Does having a high tolerance for pain mean you could have a high tolerance for painkillers?

No, pain tolerance and drug tolerance are two almost completely different things. Pain tolerance is mostly psychological; basically how much discomfort you can take before you cave. If a person lives with chronic pain or painful injuries for an extended period of time, the person can eventually get used to it. The mind eventually can rework itself to set that level of pain as its zero point. You still feel the pain, but it doesn't bother you anymore. Drug tolerance (ie painkillers) is physical: your brain is used to a certain level of the drug, and requires more of the drug to feel the effects. Drug tolerance is often the immediate precursor to drug addiction. People with high tolerances for pain often become tolerant of painkillers sometime in their lives, but eventually stop relying on drugs at all.

Does prince albert piercing hurt?

Everyone has a different tolerance for pain. To give you the degree of pain that you will feel if you get this piercing will depend on your tolerance for pain. If you have a high tolerance for pain then it shouldn't hurt too bad...if you have a low tolerance, it will one of the most pain full experiences of your life. If you think about it, the piercer is putting a tube down your urethra and then sticking a needle into your penis. It's going to hurt but how much is up to your pain tolerance.

How to know if you have a high tolerance of pain?

I think you find out by being in pain (not that I recommend it).

The sensation of submersion in ice water is synonymous with pain, and will give you a good gauge by which you can determine your tolerance level in a relatively safe way.

What is the difference between Pain Threshold and Pain Tolerance?

Pain Threshold is the level at which a person first begins to experience Pain from a stimulus, either artificial or biological. A person's Pain Tolerance level, is the overall level of Pain a person can tolerate before breaking down either physically or mentally. A person's Threshold level increases as their Pain Tolerance increases - this can be achieved either through deliberate means in those who have not been injured or otherwise have no other reason for Pain (Martial Artists are the best example of this) or in those with chronic pain it will occur naturally over time. Martial Artists such as myself use techniques to increase both the Pain Threshold and Tolerance level. It is that training which has provided me with the best pain control over the years, even though I also use very high doses of opiates for pain control. Pain Tolerance can also be elevated with opiate drugs, and is the basis for most pain treatment programs. While human Pain Threshold is relatively low for most people (it doesn't take much to feel pain - even a needle or pin prick will do) Pain Tolerance is another matter. The human body can withstand a lot of pain before breaking down, and for those like me who deal with constant levels of high pain on a regular basis every day, the tolerance level is very high, almost dangerously so.
