As an old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” This adage speaks volumes especially when we are talking about health. With early detection, you can prevent whatever disease from spreading and your doctors can have ample time to formulate the right cure.
If you are feeling the following symptoms, be sure to have yourself checked.
A simple toothache can be a symptom of a more serious dental problem like tooth abscess. If not prevented, the infection might spread deeper to your throat and cause more serious problem like trouble in breathing and swallowing. If your toothache is accompanied with fever and chilling, go to the emergency room right away. Visit your trusted Jumeirah dental clinic on the onset of toothache.
If you are feeling persistent muscle aches accompanied by different symptoms like fatigue, bruising and loss of appetite, this can be an initial symptoms of leukaemia. If you are experiencing these symptoms, contact your family doctor and subject yourself to different lab test. Muscle pains can also be a cause other illness and diseases such as of fractured bones, lyme disease and bone cancer. Should you feel persistent muscle ache, consult with an orthopaedic surgeon in Dubai to know what the real cause is.
Our bowel movements can indicate what our body is going through, which is why it is a must to pay close attention to them, especially if you feel some changes (frequent diarrhoea or constipation, color of the stool, blood on the stool, etc.) it would be best to check with your doctor. Constipation can be a sign of colon cancer and colon polyps. Frequent diarrhoea, on the other hand, can be a sign of iron and food poisoning, gastroenteritis, Crohn’s disease, salmonella and rotavirus.
Fever is a normal health occurrence that all of us already experienced. But if have fever of more than three days, better have yourself checked. Persistent fever can be a sign of something more serious like urinary tract infection and tuberculosis. Unexplained fever can be a sign of adrenal disease and hematoma.
Signs of blood is never a good sign, especially if it concerns your health. Haemorrhage can be cause by serious illnesses like leukemia, potassium deficiency, liver disease, lung cancer, etc. If you see any unusual bleeding (blood on stool, cough or bleeding in any parts of your body) consult your doctor.
