6 common, inconspicuous
warning signs that may seriously affect your health!

Physician Lu Tairun pointed out that common symptoms that are not obvious but may potentially harbor major diseases, such as weight loss, frequent dizziness, repeated headaches, easy fatigue, abnormal tinnitus, frequent chest tightness, etc.

Weight loss:
Unexplained weight loss is a common symptom of many major illnesses, defined as a 5% drop in 6 months without a specific weight loss program. 

Lesser problems can range from gastrointestinal disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux and stomach ulcers to mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. More serious ones such as diabetes, thyroid disease, autoimmune diseases, chronic infections, etc., also include cancer.

Frequent dizziness:
Dizziness is also one of the common main symptoms in the clinic. Most of them are benign otolithiasis, anemia, postural hypotension, etc. under examination. But serious problems may also be Meniere’s disease, diabetes, hyperglycemia, acoustic neuroma, etc., and strokes can also appear in the form of dizziness.

Repeated headaches:
It is also a common problem between clinics. Most of them are primary headaches such as migraine and tension headaches, and there are no health concerns. 

However, migraine is unilateral, the pain is moderate to severe, and the duration may last for several hours or days. It may also have symptoms such as photophobia, nausea, and vomiting. It is usually more serious than ordinary headaches. It needs to be diagnosed by a doctor.

The side of the pain is a migraine, so it is also recommended to check it as soon as possible. Serious problems such as brain hemangioma, brain tumor, central nervous system infection and other secondary headaches.

Fatigue easily:
“Non-specific burnout” for which the cause cannot be found is common in the consultation room, which may be caused by autonomic nervous disorder or anemia. 

In severe cases, fatigue often occurs in the later stages, such as end-stage heart disease, end-stage kidney disease, end-stage liver cirrhosis, end-stage cancer, severe autoimmune disease, chronic infection, etc.

Abnormal tinnitus:
Tinnitus is often caused by autonomic nervous system disorders, but it may also be caused by auditory nerve problems or allergies. 

Severe cases such as Meniere’s disease, otitis media, perforated eardrum, ear stroke, acoustic neuroma, nasopharyngeal cancer, etc., are mostly unilateral. Therefore, it is specially reminded that in addition to the frequent occurrence of tinnitus, attention should also be paid to unilateral tinnitus.

Frequent chest tightness:
chest tightness is also mostly caused by autonomic nervous system disorders, or general respiratory infections such as influenza, but this is where the important organs of the heart and lungs are located. Asthma, chronic lung obstruction, lung diseases such as lung cancer, or severe gastroesophageal reflux.

Symptoms appear in the body and then observe again? The check?
Physician 3: Seek medical attention as soon as possible without delaying.

Dr. Lu Tairun reminded that if these symptoms occur too often, you should be alert. If it did not appear before but appears now, or if it was fine before but now becomes more serious, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

 Especially if it is accompanied by other symptoms or more than one symptom, such as headache accompanied by tinnitus, or dizziness accompanied by decreased body mass, etc., the more types of symptoms, the more careful you should be. In addition to weight loss, the observation time can be observed for 6 months.

Others should not be observed for too long. Most common disease symptoms usually improve in about two weeks, but if you have obvious doubts, the sooner you go to the doctor, the better. If you are not sure where to go for a check-up, you can go to your home doctor first, and make follow-up referrals if necessary to ensure health and safety.

A 60-year-old male with no history of chronic disease, he didn’t care about chest tightness, and he was
found to have stenosis due to cardiovascular obstruction!

Dr. Lu Tairun also shared a case. A man in his 60s who has the habit of mountaineering often has some chest tightness, but it is only mild, and he does not have a third-level chronic disease. Therefore, he thinks that he is just old and has poor cardiopulmonary function.

. After about a year, I noticed that the chest tightness was more obvious than before. After discussing with my family, I decided to go to the home doctor for an examination. It would be good to see if my heart was at ease.

After the examination, it was found that the blockage of the heart vessels was quite serious, and I was referred to the Cardiology Department. Further cardiac catheterization was found to be “unstable stenosis”, with severe blockages in all three blood vessels.

 Afterwards, the Cardiology Department installed three stents for him and there was no serious problem and continued observation. Dr. Lu Tairun said that the case is fortunately more alert. Although the stent may not need to be installed if it was checked earlier, it should be checked early, and there are no other dangers.

It’s okay without seeing a doctor, but it’s serious after seeing it?
Medical refers to the common myth of seeking medical treatment, thousands of mother soup!

Many people also often have a few myths, such as “I don’t want to see a doctor. It’s okay if I don’t see it, but it’s worse when I see it.” “My friends say that medicine is effective, just take that one.” And “I’ll take care of it through diet, healthy work and rest, and live a good life.” And so on.

Myth 1: It’s okay if the doctor didn’t see it, but it’s more serious after seeing it?
In this regard, Dr. Lu Taiyun said that the problem was more serious when he saw a doctor. This is more like consequentialism, using the results to examine what happened. In fact, it is common because the problem has developed to the point where it can be observed by the client and needs to be checked.

This situation tends to be more serious after the examination, but it can be controlled under treatment. On the other hand, if this problem has been observed, but no medical treatment is sought, then the follow-up may not only become more serious.

Myth 2: Seeing a doctor increases psychological pressure, but the disease is more likely to worsen?
Psychological stress does also affect physical health, but the impact is smaller than that of diseases. Taking cancer as an example, if you do not seek medical attention until the fourth stage, the threat to health is definitely far greater than the psychological impact, not to mention that chronic diseases may bring Acute dangers,

such as diabetes and myocardial infarction, do not avoid seeing a doctor for fear of psychological burden, which may increase unpredictable life risks.

Myth 3: Friends say that drug is effective, just take that drug?
As for the medicines, health food, folklore therapy, etc. recommended by relatives and friends, Dr. Lu Tairun said that if it is legal and normal, it can be tried, but the premise must be determined, and the source is from professionals such as doctors, pharmacists, nutritionists, or major medicines.

If it is not the case, it is naturally recommended to avoid it, so as not to increase the burden on the body and make it worse. Even if it is safe, these may not be suitable for everyone, every disease, and every type of disease. Regular treatment should be the main method, supplemented by the above methods. You can also discuss with the attending physician whether it is feasible. The above methods improve on their own so as not to delay treatment.

Myth 4: It’s good to live well through diet, healthy practice, and a good life?
The same is true for diet, work and rest, and a good life. It is true that a good life can help improve your physical condition. However, chronic diseases in the body are the result of long-term accumulation.

Severe, acute illnesses are naturally quite dangerous, let alone. Therefore, if symptoms and diseases have not yet appeared, a healthy life can be maintained; but if they have already appeared, they still need to be checked first and supplemented with healthy life.
