Pain: we’ve all had it. Pain levels can range from just an annoyance to extreme discomfort. A lot of times, pain is a good indication that something is not working properly in your body.
Acute pain starts quickly and is normally sharp in caliber. It is a red flag that some form of disease or a threat to the body is happening or injury has happened.
