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.

Yeh but the weird thing is, internal pain cant be controlled by the mind, it just hurts even if your trying not to think about it, the human body is a weird & wonderfull thing...

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.

good , happy to note your new thought . the external pain on the body is not being covered by mind. mind always think on forward direction and does not see the outside happenings.
