Vedanākkhandha (feeling) is real; we can experience feelings.
Vedanākkhandha comprises all kinds of feeling. Feeling can be classified in different ways. Sometimes feelings are classified as threefold: pleasant feeling, unpleasant feeling, indifferent feeling.
Sometimes they are classified as fivefold. In addition to pleasant feeling,
unpleasant feeling and indifferent feeling there are: pleasant bodily feeling
painful bodily feeling
Bodily feeling is feeling which has bodysense, the rūpa which has the capacity
to receive bodily impressions, as condition; the feeling itself is nāma, but it
has rūpa (bodysense) as condition. When an object contacts the bodysense,
the feeling is either painful or pleasant; there is no indifferent bodily feeling.
When the bodily feeling is painful it is akusala vipāka (the result of an
unwholesome deed), and when the bodily feeling is pleasant it is kusala
vipāka (the result of a wholesome deed).
