Written By PHIL MUTZ

I am well aware that there are some aches and pains that you should never ignore, and I am constantly on the lookout for those. But I had no idea that sometimes the pain in certain parts of my body are being caused by something totally unrelated.

WebMD writes, “Referred pain occurs when a problem in one place in the body causes pain in another place.” I had never considered that maybe my aches and pains could be caused by something more serious going on elsewhere — I’m so glad I know this now!

While this should never take the place of medical advice, this exclusive look at referred pain in the body is extremely revealing and important. There are definitely symptoms you never want to ignore. I will definitely be paying attention to exactly where pains are occurring now before dismissing them as “normal.”

Scroll through below to see which of these nine referred pains might be a red flag for you.
