Disclaimer: Not medical or professional advice.

This article is not to make you a hypochondriac, but, instead, to not let you forget something important that can change your life and improve your health.

Tiredness

It has become fashionable to be tired: the person has to work more and sleepless. But if tiredness does not let you go even during the weekends and holidays, maybe, the problem is not in the workload. Tiredness is a general symptom of various diseases. First, you should see your doctor to check if your thyroid is working correctly. 

Sweating

To sweat, a lot is good when you are doing sport. To sweat a lot during the night is normal if it is too hot in the bedroom. But, maybe, sudden flare-ups are not associated with activity or even warm blanket, but with blockage of the coronary artery. And this can lead to a heart attack.

Heartburn 

Sometimes, feelings similar to heartburn can indicate not the tricky relationship of the stomach with the esophagus but about heart problems.

Weight Loss

Many people dream about losing weight without diet, exercise, and changes in lifestyle. Therefore, if the weight is lost on its own, this is considered something to be happy about. In reality, do not hurry with conclusions. Sudden weight loss is one of the signs of oncological disease. Therefore, think about what could cause the weight loss together with your doctor. 

Constipation

Constipation, of course, is hard to prognosis. In general, an unbalanced diet and lack of water are its causes. If you blame sandwiches from time to time, you may not notice your body’s signals of diabetes. Therefore, it is recommended to do blood tests and check sugar levels once a year.

Lack of Sleep

You feel like you have not been sleeping when you wake up in the morning. If you went to sleep five hours ago, then, headache is a natural reaction of your body to the lack of rest. But suppose you want to return to bed in the morning no matter how much you slept. In that case, maybe, you are suffering from a lack of oxygen during sleep due to obstructed apnoea. This is a cessation of breathing during sleep; it is often found in people who snore. Try to record your snore and listen to the recording together with your doctor. If you have long pauses between the breaths, then you need to treat your snore. 

Dry Skin

Your skin became tight, peeling, even itching, although this does not seem like an allergy. Maybe, your skin is just lacking moisture. But, maybe, this is due to disruption in thyroid function. Blood tests checking your hormone levels will be able to tell better. 

Nails Change Form and Color

Bended nails may be a sign of anemia, changes of nail color — of kidney problems, and thickening and thickenings and protrusions in the cuticle area – about diseases of the heart and lungs. This causes oxygen starvation in the tissues.

Pale Skin

Pale skin is one of the signs of iron deficiency anemia, which is easily treated by regularly doing blood tests and keeping doctor’s recommendations.

Changes in Handwriting

Maybe, your handwriting had changed due to you forgetting when you wrote something by hand, but, maybe, the reason for jagged letters is tremor. That is, shaking hands, which is a sign of various diseases.

Leg Cramps

Sportsmen, especially those just starting, know that leg cramps can happen due to heavy exercises. It is enough to correct the type of exercise, and everything goes back to normal. But if leg cramps occur when you are climbing the stairs – this is not a good sign. Maybe, blood clots are forming in your inferior limb arteries, which is best to be diagnosed as early as possible.
