Pain


Pain: Pain is a feeling triggered in the nervous system. Pain may be sharp or dull. It may come and go or it may be constant. You may feel pain in one area of your body such as your back, abdomen or chest or you may feel pain all over when your muscles ache from the flu.

Without pain, you might seriously hurt yourself without knowing it, or you might not realize you have a medical problem that needs treatment. Once you take care of the problem, pain usually goes away.

However, sometimes pain goes on for weeks, months or even years. This is called chronic pain. Sometimes chronic pain is due to an ongoing cause such as cancer or arthritis. Sometimes the cause of pain is unknown.
