Describing Your Aches and Pains

The words aches and pains may seem like two different words but with the same meaning. Though pain is generally used to describe any discomfort, it has a few differences. The discomfort you feel in your tooth differs from the one you experience from a broken bone. You may be able to tolerate toothache and go along with it, but the pain of a broken bone will likely require immediate medical attention.

Aches such as a headache, toothache, backache and neck ache usually provide discomfort that has occurred in connection to dysfunction in your body, which usually lasts for a short duration of time but can always be there, whereas pains are a result of a direct injury such as a cut, burn, hit or blow on your body, which lasts for a period of time dependant on the injury. Aches can easily be treated by medications 💉 to treat symptoms. Pain may also be treated with medications, but both aches and pains will come back after a period of improvement if the underlying causative factor is not addressed.
