When capillaries are damaged, the blood flows out of bloodstream and fills the
voids in immediate area with blood proteins which are always followed by water.
As the fluids push the cells apart they cause inflammation. The pain
experienced thru the sensory nerves is due to lack of oxygen to the cells when the blood protein and water
displace everything in its way.
Robert Held the finger tightly for some time thus minimizing the fluids
entering between the spaces of the cells thus limiting inflammation and resulting in minimal
Detailed Analysis of Pain
When a body experiences shock, the pores of blood capillaries in the immediate
vicinity of the shock, will dilate. The dilation is large enough to release a large amount of blood
proteins into the area around the cells which are normally occupied by lymph fluids.
The lymph fluids bring nourishment, oxygen and minerals to the cells and
remove dead matter and the waste products generated by the cells.
In the normal state, the cells are tightly packed with just enough space for
the lymph fluids to get around the interstitial space. If blood proteins enter this space, the large molecules
of blood and the water that follows the blood proteins, push the cells further apart and cause
The blood proteins cannot re-enter the bloodstream because the pressure from
the heart pumping blood is greater than the backpressure created by the flooded interstices. The only option for
the blood proteins is to be drained away via the lymph system.
The flooding creates multiple problems:
||it displaces the nourishing lymph fluids
||blocks access to oxygen reaching the cells
||creates an imbalance of the concentration of sodium on
the outside of the cell. This disrupts the delicately balanced Potassium-Sodium ion exchange
(equivalent to mini electric generators on the cellular level within the cell)
||the unbalance shuts down the ion exchange of ions and if
kept shut down long enough, the cell will either mutate or die
