Have you ever missed a day out with friends because, suddenly, ang sakit ng puson mo? You may have once cancelled a dinner date because a five-course meal and a toothache is not a good combination. Or were you once not yourself during a presentation because of an intense headache?
Yes, pain is a part of life, but it can also ruin good times. Thus, it's important that we understand its causes and the things we can do to help make our days become pain-free!
For a couple of days a month, women experience intense menstrual cramps caused by contractions in the uterus. The aching pain around the lower abdomen may also come with backaches, nausea, and head pain. It's a bit too much, but with a little effort, you'll have no more pain in no time!
Grab that heat pad, girl!
Try placing a warm heat pad on your abdomen—easy and calming!
Get your body moving
When you exercise, your body releases endorphins—the happy hormones. Fight off the cramps by jogging, walking, or doing yoga.
Say no to caffeine and salty food
It could make your menstrual cramps worse. Go for fresh fruits and iron-rich foods. Your body will thank you!
We're all foodies by heart. So, when a major toothache strikes, it's best to seek pain relief. This may be caused by irritation, inflammation, or sometimes, gum problems. Kaya kapag may sakit ng ngipin ka na, act fast!
Make a saltwater rinse
Saltwater is a natural disinfectant. Rinsing your mouth with it cleans up your teeth and helps reduce oral inflammation.
Avoid cold, hard foods
Don't irritate your teeth with cold, hard-to-chew foods. Save it for when the ache is away!
Grab an extra pillow
Prop your head higher than your body to keep the blood from rushing to your head—this will help prevent inflammation from worsening.
If a throbbing pain around your head is bugging you, sakit ng ulo na 'yan. Headaches could be caused by many factors—from stress to lack of sleep. Don't let the pain get to your head!
Get your ice pack ready
Place the ice pack on your forehead or your neck—just find the right spot!
Your body functions better when you're hydrated. Drink lots of fluids and water-rich foods—you'll feel better!
Dim the lights
Lights could trigger sharp pangs of head pain, especially if you have a Migraine. Makirot-kirot 'yan! Try dimming the lights in your room, and relax.
Say good bye to grabeng pain! For relief from commonly-experienced intense pain—whether it be dysmenorrhea, headache, or toothache—try a pain reliever like Mefenamic Acid (Dolfenal) para laging good vibes!
Again, as they say, no pain, no gain.
But it doesn't hurt to be ready.
Mefenamic Acid is the generic name of Dolfenal. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
