The Times newspaper interviewed consultants at The London Clinic regarding how to deal with general aches and pains, why these occur, how to treat them, and when we need to take these symptoms more seriously.

Dr. Mani Naghibi, consultant in gastroenterology, explains how with a stomach ache: “If you get one after eating spicy foods, it might be associated with stomach ulcers, or if fatty foods prompt a reaction, it could be gallstones.”

Consultant neurosurgeon Mr Dan Plev talks about backache: “Anytime pain radiates from your back into your legs and other extremities it is a warning sign. 

“Most people find pain subsides with painkillers and time, but the worst thing you can do is lie down and do nothing. 

“Research has shown that muscle loss occurs after just four hours of inactivity due to back pain. It is vital to keep mobile.”
