FORTES, Isabel. Pain as a sign of the body's presence. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp. 287-301. ISSN 0101-4838.

The article develops the hypothesis that, in the Freudian theory, pain can be conceived as a sign that adverts the ego to the presence of the body. To establish this relationship, three theoretical approaches are proposed in which those two notions intertwine: the formation of the ego in the second topic; the hypochondriacal clinical condition; and the way the organ can be understood in psychoanalysis. Thus, this association is important for the formation of the ego as proposed in the second topic because, in this context, the pain is present in theoretical considerations about the ego in its relation to the body. The second indication comes from hypochondria, due to the understanding it can bring to the proposed hypothesis. Thirdly, the article shows that the connection between pain and body is inherent to the specificity of the organ to psychoanalysis.
