Your nerves feel it and send it too your brain.

In humans and mammals, certain noxious stimuli causes nociceptors (i.e. pain receptors) to fire. This sends a signal up our spinal cord to the cerebral cortex, where this signal is converted into the sensation of pain.

No, it is not. If someone gets hurt, they feel physical pain. If someone gets their feelings hurt, they feel emotional pain.

No your brain does not feel pain because there are no pain receptors in the brain but the skin around the skull do have pain receptors

The brain does not feel pain because there are no pain receptors in the brain. The skin and bones around the brain can feel pain, however, which is why we can still get headaches. Actually i went to a exhibit at the museum of nature & science & asked if the brain felt pain, he then awnsered "Well in some parts of the brain you wont feel any pain but in other parts of the brain you will feel pain".

No. Pain is merely a signal sent to the brain and the brain registers the pain. Bacteria lacks a brain, therefore can feel no pain.
