What are Pain Symptoms?

Pain symptoms may be acute or chronic bouts of a range of pain levels, from sudden sharp, jabbing pain to dull aches. Although pain and discomfort are difficult to experience, the sensation is one of the body’s most effective tools of communication. When you experience pain, you know that something has occurred that requires attention.

Beyond the physical effects, pain symptoms also have emotional effects. While the pain itself may be manageable, the inability to participate in daily activities takes a toll on a person’s emotional health and well-being. People who live with chronic pain often experience depression, anxiety and anger. Even traumatic events that cause acute pain may be perceived as a threat to one’s life goals and dreams.

What Causes Pain Symptoms?

Pain symptoms most often result from damage or injury to the soft tissues, organs and bones of the body. Nerve damage and injury, though, also causes pain symptoms. Of the three types of nerves in your body, sensory nerves are responsible for detecting sensations such as touch and pain. When these types of sensations are detected by sensory nerves, a signal is sent through the nervous system to the brain. The brain then classifies the type of sensation and responds as needed. In the case of pain, the brain sends a signal to the affected area to respond in a protective manner, such as pulling a hand away from a hot stove.

What Conditions Cause Pain Symptoms?

Some of the common causes of pain symptoms are

  • Chronic conditions, such as arthritis
  • Breaks or fractures to bones
  • Tears and stress injuries to the ligaments, tendons and muscles
  • Inflammatory conditions, such as fibromyalgia and bursitis
  • Allergies, tension headaches and migraines
