For me it's usually not pain, just pressure. But I have had mild pain in my dreams before. This one time, I touched a cat in my dream and it felt like the softest thing ever imagined haha

I can feel others touching me who are not really there. I am conscious in some of my dreams. I can feel them and it feels extreme.

I once had a dream I was shot in my side and it hurt a lot, and when I woke up, it still hurt in the same spot. O_O;

Whenever I laugh in my sleep it feels like my lungs just stop doing their job so it hurts really bad but yet I can't stop laughing

Pain no, touch yes. Though for those who can feel touch and pain try feeling your upper legs as mine go numb when I am asleep and thus the feeling is numb when asleep.

When I was little... I remember having dreams where I was being thrown in the air or falling out of a plane, or something. It felt like... kinda like going down a really big roller coaster. It seemed so realistic. Before I hit the ground, I would wake up before any pain was felt.
It scared the heck out of me though. o,o

What does that feel like..? I mean, does it seem real? Can you tell it's a dream?

I think everyone has those falling dreams there's a science explanation to it too where the body falls asleep too fast and your brain mistakes it for dying so the falling feeling is generated from the brain shocking the body back awake 

And I usually lucid dream or at least have control over my dreams but even so I get stabbed, shot, pinned to operating tables and watch as my organs get ripped out of my stomach, and all other sorts of violent episodes to which they generate very realistic pains and in some cases I will wake to have that pain for a couple of hours (one time I had like ghost pains of a "scar" I got in my nightmare for 2 days)
