Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

What are the common pains that should not be ignored because they may signal bigger health issues?

Answered by Dr. Sugandh Garg


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Headache- Rule out eye and retina and CT (computerized tomography) head to rule out any internal illness.

Body ache bony pains- Rule out calcium and D3 deficit.

Abdominal pain acute or chronic must be investigated, examined and treated and not taken OTC pain killers as they can temporarily suppress the pain. I had a case where she complained of chronic off and on pain around umbilicus and kept taking pain killers from pharmacy locally and when she came to me and I got her USD, it showed ruptured appendix.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
