Features of subjective experience of pain

279

Abstract

This is a review of various approaches to the study of the peculiarity of subjective experience of pain, namely the emotional aspect of pain perception is considered. Within the framework of this study, the main theoretical approaches to the study of the emotional well-being of patients suffering from pain syndrome has been identified. Also, the literature review showed the presence of a persistent relationship of pain syndromes with emotional disor- ders, in particular the depressive spectrum. This relationship is largely due to the physiology of the course of neu- rotransmitter changes in pain and depression. To take into account the constitutional features and nosogenic reac- tions, an integrated approach to the study of the phenomenon of pain is required.
