The word paroxysm refers to sudden outburst of action or emotion. In terms of disease or pain it can be said to mean a sudden such pain, recurring pain or intensification of pain. It can also refer to a fit or spasm of pain. The word "paroxysm" comes from the Middle English word "paroxysm" meaning a periodic disease or attack, taken from the Medieval Latin word "paroxysmus" derived from the Greek "paroxusmos" meaning "to stimulate".

The word pain means an unpleasant sensation that occurs due to a disease, and injury or emotional disorder. The pangs that occur during childbirth are also classified as pain.
