I think part of it to stems from our original days in basic training where we learn either directly or through observation that only weakasses go to sick call. Follow that with decades of sucking it up medically, taking Motrin, and pushing through the pain have taught many of us to ignore those little aches and pains that, thirty years later, are serious joint issues.
