    Re: sore,painful,aching,above,aboved

    1. If something it sore it hurts, especially if something bumps against the affected area. ("Don't touch that. It's sore.")
    2. If something is painful it causes pain. ("Bending over is painful because of my back condition.")
    3. If something is aching that means the affected area produces a dull, throbbing pain.
    4. What are the differences between the above sentences?
    5. No.
