I believe Martial Arts has some relevant rules - it assumes beyond the initial shock penalty, adrenaline and endorphins basically let you ignore the pain for a time during combat, but later it kicks in. Additionally, I believe there are some issues regarding using a wounded limb (or extremity) to strike. And, of course, the Pyramid article on Conditional Injury, as referenced by Plane, has certain categories of wounds inflict a certain level of pain.
