There are times when we go through a certain kind of discomfort, a discomfort that can only come with an annoying pain in some part of our bodies. Now, more often than not, the pain can be a resultant of something that are did earlier in the day or the previous day, the pain can be a result of strenuous exercise, it can be a result of some injury, but you guys will agree with us that it is easy to distinguish exactly what is causing the pain right?There are, however, some instances, where the sharp or sometimes constant and stabbing pain is not what we think it is and can be linked to something more severe. In cases like these, we would highly recommend that you get yourself checked by a doctor. This article is going to help you in pinpointing pains for which might need professional guidance and treatment. In short, here are ten body pains that you should not ignore as random.
10. Pain In The Temples
The first and the foremost pain on our list of ten body pains that you should not ignore is the pain that stabs you in your temples. It might not necessarily be a stabbing but it sure as hell will annoy the hell out of you. Now headaches are something that most of us often go through but that still does not mean that you should be totally ignorant about them. We are sure that you guys have heard of migraine attacks and other neurological disorders and rest assured we are not trying to phobic on our delicate behinds- it is just that sometimes a throbbing pain in the temple can mean something more serious is going on in that head of yours especially if the pain is in just one temple.
9. Pain In The Lymph Nodes
Next up on our list of ten body pains that you should not ignore, we have the beloved lymph nodes. We request all our readers to please any bodily changes very seriously and we urge not to let it go by without scrutiny. Moving on, pain in the lymph nodes is also deceiving. Even if the chances of swollen lymph nodes in the neck or in the arms turning out to be anything serious like neck, head, breast or lung cancer, it does not mean that you shouldn’t still get a physical exam and if needed, a biopsy just to be sure.
8. Pain In The Calves
Generally speaking, pain in calves is generally linked to walking to much after a long time, running, hiking or other such physical activity that involves the leg muscles and is mostly, nothing serious. But there have been instances where pain in calves is associated with ruptured muscles in the legs due to extreme exercise. For the most part, you should be able to feel if some serious damage has been done but nonetheless, if you feel something sharp, just go visit a doctor!
7. Pain In The Lower Back
Next up on our list of ten body pains that you should not ignore is the famous lower back pain. We would again refer it to one of those pains that you feel when you start walking again after a long time and especially if are slightly over your ideal weight. The thing to remember is that while lower back might ache due to brisk walking for beginners, it should not persist beyond two days and if it does, there is something not right with your disc, something a doctor would be better able to explain.
6. Pain In The Eye Sockets
So this next pain goes two way, sometimes when people feel that their eye sockets are hurting, the rush to the conclusion that they are probably on the verge of having a migraine. On the other hand, some people whose eye sockets hurt would immediately assume that their eye sight is getting worse and therefore would rush to an eye doctor – which is actually a good thing. What we are trying to say is that pain in the eye sockets can actually be a result of some sort of pressure on the brain so don’t self medicate, instead, rush to your nearest medical practitioner.
5. Tooth Pain
People who have sat through one sitting of a root canal would know exactly how important it is to not take your teeth lightly. Anything weird within your mouth should immediately be reported to your doctor!
4. Sharp Chest Pain
Next up on our list of ten body pains that you should not ignore is the severely common chest pain. Needless to say, a chest pain which seems as if you are being passed through a compressor is certainly no good news. The rate of heart attacks and especially those after a strenuous work out, have increased so much over the past year that one should not take it lightly. This is especially true for women under 45 and people in general with a family history of heart issues.
3. Painful Bloating
Painful bloating that is generally accompanied with lower back pain, changed bowel movements and a difference in your eating capacity can certainly mean something more serious than the result of changing weather. Ovarian cancer has been known to be one of the biggest silent killers out of all the cancers of reproductive organs so ladies, be on a look out and don’t slack.
2. Tingling Toes Plus Aching Back
While this may also feel like one of the symptoms of running round and round on the cricket ground looking to lose that extra Christmas weight, then we have another thing coming for you people. A combination of an aching back and tingling toes can very well mean that there is a little bit of nerve tissue involved that can lead to nerve damage, which is serious business if you wish to continue that sprint!
1. Constant Stiffness In The Chest and Shoulder Blades
Last but not the least on our list of ten body pains that you should not ignore we have that constant stiffness that you feel around your chest and in your shoulder blades. This is generally the result of a cold you might have caught but you should be on the safe side and visit a doctor because the same pain has resulted in much worse conditions for some people.
