Pain feels different depending on many things, such as how far spread out it is, and how quickly it comes or goes. If you work out your arms, they get sore the next day and the pain is spread out. If you stick yourself with a pin, it hurts and the pain comes from one very specific spot very quickly. When people describe sharp pains, they’re usually describing pain that comes from one very specific spot, as if they got stuck there with something sharp like a pin.
