Physical pain is a common occurrence for many, one of the most common symptoms complained of by the patient. Apart from a thorough understanding of the diagnosis symptoms and signs, the nature and locality of the pain must be observed thoroughly. Differentiation of nature of the pain is significant for deducing its etiology, while identification of the pain helps decide diseased organs and meridians.
Nature of the pain;
Distending pain: It manifests as severe distension, mild pain and moving from one place to another place, organ or place of the body is a typical sign of energy stagnation. It most of the time occurs in the chest, epigastric, hypochondriac and abdominal regions. But if having headache with a distending sensation in the head is due to up disturbance by fire and heat.
Dull pain: Such pains are not so severe. It is considered to be bearable lingering and may last for a long time. It is usually present in cold syndromes of deficiency type.
Pricking pain: It is sharp and fixed in place, a sign of stagnation of blood. It usually occurs in the chest, epigastric, hypochondriac and lower abdominal regions.
Weighty pain: It occurs with a heavy sensation in the body is a sign of damp blocking energy and blood, as damp is characterized by heaviness. It is often present in the head, four limbs and lumbar region.
Colicky pain: Colicky pain is a sign of abrupt obstruction of the energy by real pathogenic factors.
Pulling pain: Pulling pain, which is considered to be, spasmodic and short in duration often relates to the disorders of the liver.
Burning pain: Pain with a burning sensation and preference for coolness often occurs in the hypochondriac regions on both sides and epigastric region. It results from invasion of the collaterals by pathogenic fire and heat or from excessive yang heat due to yin deficiency.
Cold pain: Such pain with a cold sensation and preference for warmth often occurs in the head, lumbar, epigastric and abdominal regions. It is caused by pathogenic cold blocking the collaterals or lack of warmth and nourishment in the Yin-Yang organs and meridians due to deficiency of yang energy.
Hollow pain: Pain with a hollow sensation is caused by deficiency of blood leading to emptiness of vessels and retardation of blood circulation.
Neuropathic: Pain caused by damage to or malfunction of the nerves themselves. The peripheral nerve system includes all the nerves that lead to and from the spinal cord. These nerves send pain signals to the brain. If they’re injured, neuropathic pain may develop—pain caused by injury to the nerves themselves.
Nociceptive: Nociceptors are the receptors in the nervous system that get activated when there’s an injury. If there isn’t an injury from outside the nervous system, the Nociceptors aren’t active. Nociceptive pain, then, is pain caused by an injury to something other than the nerves. In chronic pain, though, the Nociceptors may still be sending pain messages long after the original injury has healed. The various types of chronic nociceptive pain are:
•Somatic – Soma means “body,” so somatic pain comes from injuries to the outer body—skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, bones, etc. It’s generally easy to find where somatic pain comes from, and the pain can be sharp or throbbing (depends on what part of your body is injured).
•Bone pain is a somatic pain. Bones can ache. If the bones have been weakened by another condition, such as cancer or osteoporosis, then you can have a very achy and very intense dull pain. Bone pain can also be acute: if you break a bone, such as, that is acute pain. If the bone heals but you still have a throbbing pain (it may be constant or it may come and go) that can be considered chronic bone pain. Muscle pain is a somatic pain. Chronic muscle pain is more than a strained muscle. Your muscles may have a chronic muscle spasm that causes them to be tense. This form of muscle overload can cause long-lasting pain, especially in the back. Muscle pain can also develop as part of certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia.
Acupuncture for Pain – for its efficacy in alleviating many kinds of pain. There are promising findings in most of the conditions. Pain is a feeling that triggered in the nervous system that may be sharp, dull, occasionally or steady, localized (such as back pain) or all over the body (such as muscle aches from the flu). Sometimes, pain alerts us to injuries and illnesses that need attention. Although pain usually goes away once the underlying problem is addressed, it can last for weeks, months, or even years. Chronic pain may be due to an ongoing condition (such as arthritis) or to abnormal activity in pain-sensing regions of the brain, or the cause may not be known.
Acupuncture for a range of pain conditions, such as postoperative dental pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, low-back (spinal any) pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, and tennis elbow and more.
