    I think you might want to research this a little more, I think there are many more ways to describe pain!

    Yes, but the purpose was to identify only the most common and to keep it concise . There are probably as many types of pain as there are people in the world!

    I can't tell what it feels like. So, I won't vote.

    For my legs - I guess I could say that it's like a real bad toothache.
    My feet and knees are burning (or freezing - it depends)
    I have a real bad backache - the normal type
    Excruciating pain in my neck and head.
    Abdominal pain is like menstrual pain (but guys would not know that)
    Earache, sore throat, migraines.

    I could keep going.

    If you had "pounding," "numbing" and "paralyzing," "fevers" and "chills," I could answer "all of the above." Then there's the pain of post-exterional malaise. That's a pain there's no name for .... as though your blood cells are screaming as they move (under protest) through your veins.

    Extreme stiffness is a sort of pain also. Aching to the bone 24/7. Burning/freezing parasthaesias in legs and feet, lancinating pain in hips and knees and the list goes on! ;-)

    Yes, way too many to list I know. Im sorry that I cant relate to some of the descriptions you mention above.

    My pain is basic: FM-like in nature. A flu-like achiness all over my body. So I am grateful? that I have nothing more.
