比较简单的描述疼痛的方式

其实用这两个词就可以

【 hurt/painful 】

The most common way of talking about pain in English is using the verb hurt. There are two main ways of using this verb: you can say that a part of your body hurts, such as “my ankle hurts,” or you can use “it hurts” when explaining something that is painful to do, like “it hurts to walk.”

在英语中谈论疼痛的最常见方式是使用动词hurt。 这个动词主要有两种用法:你可以说你身体的一部分然后它hurts,比如“my ankle hurts(我的脚踝疼)”;或者你可以直接说用“it hurts”再加些解释,比方说“it hurts to walk.(走路的时候疼)”。

 

疼

 

Also very common is the adjective painful. This is a simple way to describe any type of pain, for example, “my neck is painful.” You can also use the phrase “have a pain in” if you want to talk specifically about where your pain is. For instance, “after falling asleep on the bus, I had a pain in my neck.”

用形容词painful表示疼痛也很常见。这是描述任何类型疼痛的一种简单方式,例如,my neck is painful(我的脖子痛)。你也可以用have a pain in这个短语来表达你疼痛的具体部位。例如,在公共汽车上睡着后,I had a pain in my neck(我的脖子疼)。
