Most people do not take their health seriously because they tend to dismiss possible health issues. The level of ignorance is so high that individuals seek medical help from friends. Some signs and symptoms can be easily dismissed as general body weakness. Some people risk their lives by regarding the doctor as the option of the last result when their self-medications prove to be ineffective.
People who dismiss symptoms can be suffering from some physical health issues for a long time without being treated due to their ‘not so serious’ symptoms. People tend to ignore back pains, joint pains, neck, and joint stiffness and headaches among other symptoms. People tend to turn to over the counter the drugs when they encounter such symptoms without thinking twice.
The first most likely condition to go unnoticed is arthritis. Arthritis is in most cases diagnosed when it is too late and has caused a lot of damage to the body. People who have arthritis are likely to experience pain and stiffness on the affected limb and joints. These symptoms can be mistaken to general fatigue or body weakness. In case you suffer from reoccurring joint pains you should visit a doctor for more information. You should not be alerted when you are diagnosed with arthritis because it is easily manageable through healthy lifestyle and diets.
Secondly, you should be on the lookout for a weak pelvic floor. You will be forgiven if you have never heard of such a term because it’s not commonly discussed. The condition should not be considered to be one of those rare diseases because it is very common among people. Failure to recognize the condition as a disease is what makes people suffer in silence until they cannot live with it anymore. You should suspect that you have the condition when you have regular trouble to holding urine when you are on your way to a washroom hence casing leakage. Most people do not recognize the disease even after seeing signs because they might think it was the bladder that was too full to hold the urine. In case you have experienced such symptoms for several times, don’t ignore them. More information about this condition can easily e accessed in blogs and articles.
Finally, you should also be on the lookout of flat feet. You can determine whether you have flat feet by merely checking your feet. There should be an arch at the bottom of your feet when which should be noticeable when you step of a flat surface. If left uncorrected, it can cause problems in walking, standing uprightly and even hip pain. The condition is rectifiable hence you should seek more information on how it can be treated.
