But pain can indicate some serious problems and processes happening in the body that threaten our health or even our life. Always pay attention to the signals your body sends to you. Usually we do have some ideas of what is behind the pain we experience. But when it comes to a sudden and severe pain or a pain that lasts for too long – it’s a good reason to see a doctor, and the sooner the better.
