Most of have taken an over-the-counter pain killer such as aspirin, advil, tylenol (or paracetamol for Europeans). 

Sabine Hossenfelder on her BackReaction blog discusses how they work, differences between them, what pain is, where it comes from and where research into pain is pointing researchers into its treatment. You may wonder, too, "why (she is ) suddenly talking about pharmacology." After all her expertise is in theoretical physics.

The result of her research and thoughts about these topics is another fascinating video, one longer than usual (20m 57s). You know the drill: video + transcript on her blog; video only on her YouTube channel. And as is usual I link to her website.
