Dr. Susan Babel, a psychologist that specializes in trauma-induced depression, wrote in Psychology Today,
“Often, physical pain functions to warn a person that there is still emotional work to be done,” she continued. So what could the various pains you experience mean? Let’s go through it.
1. Pain in your head
Pain in your head, like headaches and migraines, can be triggered by the stresses of day to day life.
2. Pain in your neck
You must have kids! Just kidding. Pain in your neck is an indication that you may be having trouble with forgiveness of others, or even yourself.
3. Pain in your shoulders
Pain in your shoulders may indicate that you’re carrying a real emotional burden. Focus in on some proactive problem solving and distributing some of that burden to other people in your life.
4. Pain in your upper back
If you’re feeling pain in your upper back, you’re probably coping with a lack of emotional support. You might be feeling unloved or you could even be holding your love back.
5. Pain in your lower back
Lower back pain might mean you’re worrying too much about money or you’re lacking in emotional support.
6. Pain in your elbows
Pain in your elbows has a lot to do with resisting changes in your life. If your arms are feeling stiff, it may mean that you’re too stiff in your life.
7. Pain in your hands
With your hands, you reach out to others and connect. If you’re feeling hand pain, it may mean that you’re not reaching out enough. Try making new friends. Have lunch with an associate. Make a connection.
8. Pain in your hips
If you’ve been afraid of moving, that may manifest as a pain in the hips. Sore hips could be a sign that you’re too resistant to changes and moves.
9. Pain in the knees
Knee pain can be a lot of different things, but it can be a sign of a big ego. You might think that you’re a little bit too awesome. Humble yourself. Spend some time volunteering.
10. Pain in your feet
When you’re depressed, you might feel some foot pain. Too much negativity can manifest in your feet not feeling so good. Find a new pet or a new hobby. Look for joy.
