Pain is often the primary urge that causes most of us to go to the doctor for a checkup.
If you look for definitions for physical pain, you will find that they are not uniform.
Pain tolerance does vary from person to person, but pain intensification has more objective metrics.
Physical pain - My suggested definition. (Without using synonyms for pain)
"Pain is a short or continuous alarm sensation caused by temporary or permanent cell damage (above a certain threshold) in tissue with sensory nerves ." Pain is a part of the self-defense mechanism.
Three factors determine the objective severity of pain.
- The Density of the sensory nerves differs in different areas of the body. The head area, palms, hands, genitals, and nipples are rich in sensory nerves so they tend to hurt more.
- There are major organs that are not pain-sensitive such as the brain itself, and the liver.
- The intensity of tissue damage Volume is correlated to The duration of pain, and the pain scale.
- Severe and prolonged tissue damage is more painful, lasting longer.
- The Regeneration rate of the damaged tissue is in direct proportion to the speed at which the pain passes. Skin cells, for example, recover quickly, so when we cut ourselves superficially with a knife, the pain passes relatively within a short time.
