In ease of duplicate questions, the "author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Alfred Lindner, 10, Nitro, W.Va. Do you ever wish you couldn't feel pain in your body? Well, you should consider yourself lucky that you can feel pain! Pain is your protector. If you didn't feel the pain of a toothache you might not care for that tooth in time to save it. If you didn't feel pain from touching something hot, you might cause yourself serious injury. Did you know that there are some people who have a disease which prevents them from feeling certain kinds of pain? It's called "syringomyelia." A person with his disease can touch hot things without feeling it, or stick a nail in his hand without feeling it, But what happens to such people is that they often do themselves great harm — Burning away tissue, receiving wounds without taking care of them, all because they didn't have pain to tell them something was wrong. Strangely enough, fSciencc still cannot explain fully how pain arises. It is believed that pain is due to an injury to the free nerve endings in the skin. F o r this reason, a very weak stimulus will not produce pain. In other words, these nerve endings in the sWn will pick up something as a "sensation" -r but unless there is a great deal of energy Involved, we' do not feel it as pain. In a very hot object, the molecules are moving with great energy, and so when we touch it we feel pain- As far as we know, the body doesn't have any special "receptors" lor pain. But there do seem to be special nerves that lead from where the stimulus is received up the spinal cord to the brain. The points on the skin that respond to stimuli with a sense of pain are known as pain spots. These pain spots are not distribu led qver the body equally, because there are some places where prac tic-ally no pain spots exist. Bu on the average there is one pair spot for every part of Ihe skit as big as Ihis letter "o." So there are aboul three million spots on the skin where pain can be produced! There are different types o pain — burning, cutting, gnaw ing, boring, and so on. What you feel as pain is probably a com bination of sensations, .including pressure, higher temperature etc. So pain is a "composition 1 of unpleasant sensations.
