3 Things we probably shouldn't Ignore!

{ Collaborative} We all think we know our body. We can all be extremely stubborn from time to time too and ignore some of the random things that happen to our body.

What if these things that we ignore are, in fact, warning signs from our body? Today we are going to look at some of those little warning signs and what to do if they occur.

Chest Pain

Now, most people now choose to ignore chest pain or put it down as wind. In fact, the majority of the time, chest pain of any sort can be your body trying to communicate something to you.

The good news is that 80% of chest pain is not related to the heart. It doesn’t mean, however, that is isn’t something you should ignore. The pain that you are feeling could be pulmonary, referred stomach issues or even pain that is caused by stress and anxiety.

Stress is the number one cause of chest pain, and this is not the only worrying symptom that it causes. If you do feel any form of chest pain, no matter how slight, you should contact your local medical professional.

Of course, if you do feel a tightening or a crushing pain in the chest. You should definitely go to your local ER and get this checked out.

Tooth Pain

Tooth pain is one of those things the majority of us will suffer. It is often known as one of the worst pains we can experience. Sometimes the pain can only last a short term, others it can last a few days. The majority of the time, we ignore the pain and wait for it to go away.

Ok, so nobody likes going to the dentist but what if we look at the scary truth. That pain you are having is possibly the start of an infection, there is, in fact, a 10% chance that infection could spread to your brain and have fatal consequences. Still, feel like ignoring that pain?

The best advice you can be given, if it’s the middle of the night and you are experiencing severe pain, go to an emergency dentist it may be one of the best things you ever do. In an extreme case, it may even save your life.


Stomach Pain

Ever since we were little, we have been trained to ignore stomach pain and just put it down to bellyache. 

When we look at what belly ache is, it is actually quite scary. That pain that you are feeling could be caused by one of many things. These could range from a blockage to a viral infection. 

Another cause of stomach pain that goes ignored is unbelievably food poisoning. There are, in fact, more cases of food poisoning that go unreported every year, than there are reported. Most people just don’t realise they have it. So visiting your doctor should you have abdominal pain is an absolute must, if only for peace of mind.
