B and C make no sense. A is OK. "For" means "to help".
Student or Learner
Can one saya. I work out for my back pain.
b. He says he writes for his own pain.
c. He says he writes for others' pain.
I can't tell what 'for' means here, although I understand the meanings of the sentences. I don't think it means 'because'. It is as if the working-out and the writing are destined towards the pain or something.

Thank you both so much.
I will do so from now on. I did not know that rule. In this case, the answers I had received in the other forums seemed contradictory although one of them did make excellent sense logically speaking.
I know that all native speakers do not speak in the same way and views might differ as regards certain sentences. In some cases, I would like to have a few opinions.
