lessen the pain. People under-estimate what our brains can really do. Our brains control every aspect of our body.
