The body is wired in such a way that every part works together, and when something goes wrong inside of you, your body notifies you via a number of ways; one of them is through pain.
Although we tend to give little attention to the signs and symptom our bodies give us, it’s not right, and health experts warn that we must take them more seriously, and report them to a doctor. Below are some body pains that we commonly suffer, and what they might mean.
1. PAIN IN THE SHOULDER BLADES
A pain in between the shoulder blades may be a symptom of a heart attack. This is especially true for most people, especially women. Unlike the usual symptoms of heart attack, like chest pressure or numbness, women tend to experience jaw pain, nausea, short breath, and very sharp upper-back pain. If you suffer any of these, it’s best to go see a doctor.
2. STOMACH PAIN
There are many reasons why you could feel stomach pain, could be Menstruation (in case of women), food poisoning or some other illness. However, if the stomach ache is the one that starts dull, and then builds into something more painful in your left lower-abdomen region, it may be appendicitis, and you need to see a doctor.
3. THUNDERCLAP HEADACHE
This is an extreme, sudden headache that is like nothing you’ve had before, and could be as a result of aneurysm, a condition caused by the development of a blood-filled bulge in its wall, and this is dangerous, as it can burst at any moment. If you ever experience this sort of sudden and extremely painful headache, go see a doctor.
4. MID-BACK PAIN
A mid-back pain that’s accompanied by a fever may be a symptom of kidney infection. Another sign that it may be a kidney infection is when you feel a tenderness and soreness when you touch your lower back. Report yourself to a doctor if you suffer those symptoms.
5. MENSTRUAL PAIN
The last type of pain to be xrayed on this post is menstrual pain. If you experience severe menstrual cramps that get worse and fail to be stopped by medication after a long period of time, they may be caused by a condition called Endometriosis. Endometriosis is when tissue that lines and grows inside the uterus grows outside of it instead. So if your periods are excruciatingly painful, there is a high probability that it could be due to Endometriosis.
So those are some of the body pains that you need to take seriously. Report to a doctor immediately if you or anyone close to you ever suffers them, to forestall more danger.
