Pain is an uncomfortable sensation brought on by severe or harmful stimuli. “An painful sensory and emotional experience related with, or mimicking, actual or potential tissue injury,” according to the International Association for the Study of Pain. Pain is viewed as a sign of an underlying illness in medical diagnosis.

Pain pushes people to avoid dangerous circumstances, to safeguard a wounded bodily part while it heals, and to avoid repeating similar experiences in the future. Most pain goes away once the noxious stimulus is withdrawn and the body has recovered, but it can also last even after the stimulus has been removed and the body appears to have healed. Pain can occur even when there is no obvious stimuli, injury, or sickness.

In most industrialized nations, pain is the most prevalent cause for seeing a doctor. It’s a common symptom of a variety of medical disorders, and it can have a negative impact on a person’s quality of life and overall functioning. In 20 percent to 70 percent of situations, simple pain drugs are effective. Pain intensity and unpleasantness can be affected by psychological variables such as social support, hypnotic suggestion, cognitive behavioral therapy, enthusiasm, or distraction. Pain has been used as a justification in certain arguments for physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia to allow terminally sick patients to terminate their lives.

Pain is typically transient, lasting only until the noxious stimulus is withdrawn or the underlying injury or disease has healed; nevertheless, some painful disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, peripheral neuropathy, cancer, and idiopathic pain, can linger for years. Pain that lasts a long period is referred to as “chronic” or “persistent,” whereas pain that fades fast is referred to as “acute.” The distinction between acute and chronic pain has traditionally been based on an arbitrary time interval between onset and resolution, with the two most commonly used markers being 3 months and 6 months since the onset of pain, though some theorists and researchers have put the transition from acute to chronic pain at 12 months. 93 Others use the terms “acute” to describe pain that lasts less than 30 days, “chronic” to describe pain that lasts more than six months, and “subacute” to describe pain that lasts between one and six months. “Pain that lasts longer than expected” is a popular alternative definition of “chronic pain,” which does not have an arbitrary duration. Chronic pain might be “cancer-related” or “non-cancerous.”


The prevalence of phantom pain is about 82 percent in upper limb amputees and 54 percent in lower limb amputees. According to one research, 72 percent of patients had phantom limb discomfort eight days after amputation, and 67 percent reported it six months afterwards. Some amputees have constant pain that fluctuates in degree or quality; others have many bouts of pain each day, or the pain may recur less often. Shooting, crushing, scorching, or cramping are common descriptions. If the pain persists for a long time, areas of the intact body may become sensitive, causing discomfort in the phantom limb when touched. Urination or defecation can cause phantom limb pain.: 61″9

Small injections of hypertonic saline into the soft tissue between vertebrae produce local pain that radiates into the phantom limb for ten minutes or so, followed by hours, weeks, or even longer of partial or complete relief from phantom pain. In some individuals, vigorous vibration or electrical stimulation of the stump, as well as current from electrodes surgically inserted on the spinal cord, provide relief.: 61″9

Mirror box therapy gives the appearance of movement and touch in a phantom limb, which may lead to pain relief.

Paraplegia, or the loss of sensation and voluntary motor control caused by serious spinal cord damage, may be accompanied by girdle pain at the level of the damage, visceral pain elicited by a filling bladder or bowel, or phantom body pain in areas of complete sensory loss in five to ten percent of paraplegics. This phantom bodily pain is initially characterized as burning or tingling, but it can progress to severe crushing or pinching agony, or the sense of a knife twisting in the flesh, or the sensation of fire streaming down the legs. The onset might be quick or take years following the crippling injury. Surgical therapy is rarely effective in providing long-term relief.: 61″9.
