Pain is a strange beast
Pain is a strange beast with so many different things affecting how you perceive it. It is, therefore, no surprise that most do not realise that it is primarily simply a warning that something might have happened.
Yes, pain doesn't tell you that you have injured your self only that you might have!
How can this be I hear you ask?
Like many things, it's all about context. There are conversations I have with friends that would be entirely inappropriate to have with others. This is because the shared, 40+ years in some cases, history isn't there. They know I'm joking etc when it at first glance doesn't sound like I am etc.
Pain is very like this. How you perceive it is based a lot on your own individual history. All your experiences, both in relation to painful events, both emotional and physical, illness and general social support, what you do for a living and more go into how you perceive pain.
