The Philosophy Of pain is plain and simple.
To manage it requires a steadfast approach of simplicity, compassion and patience.
To process and act appropriately to pain means to use the stoic attitude and do no harm.
To elevate pain is usually complex and will usually abate when the stimulus is removed from the equation.
To evaluate pain sometimes requires a third party like a friend, family member or a physician (perhaps all three).
To act on this advice is to make an informed decision which is difficult at best and more so with pain present or whose arrival is imminent.
