Why is it so hard to describe pain?

is it just because you cant teach the meaning of the word unless you deliberately hurt someone knowing how they woudl feel it?


not hard for me, to either represent it, or understand it..I deal with it all day long in re: to helping people with it; sometimes others, esp medical professionals, can help you describe it by the questions they ask, I guess you can say, it doesn't matter if you can or can't cuz the right people will get it out of you somehow...& ya don't have to hurt a soul...cuz frankly, that doesn't make you feel anything...except guilt maybe...
