Warning: 7 Body Pains You Shouldn't Ignore

We don't usually go immediately to a doctor when we experience sudden pain, thinking that it wouldn't last and a capsule of ibuprofen will do.

Pain is the body's way of telling us that something isn't quite right.

More often,you have some idea of what's behind it.

But when it comes on suddenly, lingers longer than usual, or just seems different, medical attention is needed and the sooner, the better. 

You can't let every ache, soreness or twinge worry you to the point you have your health care provider or local hospital on speed dial.

According to the experts, you can easily recognize when some pains, even if they seem small, need immediate attention.

The following pain conditions should be considered red flags:

Pain Number 1:

Burning Pain or Numbness in the Legs or Feet

Pain Number 2: 

A Sharp Ache Between Your Shoulder Blades

A heart attack is more like a sharp sudden onset. Call some help. Never let your family nor neighbors drive you to the hospital. 

Pain Number 3:

An Excruciating Headache

Most of us have experienced mild or moderate headaches, usually an over the counter pain medication makes the pain go away. But if you have the worst headache of your life and it comes on suddenly, it could be Aneurysm, a balloon-like area in an artery so better call for an ambulance.

Again, do not drive the hospital yourself.

Pain Number 4: 

Mid-back Pain With Fever

Don't assume that your temperature, nausea and back pain are just a stomach bug. It could be a sign that something is wrong with your kidney.

This condition develops when bacteria that infiltrate the urinary tract spread to the kidneys, making the infection much more severe. You might start with urinary tract infection symptoms, like pain during urination, but some people don't notice anything until later. You'll likely need antibiotics as soon as possible but better consult your doctor first.

Pain Number 5: 

Extreme Abdominal Pain To The Lower Right of Abdomen

When this happens, talk to your doctor immediately for this kind of pain could be the result of Appendicitis. The pain usually starts at the center of your stomach and gradually moves to the right. If the appendix does rupture, that can be a dangerous complication, with bacteria bursting into your bloodstream and infecting your entire body.

You can easily detect if an irritated appendix is developing. Try pressing down on your stomach, if it still does hurt after letting it go quickly, better call for help. Another test is where you use the muscle underlying the gall bladder: Bring your knee to your head and have someone push down with resistance and if that hurts, it clearly a sign and need to be evaluated further. 

Pain Number 6: 

Pain or Swelling in the Calves

An annoying calf cramp happens to everyone once in a while. However, when it is accompanied by swelling or remains as a constant ache, and calf pain, indicates Deep Vein Thrombosis, or DVT.
DVT is more likely if you use birth control pills or recently took a long car or plane ride. If you experience this, don't delay any longer.

Call your doctor for the clot could increase in size or break off, move toward the lungs and stop blood flow. It can go to your heart and give you a heart attack. It can go to your brain and give you a stroke.

Pain Number 7: 

Odd, Vague, Unexplained Pains or Combined Pains

A combination of subtle yet chronic pains or odd pains that can’t be medically accounted for could indicate a problem lying beneath the surface of the skin and bone: depression.

Depression can cause strange pain sensations to arise in the body, and although these pains can’t be explained by other medical phenomena, depression is a common cause of chronic pain.

If you have annoying pains that have no cause or a combination of pains that arise for no apparent reason, you may be suffering from clinical depression. Other symptoms of depression must be present before a diagnosing depression, such as losing interest in activities you used to do, inability to work or think effectively or not wanting to socialize.

Prevention is better than cure. It is still best to be sure what could you possibly have on your body. Be self and health conscious, for you will be the one that will benefit from it.
