Uncomfortable feelings in your body are usually an indicator that your health is amiss. You should never ignore your symptoms! If you have symptoms that regularly come and go or those that you have struggled with for a while, it is best to visit the medical center in Tweed. A qualified health practitioner will assess your situation and help identify the root problem.
A while back, having flu-like symptoms like fever and coughing was not a cause for alarm. In the wake of COVID-19, however, you can contact by Telehealth (phone) medical center in Tweed should you develop such symptoms. Patients should ring a medical professional first before coming to a medical centre so as not to spread the disease.
Here are other symptoms to be concerned about:
- Severe headaches
There are several causes of headaches and they range from mild to severe. Lack of sleep and stress, for example, are common causes of headaches. There are, however, other serious issues that may cause a headache such as a problem with blood vessels in your head.
While most people fight severe headaches with their favorite painkiller, it is recommended that you see a doctor if you have a headache or even a single instance of what you would describe as ‘the worst headache of your life’ – this may be a medical emergency.
- Unexplained weight loss
Losing weight is excellent if you have been working out to shed some of those excess kilos. Sometimes you can also lose weight because of poor eating habits.
The issue comes in when you are losing weight all of a sudden and you do not understand why. Unexplained weight loss can be a sign of depression and stress. It can also be caused by infections, cancers and digestive disorders. If your weight is falling off, see a health professional at the medical center in Tweed for further assessment.
- Abdominal pain
Do you know the causes of abdominal pain? Some of the mild and common causes are constipation, indigestion, and food poisoning. Serious causes can include kidney stones, stomach ulcers, and cancer.
Note that the severity of abdominal pain does not indicate the seriousness of the condition. Seek medical help.
- Feeling low and suicidal
Mental health is a serious medical issue that you must address with urgency. Depression can result in suicide and harm to other people if left untreated. Talk to a qualified medic.
Listen to your body. While no one dreams of getting sick, illnesses are sometimes inevitable. When you notice unusual symptoms in your body, seek the advice of a health professional at the medical center in Tweed.
