Pain management is one area which is taken rather lightly by most patients. Most of the recurring pains are ignored by patients who prefer topical application of commonly available OTC balms and sprays. This is fine for an occasional episode of pain, but any pain in any part of the human body that is recurring or is showcasing at periodic intervals should not be ignored. The body's communication is through pain. So, whenever you experience pain – regardless of the intensity, note the time, intensity and type of pain (pulling, pushing, pulsating, twitching, etc.) It is common to feel some level of muscular pain after some heavy physical work or exercise but if the pain does not seem to subside with regular balms or sprays or gentle massage, then there should be an underlying cause. Also remember that most dangerous tumours do not pain much in the initial stages but rather manifest themselves as a dull ache in various parts of the body – so recurring pain regardless of intensity is definitely a cause for concern. Anyone above the age of 10 is susceptible to different types of pain – though 80% of the cases are related to muscles or bones, the remaining 20% can manifest in any part of the body. So being aware of the bodily signs is very important.
