It is here to alert us that something is wrong! It is a necessary defence mechanism, which helps us to survive and be safe.
Pain is a sensation that hurts. It creates discomfort and causes us distress. Each person experiences pain differently, and that means that pain a very subjective experience.
Also, pain can be acute or chronic. The acute pain usually results from an accident or illness and is often short term.
On the other hand, the chronic pain may arise from an acute medical condition, or sometimes there may not be a clear explanation for it. In this case, the pain is long term.
Some symptoms relating to pain are dizziness, nausea, weakness, perspiration, etc.
