Types of Somatic Pain Symptoms and Disorders

There are two different types of pain that we experience in our bodies: visceral and somatic. Visceral pain is one that you feel in a specific organ, like your stomach, bladder, uterus, etc. Somatic pain mainly arises from the skeletal system, including bones, muscles, joints, skin, and mucous membranes (inside of your mouth).
