Inside our body, all the cavities such as the mouth, throat, stomach, intes tines, ears, chest, and sinuses are lined with cells called epithelial cells.

These cells contain nerve endings that send impulses which the brain identifies as feelings of heat, cold, or pain.

Outside the body, the skin is the organ of feeling.

It has more than 16,000 nerve endings, which are also called receptors that detect heat or cold, and around 4 million nerve end ings that transmit feelings of pain!

Your nervous system depends on these receptors that are embedded in your skin, to sense the outside world.

Our hands, feet, and lips all have extra receptors making those areas even more sensitive, and there are actually different types of receptor cells for each type of sensation.

Thank you



  1. Good day

    The vagus nerve reports, right into the brain stem, of the communication that exists between the organs.

    Every cell makes itself the state of the body, its “thoughts”.

    The bacteria, the small animals on the skin and inside, make it possible for us to have our own lives.

    The skin continues into our brain, it is the largest organ that connects the inside with the outside.

    Best regards

      1. Thank you very much, my answer cannot seem better.

        I would like to see my train of thought as an extension of your very good representation of our body and its connections.

        Best regards

  2. For a while, I was having chest pain and thought it was a heart attack, only to find out, after three visits to the ER, it wasn’t. My neurologist diagnosed it as radiculitis and prescribed gabapentin which has helped tremendously with the chest pain. I also diagnosed myself with myalgic encephalomyelitis which, I have had now for 30+ years after a bout of pneumonia which, according to my doctors at Mayo and elsewhere, my body has not totally healed from and means my nerves can fire up anytime and anywhere with all kinds of symptoms. I have a strong faith in God and Jesus which has taken me through this. I even wrote a book about my journey called, “When Thorns Remain.”Any thoughts? Doug
