Definition of a Grief Twinge or Pang

“Definition of a Grief Twinge or Pang”



A lower level feeling of intense sadness or grief.

The twinge or pang results from experiencing a reminder of a loss such as a site, a smell, a place, a song, a letter, a photograph, an anniversary, birthday or other numerous, unexpected reminders.

It is the catch in the throat, the uneasy feeling in the stomach, a sudden ache in the heart after encountering something that reminds a person of something or someone that has been lost.

This type of response often catches the survivor off guard, occurring during unexpectedly as one goes about a normal day.

The Grief twinge or pang tends to be a more manageable, lower level response and not as overwhelming than the full blown grief or than a STUG response, a Sudden Temporary Upsurges of Grief.
