Acute pain is brief, intense, and arises suddenly, limiting your activities almost immediately. Acute pain is usually associated with a specific injury or a medical intervention — such as surgery, for example — and usually goes away as the body heals. For acute pain, you would take medication as needed for a short period of time until the episodes of pain subside.
