Abstract

 Medical anthropology of the sensations considers the experience of PAIN on individuals and groups with a special focus on sensory perceptions to show that PAIN and the way of its experience is a something between biology and society. This paper is a description about the PAIN of ethnographer and four patients in a HOSPITAL in Tabriz. Leg breaking of the ethnographer, ideally, enabled him to become a native among the natives of the HOSPITAL: ethnographer/patient. Five day HOSPITALization and surgery experience of all five patients show that PAIN conceptualized and sensed differently, based on socio-cultural and personal contexts: from fatalism to agency and from perplexity to becoming self. Five patients in room 5 in section 3, have formed a sensory community of PAIN. Based on the lived experiences, some analytical concepts were developed: PAIN culture, dardmandi, hesbandi, sensory philosophies, horizontal world, horizontal body, sensory community of PAIN, and DARDNEGARI or PAIN-graphy. Writing with PAIN and about PAINs is a scientific and humanistic commitment of anthropology.
