I've noticed this too. Playing a game in an MMO (or even solo games) can reduce discomfort or pain from physical sources.

Obviously because it literally takes your mind off it. Instead of lying there thinking about how much you hurt, you're _doing_ something and instead of being focused on the pain, you can be focused on the MMO or game.

I'd have to agree with this. Right now, I am at home with food poisoning playing LotRO and I don't feel quite as bad as I did when I was trying to watch a movie.
