Just when you think you have seen it all or you probably know it all, Mother Nature and science keeps on surprising us. There are more than 10,000 types of pain, over 50 for each parts of the body.
 In this post we have put together different forms of rare pains you probably have never heard of in your life.
1. Giant cell arteritis
This is a really painful form of headache, and the cause of this headache is still unknown, but the condition is extremely serious. We do know it's linked to inflammation and almost always seen in people over the age of 60, who often also feel pain around their ears when chewing with these types of headaches. Also About one-third of people with giant cell arteritis eventually go blind. Treatment is done with steroids as soon as possible to prevent blindness and dramatically improve the pain.
2. Trigeminal neuralgia.
This pain is more common in older people. It is felt at the temples and around the jaw and is similar to an electric shock. It is typically triggered by something like touching the face or brushing the teeth, and people with this condition may experience several shocks a day, most possibly due to an artery pressing on a nerve. Muscle relaxants might help, according to the National Headache Foundation, but if a patient with these symptoms is younger than 55 or so, it may also be caused by a neurological disease.
3. Scoliosis Pain.
Scoliosis pain often occurs when underlying (non-scoliosis) spinal conditions are aggravated by postural distortions (scoliosis).  In some cases the underlying condition would have developed anyway, and is only painful because it is combined with scoliosis.  In other cases the scoliosis causes the underlying condition by putting stress or pressure on various parts of the body.
4. Dyspareunia.
Dyspareunia is pain felt during or after sex. It’s one of the most common gynecological complaints and its surprising how most people don’t know the name for it. It affects eight to 22 per cent of women. According to the Sexual Advice Association, dyspareunia from time to time is normal, but if it happens often it can become a problem.
The main reasons for this are it impacts on a woman’s sex life and can cause her ongoing distress.
