Body pain that is sudden and severe can happen almost anywhere in the body. Severe body pain can result from a wide range of health problems and medical conditions. Serious body pain may even be life threatening and require emergency care.
If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of severe body pain in Arizona, visit a Dignity Health emergency room. For medical emergencies, call 9-1-1.

Body pain can signal an injury or some type of external or internal trauma. Sudden, severe pain is a symptom of many conditions that affect the body. Some body pain has clear, obvious causes, while other pain is more difficult to diagnose.
Experienced doctors at Dignity Health can diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions that cause severe pain.
You should call your doctor right away if you have pain that seems abnormal or does not go away within a few hours.
