What is it?

Pain is a general term that refers to the uncomfortable sensation that stems from activation of the nervous system. Pain could be described in many different ways- dull, sharp, stabbing, throbbing, pinching, stinging, burning, or sore. It could come and go, become worse or better, or be consistent. It could be chronic or sudden, it could come and go in the same time of year or due to the same trigger. Generalized pain may be felt in the whole body, such as the feeling when someone catches the flu. Pain is greatly subjective, and people have different levels of pain tolerance.
