It hurts

By 'it' I mean 'all of it.'

In German, they add the word pain, schmertzen, to the name of the body part hurting. Fußschmertzen, Augeschmertzen, Kopfschmertzen translate to foot pain, eye pain, head pain.


After losing my recent battles with office furniture (did I mention that, in addition to losing the fight with not one but TWO separate chairs, I ran into the edge of a open filing cabinet drawer at work today and gouged my hairy calf?) I have what can only be described as Gretchenschmertzen.
