What is pain?

Pain can be a warning sign for other harm occurring in the body. There are many common causes for why you may suffer pain and any disease or cause must be identified (if it can be) to help you access the right treatment. 

There are, however, instances where the cause cannot be remedied without specific medication, intervention, or treatment, or the cause cannot be identified with a scan or blood test. These types of pain will not directly harm you but can impair your quality of life. 

Everybody's pain is different and pain can differ depending on factors such as its cause, how you feel it, whether you get respite, if it affects your sleep, what you are trying to achieve or manage in life, and how it affects you mentally.
