Subtle Symptoms Of Serious Health Issues
In many cases, you will know when you’re ill. There may be aches and pains coming from within you, as well as sickness, skin problems, and persistent coughing. When these symptoms arise and cease to go away, you will hopefully then see your doctor for advice and support.
However, there are often subtle signs of ill health that we could choose to ignore. In some cases, there may be nothing wrong with us at all. On the other hand, if they persist, we should always seek the advice of a medical professional, as they may be symptomatic of serious health issues.
Consider the following.
#1: Bad breath
Okay, so you may just have eaten a piece of garlic bread, so it’s little wonder your breath isn’t as fresh as it could be. On the other hand, you might suffer from bad breath for another reason (and we aren’t just talking about any other foods you have just eaten). For one, it could be a dental-related issue, so you should see your dentist for advice on maintaining a healthy mouth. Alternatively, it could be symptomatic of more serious health concerns, such as diabetes, or a problem within your liver and kidney. So, after cutting down on your garlic intake, and after taking steps to protect your teeth and gums, see your doctor if the problem of bad breath persists.
Can you hear a ringing in your ear? If there is nobody playing bells in your vicinity, and your smartphone is decidedly silent, then you might well have tinnitus. Around 20% of people suffer from the problem, and while it might not be symptomatic of a health issue at all, it can still lead to health problems because of the stress and irritation it causes. However, it could be a symptom of an underlying condition, such as hearing loss or a problem within your circulatory system, so if you can’t shake those pesky ringing noises, see your audiologist for tinnitus testing. Even if there is nothing seriously wrong with your health, you will at least get guided support on how to manage the problem (as well as a better night’s sleep).
Many of us feel bloated after having a large dinner. It’s that sensation of feeling full in the abdomen, which can usually be alleviated by a short walk and a glass of water. However, if you feel bloated on a regular occasion, it could be symptomatic of a serious health condition, such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or Crohn’s disease. Bloating might also be symptomatic of a gynecological condition, such as an ovarian cyst or endometriosis. Go and see your doctor for help if bloating is a constant problem for you, and check out the advice here on managing the everyday aspects of the feeling.
Today then, go and see your doctor, dentist, and audiologist, if you regularly experience the symptoms we have mentioned here. While there could be nothing wrong with you at all, you should still seek expert opinion on the off chance that you do have a more serious health condition.
