What's causing your pain?

Pain is a complex sensation and serves as a possible warning sign that something is wrong in the body. There are different causes of pain, and they vary depending on the situation. For example, damage to the tissue, muscles, or bones often leads to chronic or acute pain. Inflammation from an illness is a common cause as well. Even emotional stressors trigger physical pain in some cases.

The most common symptom of pain is a dull or sharp ache in a specific area. However, this sensation can manifest in various ways, including throbbing, shooting, burning, or tingling. The intensity also ranges from mild discomfort to intense acute pain based on the underlying cause.
