Pain is often flammable, sharp and sometimes described as an electrical shock and can be categorized in three different ways as nociceptive, neuropathic and inflammatory. Nociceptive always originates in specific situations like in case of trauma. Neuropathic pain results in the case of nerve damage and inflammatory pain. In inflammatory pain, inflammatory mediators are involved in the sensitization of nociceptors. It is important to control the pain as it affects the individual physically, mentally, and socially.
