7 Types Of Pain You Should Never Ignore

• Menstrual cramps that don’t improve with medication

Could be: Endometriosis

If medication offers no relief it could be due to the lining of the uterus growing outside of it, this condition is common and can hamper fertility. Women who suffer from severe pain during their periods may have it. Consult your doctor right away as it is a serious issue. If pain persists even after taking medications, you may need to have the tissue surgically removed.

7 Types Of Pain You Should Never Ignore

• Tooth pain that wakes you up

Could be: Teeth grinding

Regular clenching can cause tooth nerves to become inflamed and enamel to rot away. This can also lead to cracked teeth down to the root which leads to extraction. You should call your doctor ASAP to treat this condition, which is often caused by stress. Your doctor may want you to wear a night guard to prevent clenching. If your tooth is already infected you might need a root canal to remove the bacteria.

• Back pain with tingling toes

Could be: Slipped disc

This pain can’t be treated with heating pads and your toes often feel numb or tingling. This can happens when you lift a heavy object, like furniture. If the heating pad does not seem to be working you could have a disc (one of the spongy rings that cushions the bones in your spine) pressing on the spinal nerve. If it stays untreated it may cause permanent damage to the nerve. See your healthcare professional right away.
