Words to Describe Pain

In this week's blog post I thought I would continue with my love for lists, and publish a list of words to describe pain. In my newest writing project I have already encountered several opportunities to describe pains of all sorts. So, I thought I would consolidate what I have used so far and share them here. Since this is not an all inclusive list, feel free to add to it in the comment section. Hope you find this list as useful as the others!
