Life with all its exertions, hectic schedules and stress often causes ailments like aches and pains, fatigue, weakness, palpitations, anxiety etc. However some symptoms need medical attention and should not be ignored.
Consult a doctor if you feel any of the below symptoms:
1. Weakness in the arms and legs
If you feel weak or numb in your arm, leg or face and it is one-sided, it could be a sign of stroke. It is to be noted that stroke when identified early, is reversible and treatable without any complications.
Healthy arms and legs are very important to carry out our daily activities. Consult best orthopaedic doctors in India if you are facing any kind of arms and legs problem.
2. Chest Pain
Chest pain is one of the most common reasons to rush to an emergency room with the fear of suffering from a heart attack. While chest pain is a strong symptom of a heart attack, it could also be caused by many other less serious conditions.
If your chest feels tight or heavy, and it persists more than a few minutes or relapses, get help immediately from the best cardiologists in India.
3. Tenderness and Pain in the Back of Your Lower Leg
This can be an indication of a blood clot in your leg called deep vein thrombosis or DVT. It can occur after you have been sitting for a long duration, like on a long plane journey or if you are unwell and have been bedridden for a long time. In case of a blood clot, you may notice swelling, redness of the leg and pain while walking or standing. It is imperative to identify and treat a blood clot before it can lead to complications.
4. Blood in Your Urine
There can be several reasons for you to see blood when you pass urine. This condition is medically termed as haematuria. Possibilities could include infections, kidney disease, cancer, and some blood disorders. Blood in the urine can be the indication of a serious health problem, even if it occurs once.
You should consult best urologists as soon as possible, as overlooking haematuria can lead to the exacerbation of very serious conditions like cancer and kidney disease.
Wheezing is a breathing problem caused by the narrowing of the airways or inflammation. Wheezing could be the underlying reason for a serious breathing disease and should not be ignored. Asthma, severe allergy or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is considered to be the most common causes of wheezing. That said, certain risk factors such as smoking, pollen and allergens should not be overlooked as it increases your chances of developing a wheeze.
Seek immediate medical help to control or avoid the relapse of wheezing as it can prove to be fatal. Consult respiratory medicine specialists in India to treat breathing problems.
6. Suicidal Thoughts
