What is PAIN? According to Mr Dorland(that's what i call Dorland's pocket Medical Dictionary),Pain is a feeling of distress, suffering or agony, caused by stimulation of specialized nerve endings.
In medical term pain sensetion is what we called as nocioception or nociperception. Nocioceptor is the pain receptor.
How we can feel pain is the connection and interaction between the nerve circuit at nocioceptor to the central nervous system(brain) and then after it signal(impulse) is interpreted the signal will be send to the appropriate area.
For example, when you touch a hot kettle, you will immediately move your hand away from the hot kettle.
Unless, your nociceptor is damage.It can happen in chronic diabetic patient because they have neuropathy which is death of nerve.Usually at the peripheral area like fingers and toes which are the common sites for gangrene in chronic diabetic patient.
Nocioceptor is important because it can prevent us from further damaging ourselves and prepare the body for recovery.
Subahannalllah...Don't you ever think how we can control this in less than seconds?? How can the brain interpret everything & decide in a short time??
Aren't we human a WONDERFUL creature which have a brain with intelligence(akal) that differentiate us with animals and plants
It must be a great force who create us....Which is ALLAH.
Al-Quran has already talk about nocioceptor...long before the discovery of it.
Those who reject our signs, we shall soon Cast into Fire;
As often as their skins, Are roasted through,
We shall change them, For fresh skins,
That they may taste, The Penalty: For Allah,
Is Exalted in Power, Wise
"Al- Quran is not a book of science but a book of 'signs'. Thus, you won't find a direct answer. However if you read or try to find the correlation between the 'signs' with science you will be amazed.
Some people may need only one sign while others may need hundreds to believe the divine origin of al-Quran.Some would be unwilling to accept the truth after being shown thousand signs"
