HOW IGNORING PAIN IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE BODY CAN COST YOU YOUR LIFE


The everyday aches and pains you're used to could be a red flag. Usually a headache is just a headache, and heartburn is nothing more than a sign that you ate too much fast-food. Except when they're not.

Pain is the mechanism of the body to indicate that there is a problem that needs to be solved. More often than not, you have some idea of what's behind it. But when it comes on suddenly, lingers longer than usual, or just seems different, it calls for medical attention—and the sooner, the better. 

In this post we will be giving you 5 pains you shouldn’t ignore based on the parts of the body they occur.

1. Heart
Pain in the chest most especially in the right side may indicate certain cardiovascular problems. This may also lead to pain on the left body side, as they are linked to other body parts which send impulses, such as the spinal cord.

According to the University of Michigan Medical School, “Cardiac pain is often referred to areas of the body surface which send impulses to the same levels of the spinal cord that receive cardiac sensation. This is true especially on the left side.”

2. Lungs and diaphragm.
Pain in the neck and upper shoulders may indicate lung issues. This can also be laced with breathing problems to do with the phrenic nerve that runs from the spine, through the lungs, to the diaphragm.

3. Kidneys
The pain felt in the pelvis, thighs, lower back, and lower abdomen usually indicate issues with the kidneys. Kidney problems are quite difficult to diagnose, because you can feel pain in many places, but if you feel continuous pain in any of these places please try and see a doctor.

4. STOMACH.
Abdominal pain and back pain in the area where the stomach is, almost always is a sign that something is wrong with your stomach or your pancreas. Most people with chronic pancreatitis have a severe back pain.

5. Ovary 
In the case of inflammation of the ovaries, a person may feel pain in the frontal part of the abdominal area, of the both sides. A stabbing and intense pain in the area of the ovaries may indicate cysts.

6. Bladder
Pain in the lower pelvis, in the front or the back usually refers to problem in the bladder. 

7. Colon and Appendix.
Pain in specific areas of the abdomen connotes appendicitis problems. Problems with appendicitis commonly cause severe pain in the whole right part of the lower abdomen. Pain in the central part of the lower abdomen may be a signal that you have problems with the colon or the rectum.


8. Liver and Gall Bladder.
Pain in the neck and the upper shoulders may also be the first sign that something is wrong with these two organs, particularly if the pain occurs more frequently on the right, where the liver and the gall bladder are located. Problems with the gall bladder can manifest pain in the shoulders, as well as in the diaphragm.

If you feel pain in any parts of the body mentioned above, please do well to see a doctor as soon as possible before it costs you your life.
