Health Symptoms We Should Not Ignore
We can all struggle now and again with our health. It doesn’t matter how well you take care of yourself in terms of diet, exercise and your general lifestyle, any one of us can be hit with health issues at some point in our lives. The main issue is thateople can tend to ignore symptoms when ours body is trying to tell us something is wrong. Choosing to put up with things instead of seeking medical advice or perhaps not wanting to make a fuss because you assume it is nothing more than just a common thing. So I thought it would bea good idea to highlight some symptoms all of us can struggle with at some stage, and hopefully prompt you to not ignore them if they manifest with you.
Tiredness and low energy
Feeling tired and having low energy can spark from so many different things that you may feel a little silly going to the doctor for it. We can all feels down and out due to stress at work or at home, our lifestyle and what we eat or drink. However, if there doesn’t seem to be any real reason for it, and you also notice other things like your mood has changed and your emotions are affected then the tiredness and low energy could be a symptom of your mental health like anxiety and depression. This is not to be ignored and there are plenty of options to resolve issues such as talking therapies if you only seek the help and guidance you need.
Lumps where there shouldn’t be any
Have you spotted a lump that shouldn’t be there. Perhaps you are getting more concerned about something that you want to have checked out. Lumps can be something of nothing but they could also be symptoms of more extreme health issues like cancer. A doctor could then refer you to have it checked out by a PDX Model which could then be looked at as a treatment methods if things are not what they should be. Thankfully, I think many of us are more intune with our bodies and are aware when something isn't right like a lump to go and have it checked.
Changes to urination or bowel movements
Have you noticed a change with things like urination and bowel movements? As this is one of those taboo subjects no one likes talking about you are less likely to visit the doctor if something is wrong. You should always spot the signs for things like this and speak with your local GP if you are concerned. Extreme cases again could highlight things like cancer, but you could also have a urine infection or other issues that can be easily fixed with a course of antibiotics.
Finally, have you noticed that you are more thirsty than usual? It may sound really trivial, but actually feeling thirsty could be a sign of diabetes. AMongst other symptoms of course. However, if you don't drink enough or keep yourself hydrated then this could also be a warning sign to change your lifestyle.
I hope that this has made you more aware of what to look out for in terms of your health.
