Generally, it is normal for one to experience pain on different parts of the body. It could be stress induced or from a minor accident. However, there are certain symptoms that should be checked out by a doctor.
- CHEST PAIN: When it involves the chest region, it is important to have it checked out as soon as possible. Chest pain accompanied by sweating, pressure on the chest, nausea, fatigue or shortness of breath should be checked or evaluated by a doctor or medical practitioner immediately. Chest pain could be a sign of a heart disease or heart attack, especially if it occurs after a strenuous activity. It may also mean that there is a blood clot moving into the lungs. If this symptom lasts more than a few minutes, see a doctor immediately.
- TENDERNESS AND PAIN IN THE BACK OF THE LOWER LEG: This symptom could be as a result of a blood clot in the leg. This is called “deep vein thrombosis” or This could occur after sitting for too long or being bedridden for too long. If this is a blood clot, the pain might be felt mostly when a person stands or walks. Swelling might also be noticed.
It’s normal to feel tenderness after exercise, but if you notice redness and feel heat where it’s swollen, see a doctor.
- BLOOD IN YOUR URINE: If you notice blood in your urine and also feel a lot of pain in your side or in your back, you may have kidney stones. A kidney stone is a small crystal made of minerals and salts that forms in your kidney and moves through the tubes that carries urine. Your doctor may take X-rays or do an ultrasound to see the stones. An X-ray uses radiation in low doses to make images of structures inside your body. An ultrasound makes images with sound waves. Many kidney stones eventually pass through your body when you pee. Sometimes, doctors may need to remove the kidney stones.
If you see blood in your urine and you also have an increase in feeling that you urgently need to pee, make frequent trips to the bathroom, or feel burning when you urinate, you may have severe bladder or kidney infection. If you see blood but you don’t feel pains, it might also be a sign of kidney or bladder cancer.
