This question is actually two questions.
What is nothing?
The question and comments answer this. Nothing is not an existent; it is the absence of existents. It is emptiness, as the question itself seems to imply.
Why is emptiness painful?
Valuing is the essence of living. If emptiness means absence of values, it effectively means lifelessness, the opposite of living. Pain is a signal of harm to one's life. (Even when done intentionally, as a means of toughening oneself for greater challenges in the future, pain still must be heeded appropriately to avert serious damage to one's life.)
(Sorry, I didn't understand the point about the cricket. If it's chirping, it's not nothing. The sound is real, as is the entity producing it.)
