5 Types of Pain You Should Not Treat At Home

Most often than not, we deal with pain by popping pain killers without giving it much thought. The strong willed ones usually wait for it to subside or go for the tried and tested methods at home.
Beware, not all pains should be treated at home likes:-

Pain accompanied by Fever:-
You shouldn’t take pain killer for pain accompanied by fever, fatigue and red-hot-swollen joints. These could be warning signs of a medical condition that needs you to see a doctor. Ignoring it persistently can lead to health complications. Joint pain is an indicator of rheumatoid arthritis which can be chronic. It can also be because of systemic inflammatory disorder that may result in deformed joints and lead to loss of joint and muscle function.

Pain in the Calves:-

You shouldn’t deal with cramping in calf muscles (without any strenuous physical activity) with a painkiller. The underlying cause is serious when there is discoloration and temperature reduction of skin. Arterial insufficiency or blockage in blood supply to an organ can be the reason for pain in the calves.

Left Arm Pain:-
Heavy lifting can be one of the reasons for pain in arms. Pain in the left arm, when accompanied by feelings of tightness and discomfort in chest, should not be taken lightly. It could be Angina Pectoris, a symptom of reduced blood flow to the heart as in coronary artery disease.

Acute or Chronic Back Pain:-
If your back pain doesn’t go away in a few days, it may need medical intervention. Back pain with numbness, tingling or weakness in the limbs or loss of bladder/ bowel control points towards nerve compression and is a sign of something serious.

Severe Pain that Worsens at Night:-

Deep, severe, boring pain anywhere in the body which worsens at night and is accompanied by anaemia, unexplained fractures, trivial falls, frequent infections and fatigue could be due to a type of bone cancer.
