Pain experiences are common and normal. They usually are an effective, though unpleasant response of the brain to a threat.
Pain is simple and complex, at the same time. You might have lesions in your muscles, joints or anywhere else, and yet remain pain-free, as long as your brain decides you are not at risk. Sometimes, no measurable problems exist in the body tissues, but you will experience pain if your brain thinks you are in danger.
Pain is here to make us notice a situation, and do something about it. It is sometimes so effective, that we can hardly think about anything else. But if the situation requires it - think survival -, we may not experience any pain at all, despite a very acute injury.
Pain can and should be understood by all people.
Hopefully, you will find this journey useful and get insights on how to deal with it!
