Every disease is associated with a symptom. A symptom is a characteristic change in function, sensation or appearance of a person, that indicates a disease or a disorder.
There are some symptoms that can be associated with a lot of diseases, such as fatigue, weight loss and fever. There are also diseases that have little or no symptoms, these are called ‘silent klller diseases’ like for example hypertension.
But that’s not you are going to be learning today, instead you’ll be finding out the worst ever disease symptoms you shouldn’t joke with.
Pay careful attention as I reveal each of them, because they all require strict medical attention.
1. Pain in the leg along with redness and swelling.
When you have a sudden pain in the leg that is followed by redness, soreness and swelling, you could have Deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Deep vein thrombosis is a medical condition that occurs, when a blood clot is formed in the deep veins in your body. It usually happens in the legs.
This condition will in situations like, if you don’t move for a long time, after surgery or when you are confined to a particular place for a long time. This condition is very serious because DVT can cause the blood clots in your veins to break free and block blood flow to your lungs.
I recommend that you seek prompt medical attention, once you have this symptom.
2. Chest pain that spreads around the body.
Having a chest pain could be a sign of many minor problems. However, if you have a chest pain that feels like it is spreading toward your neck, shoulder or jaw, you might be dealing with something much more worse.
This type of symptom is closely associated with heart attacks. Heart attacks are usually very sudden and fatal. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop this symptom.
3. Sudden severe headache
There is the normal headache that most times starts gradually and with considerable amount of pain. But there are also some headaches that starts suddenly and the pain is so unbearable.
If you have a sudden and an unbearable headache, it could mean that you have ruptured a blood vessel in your brain. It can also be brain hemorrhage. Whichever ways, it is extremely life threatening and you should never ignore this symptom.
4. Abdominal swelling along with pain
Any symptom that is presented with abdominal swelling and pain should be treated with utmost importance. Abdominal swelling and pain means that an internal organ has been damaged. It is also a warning sign for internal bleeding due to blunt trauma on the liver and spleen.
5. Having severe suicidal thoughts
Suicidal thoughts is a very common symptom of depression. A person who has started developing suicidal thoughts is very likely to end up committing suicide. No matter what you are going through, there is always hope as long as you are alive.
If you have any trace of suicidal thoughts on your mind, eliminate them immediately and seek help from a psychologist.
