Sharp pain is identified as blood stagnation in Chinese medicine. In Western medicine, sharp electrical pain usually relates to nerve pain.  

Dull pain is identified as qi stagnation in Chinese medicine.  In Western medicine, dull pain is usually related to muscle pain.

 

Qi flows through the meridian channels of the the body much as the air that we breathe circulates in the red blood cells of our vascular system

Our ancient texts describe meridians as the vessels holding or transporting the qi, blood and body fluids throughout the body. 

From the strong force of an ocean to the subtleness of a bubbling stream the flow of the meridians moves in a continuous cycle twenty-four hour cycle. When this flow is interrupted in anyway, pain and dis-ease results.  

In Chinese medicine we are always looking for balance or homeostasis. This is a characteristic of a system that regulates its internal environment and tends to maintain a stable, relatively constant condition of properties. The normal value of a physiological variable is called its set point.

When Chinese medicine is used in conjunction with allopathic care it provides an inexpensive, safe, evidence-based and non-invasive form of treatment.
— NIH Consensus Report, 1997

It is important not to get confused when Chinese Medicine uses western medical terms.. The translation to English from the classical Asian texts uses familiar appropriated these terms even though our form of medicine defines the organ systems very differently.
