When to see a Doctor...

Many of us are afraid to visit a doctor when we feel something. Often, we take those pains for granted thinking that " this is nothing, really". Or sometimes, we're just afraid to find out that something could really be wrong. I must admit that I think like that, I really don't give much attention to simple head and tummy aches. And always, REST does the trick.

More serious pains might mean there is a more serious problem. I stumbled upon an article on when you really should see a doctor. Any of these could be a sign of a more serious problem that needs medical attention. Visit your doctor if you have...

  • Sharp or stabbing pain
  • Pain that radiates along the arm, leg, or elsewhere in the body
  • Pain that's accompanied by fever, weight loss, weakness or a change in skin color
  • Pain that gets worse, keeps you awake at night, lasts longer than a week or two, or pain that makes you uneasy.
Seeing a doctor immediately will not only help you ease the pain but will let you know what the real problem is and how it can be cured.
