Pain is a way your body reacts to injury or illness. Everybody reacts to pain differently. Your report about your pain is the most reliable source of information.
Essentially, pain is the way your brain interprets information about a particular sensation that your body is experiencing. Information (or “signals”) about a particular sensation are sent via nerve pathways to your brain. The way in which your brain interprets these signals as “pain” can be affected by many outside factors, some of which can be controlled by special techniques.

All types of anesthesia are administered to keep you comfortable and pain-free during surgery, medical procedures or tests. But there are some key differences.
The type you receive will depend on factors like the procedure, your health and your preference.
General anesthesia is used for major operations, such as a knee replacement or open-heart surgery, and causes you to lose consciousness.
Sedation is often used for minimally invasive procedures like colonoscopies. The level of sedation ranges from minimal — drowsy but able to talk — to deep.
Regional anesthesia is often used during childbirth and surgeries of the arm, leg or abdomen. It numbs a large part of the body, but you remain aware.
Local anesthesia is for procedures such as getting stitches or having a mole removed. It numbs a small area.
