It often happens that we can only guess what’s wrong with our body when something starts to ache.
We at Bright Side decided to find out what kind of ache or pain is associated with each organ. Please note, however, that this information is of an introductory kind and shouldn’t be taken as a strict guide.
If something is wrong with the heart, a person feels compressing pain in the chest that can spread to the left arm, shoulder blade, and part of the neck. Unlike other kinds of pain, heart pain isn’t associated with movement or breath.
Kidney pain can sometimes be confused with simple backache. The difference is that kidney pain is deeper under the ribs, while muscle pain is usually lower.
Kidney pain may also travel to the legs.
