Pain is our bodies way of telling us to get away from something. If you hold your hand to a flame it starts to hurt because your body is trying to tell you the flame is going to burn your skin. If you fracture a bone in your arm then your arm hurts to try and tell your body that you shouldn't be using it because something is wrong. Same goes for internal pain. If you have a stomach ache you could be getting the signal to stop eating or you could have a stomach virus. If you don't feel pain then you will never know when you are injured and could end up further injuring yourself.
Pain is a very unpleasant necessity. It acts as a danger signal, to warn us that something is wrong with a part of the body. If we did not feel pain, very serious damage might be done without our being aware of it until it had got beyond curing.
Toothache, for example, draws attention to a tooth that has begun to decay. If the warning be heeded in time the tooth may be saved.
