Common Pains That You Should Definitely Not Ignore

There are statistics that say that around 10% of adults suffer from chronic pain. While some of these symptoms are just a byproduct of getting older, there are also some pains that can be indicators of something much more serious. If you have any new pains, or ones that are lasting longer than usual, then it is important to not ignore them and to get them checked out, in order to maintain your health. If you are experiencing any of the following, then seeking medical advice is important. 


Lower back pain

Back pain can be fairly common, especially if you are someone who sits and works at a desk for pretty long hours. If you have any sudden or severely painful back pain, as well as things like bowel changes, then it could be a sign of something more sinister. You could also have something like a ruptured disc in your back when you get lower back pain. These things can lead to needing surgery if they are not dealt with promptly. So if you are experiencing serious lower back pain, then making an appointment to visit the emergency rooms is a good idea so that things can be checked out.

Tooth pain

We can all experience pain with our teeth from time to time, especially if you have a cavity that needs to be fixed or are someone with sensitive teeth. As a result, it can help to be seen as soon as possible by your dentist, in order to get your teeth sorted out. If you need to have a tooth removed as a result of the pain, then you might think about dental implants instead. This can sound like a scary procedure, as it does mean your original teeth will change shape, in order for the implants to fit. However, if you read an article like this one, 4 ways to improve your life with dental implants, then you will be able to see that there are some benefits to getting dental implants. So seek advice if you are having pain with your teeth and gums, or want to improve the look of your teeth.

Calf aches and pains

If you start to get some calf pain, especially quite suddenly and not as a result of something you know like an injury, then it can be a sign of something else more serious. A condition called deep vein thrombosis results in calf pain, and that is essentially clots in the veins in your legs. If you have been on a plane recently, or are quite sedentary in your lifestyle, or sit at a desk for long hours and experience calf pain, then it is worth checking out. Alongside this, if your skin color discolors in the area, or it feels hot, it can be another indicator that it needs to be checked out. 

The bottom line is that in order to maintain your health, you need to take charge of your health. Don’t just dismiss things, especially when it comes to pain. Seek advice and it can be dealt with before it becomes anything else.
