Pain is the main symptom that causes people to go to a doctor. It can be acute pain which is usually more severe and short-lived. This is the type of pain that results from an accident of some sort. Chronic pain is ongoing and can be mild to severe. It usually results from some underlying disease or condition like arthritis or bursitis.
Substance P is a small peptide found in the brain and spinal cord that transmits pain signals from sensory nerves to the central nervous system. Substance P binds to a receptor molecule that actually relays the pain signal to the central nervous system. So if substance P detects joint pain, the feeling is transmitted to the brain with the help of a receptor molecule, is translated by the brain as pain and you feel pain. There are some compounds like capsaicin, found in chili peppers, that block the activity of substance P. So capsaicin is found in a lot of pain salves.
