Hmm, yes, I have experienced that, just as Wyld said it releases endorphins - our body's natural pain killers! But also like she said, it can feel wonderful for a while, but the pain DOES always come back.
Also, in my experiences, I am only pain-free for 20 minutes to a half hour or so afterwards... then the pain comes back twice as bad as before we began.
Sorry about your wife, but it is nice to meet you!!
