A dream of being in pain most frequently arises from a physical source and has no prophetic significance, but if you are sure this was not the case, then the meaning depends on the location as follows: General allover pain predicts success; in a limb, it signifies embarrassment due to impulsive actions; in the heart, it portends marital or romantic problems; in the teeth, a period of minor difficulties; in the head, an unpleasant surprise; in the throat, a warning against gossip; and in the chest, financial gain.
