    2. @Zoeo: generally correct, except that not all anesthesia puts you to sleep -- you're referring to general anesthesia. Local anesthesia simply numbs the area to which it's applied (either by injection or as a gel). So basically, an analgesic relieves pain by making it go away (generally by acting via a biochemical mechanism that addresses the cause of the pain), while an anesthetic makes you not feel pain by either putting you to sleep or by deactivating local pain receptors / peripheral nerves.
