The Most Common Health Conditions That Go Unnoticed
Most people do not take their health seriously because they tend to dismiss possible health issues. The lack of seriousness to personal health is so rampant that some people consult their acquaintances for medical issues. Some signs and symptoms can be easily dismissed as general body weakness. In fact some people only visit a doctor only when several self-medications have failed which is very dangerous.
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. When such symptoms most people self-medicate on painkillers without thinking there could be deeper health issues.
The first physical health issue is arthritis. Arthritis is in most cases diagnosed when it is too late and has caused a lot of damage to the body. The main symptoms of a person with arthritis is feeling pain in the joints where it has occurred and sometimes being stiff. If not keen you can easily dismiss such symptoms as a sign of fatigue. When you notice that the same symptoms of pain and stiffness are persistent, you should take action and see a physician. A lot of people live with long life by eating foods rich in calcium and a lot of exercises when they discover early that they have arthritis.
The second tip is a condition known as 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. The symptoms include the inability to hold pee even when you want to do so which leads to a leak. 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. You should never ignore several cases of urine leakage hence visit a physician. More information about this condition can easily e accessed in blogs and articles.
Finally, you should also be on the lookout of flat feet. One can quickly notice flat feet if they check the shape of their feet. There should be an arch at the bottom of your feet when which should be noticeable when you step of a flat surface. You might not think it’s a health issue until it starts to mess with your ability to stand on your feet or walk for long distances. Flat feet have a remedy, and one can seek further assistance from a doctor on how to manage and treat the condition.
