Does all physical pain indicate something wrong?

Does all physical pain indicate something wrong? Okay, weird question. We all get pains...maybe a quick shooting pain in the arm, maybe a fleeting headache that comes and goes in a flash, maybe an ache in a finger or toe that throbs a few times, then leaves.

I understand that pain generally means something ain't right. But what about random pains that come and go, don't linger, don't repeat, and (seemingly) aren't caused by any action or stimulus?
Is there such thing as a random, "pointless" pain? Or does every pain I experience mean something bad has happened, however small?
