7 Pains You Shouldn't Ignore

Pay Attention to Your Body’s Signals

The everyday aches and pains you're used to could indicate a health emergency.

Usually a headache is just a headache, and heartburn is nothing more than a sign that you just finished off a pound of hot-wings.

Except when they're not.

Pain is your body's way of telling you that something isn't quite right.

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.

According to our experts, all of the following pain conditions should be considered red flags.

Severe Head Pain

Chances are it's a migraine.

But if it isn't accompanied by other migraine symptoms (such as a visual aura), sudden, severe head pain can signal a brain aneurysm.

A burst aneurysm can cause brain damage within minutes, so you need to call 911 immediately.

A Throbbing Tooth

It's likely that the tooth's nerve has become damaged, probably because the surrounding pearly white enamel is cracked or rotting away.

Unless you get it looked at quickly, bacteria in your mouth can invade the nerve.

And you definitely don't want that breeding colony to spread throughout your body.

If your tooth is already infected, you'll require a root canal, in which the tooth's bacteria-laden pulp is removed and replaced with plastic caulking material.

Sharp Pain in your Side

You may just need an over-the-counter antacid.

But if you feel as if you're being skewered in your right side, and you're also nauseated and running a fever, you could have appendicitis.

For women, another possibility is an ovarian cyst.

Typically these fluid-filled sacs are harmless and disappear on their own.

But if one twists or ruptures, it can cause terrible pain.

In both cases, you're looking at emergency surgery.

If you don't remove an inflamed appendix, it can burst.

A twisted cyst also needs to be removed right away, as it can block blood flow to the ovary within hours.

Abdominal Discomfort with Gas or Bloating

For the past month, you've felt gassy and bloated more days than not, and it takes fewer slices of pizza to fill you up than it once did.

If the symptoms are new, the worst-case scenario is ovarian cancer.

In 2007, the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation released the first national consensus on early symptoms of this form of cancer: bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, and difficulty eating.

If you start experiencing them almost daily for more than two or three weeks, consider it a red flag.

Schedule an appointment with your ob-gyn to discuss your symptoms.

Back Pain with Tingling Toes

If you've just helped your bff move into her new fourth-floor apartment, anti-inflammatories should banish the pain.

But if they don't work, hobble in to an orthopedist.

One of your discs (the spongy rings that cushion the bones in your spine) could be pressing on the spinal nerve.

Without proper attention, you risk permanent nerve damage.

Leg Pain with Swelling

Your calf is extremely tender in one location, noticeably swollen, and red or warm to the touch.

You might have deep-vein thrombosis (DVT), commonly known as a blood clot.

Resist the urge to massage the area or to try walking off the pain.

If the clot breaks free, it can travel through your veins up to your lungs and cut off your oxygen supply.

Instead, see your doctor right away.

He or she will do a CT scan or ultrasound to check for a DVT.

If that's what you have, you'll need to take blood thinners, sometimes for up to a year, to dissolve it.

Unfortunately, that's all the time we have today.

We wish you and your family the very best in health and happiness!
