8 Random Pains In Your Body. Here’s What They Actually Mean

You might think that you are all strong and flexible right now, but wait and see what is going to happen in the future as you get older. Your body will know how to remind of what you had done in youth – you know what I’m talking about – pain. That is the pain that will come in a matter of a minute, and sometimes it lasts for hours, disappears the next day and returns a few days later. And that randomness is extremely frustrating. And there is a reason for any pain you feel in your body. Sometimes it is the “red flag”.

In order to deal with such pain, you need to know the cause of it in the first place. That is why we did a little research and this is what we have found so far.

1. Pain On the Bottom Of Your Foot

According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common causes for pain on the bottom of your foot are injury, overuse or any conditions that may cause inflammation that involves any of the bones, tendons or ligaments. I recently spoke to Natalie Bogdanski, who is a fitness enthusiast and was training for a 10k race. She told me that she was having foot pain for the past two months but thought nothing of it. But once she went to see the doctor, she was informed that the pain she was feeling was actually a stress fracture on her foot. So no 10k race, and it’s safe to say Natalie has learned her lesson. So for those who are training for races or triathlons, you need to give your feet a break once and a while.

2. Knee Buckling

You know, when your knee buckles at a very young age it is not a big deal. However, if you get older and your knee starts buckling it is not usually a good sign. The most common cause for that is an injury. And according to the “Healthline”, most of those injuries come from high-impact activities like running. The other cause is arthritis.

3. Pain In the Back of the Ear

It can be difficult to identify what is causing your headache. But if you have a persistent pain in the back of your ear, it can be a number of things according to Healthline. One of the reasons could be that you have pinched nerves in your neck. You can get pinched nerves in your neck if you keep it bent for a long period of time. Another reason you might have pain in the back of your ear is dental problems. Healthline explains that if you have an abscessed tooth or, or other dental issues, it can cause pain behind the ear.

4. Sharp Pain In Your Head

WebMD states that if you are experiencing a sharp pain in your head at least a few times a month, it could be occipital neuralgia. This condition occurs when the nerves that are running from the spinal cord to the scalp become inflamed. You will either feel pain on the back of your head or on the base of the skull.

5. Muscle Cramps

Well, there are a couple of reasons for this. The most common is an inadequate blood supply and nerve compression.

6. Sharp Stomach Pain

There are many different causes for stomach pain. If you experience this pain once in a while, Medical News Today states that it could just be an acid reflux. They add that if you experience this pain a couple of times a day, it could be a stomach or peptic ulcer.

7. Leg Pain

This is most commonly caused by the problems with arteries. If that happens, the pain is usually in the lower part of the leg, and it appears when you are walking, climbing stairs or use your legs in any other way. However, you should talk to your doctor if you start feeling this kind of a pain.

8. Sudden Back Pain

The first cause for sudden back pain is an injury. If you are exercising or overexerting your back, you increase the chances of pulling a muscle or straining it, according to WebMD. But if you have constant stress or poor posture, it can eventually lead to back spasms and chronic aching. WebMD adds that there is pressure on the spine, which can result from a herniated disc; it can also cause sudden back pain.
