definition & descriptor terminology
A commonly used definition describes pain as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage.
A revised definition identifies pain as "a somatic perception containing:

(2) an experienced threat associated with this sensation, and
(3) a feeling of unpleasantness or other negative emotion based on this experienced threat" .
