Pain is an unpleasant feeling often caused by intense or damaging stimuli, such as stubbing a toe, burning a finger, putting alcohol on a cut, and bumping the "funny bone".

The International Association for the Study of Pains widely used definition states:

"Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage."

Pain motivates the individual to withdraw from damaging situations, to protect a damaged body part while it heals, and to avoid similar experiences in the future

Most pain resolves promptly once the painful stimulus is removed and the body has healed,

but sometimes pain persists despite removal of the stimulus and apparent healing of the body;

and sometimes pain arises in the absence of any detectable stimulus, damage or disease.
