The internet is full of how redheads are different. They feel pain less or more depending on whether the pain comes from temperature or electric shock. It takes more anesthesia to put a redhead out and they react stronger to pain medication. Redheads react positively or negatively to some medications. All of this information can be confusing to say the least. To sum it up, and from the perspective of this redhead, is that we simply react differently to everything, medications, pain, environment and emotions. To everyone out there, I shout out loud — redheads are different from everyone else!
