as well as in the sinus cavities around the head. We had no say in where these nerve concentrations should be. These can be great pleasure areas as well as pain areas. I hate when the Red Cross would stick a pin in my finger tip to draw blood for blood donations, direct link right to my brain.

Next best thing to having someone else holding the nail before you hit it, is to smear Ora Jel over the hit area and lightly bandage it. In a couple of seconds the pain will be gone. The purpose of the bandage is to keep the Ora Jel from rubbing off so you can keep on working. Also works great for burns.

Better yet to use a screw or nail gun to avoid these mishaps.

I agree that as CH sufferers we should be more sympathetic to those in pain.
