Pain occurs as a defence mechanism of our body so we can stop using that part and give it some rest. It also indicates some internal malady and sets the alarm for us to get a health check-up as early as possible.
There are different types of pain, depending upon its cause. Pain can be due to some injury, bee sting, chronic and acute illness, etc. Different pains can be described by various sensations such as:
- Pulsating pain
- Aching pain
- Stinging pain
- Burning pain
- Stitching pain
- Drawing pain, etc.
Sometimes it is difficult to express the exact sensation of pain. It happens because everyone feels the pain differently. Though generally, the character of the pain depends upon the affected organ or part of the body. For example, pain in a hollow organ such as intestine will give a sensation of colicky pain, lesion of nerves will give a neuralgic pain, etc.
