10 Signs You Need to See a Doctor

category: Health

Ok, so we all get pains and sniffles now and again and we are all guilty of Googling health issues (not a good idea).

There are many reasons why you might need to see a doctor. Some symptoms are obvious, like a broken bone or a high fever. But other symptoms may be more subtle, and it's not always clear whether or not you need medical attention.

This article lists 10 signs that you should see a doctor, even if they don't seem serious. These symptoms can be caused by a variety of health problems, so it's important to get them checked out by a medical professional.

Here are 10 things you need to see your doctor about.

  • Painful swallowing (more than a sore or dry throat)
  • Earache
  • A cough that lasts more than 2 or 3 weeks
  • Persistent or severe vomiting
  • A fever that doesn’t go down or go away
  • Symptoms that last more than 10 days or get worse instead of better
  • Change in bowel movements: If you notice a sudden change in your bowel patterns, such as constipation, diarrhea, or black stools
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Dizziness or feeling like you are going to faint
  • Unexplained weight loss1

1. If you have hit your head, go to the doctor immediately if you have any of the following symptoms: Dizziness, nausea, vomiting, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, sensitivity to light and noise2.

2. Even if symptoms are not severe, you should see a doctor if they persist for more than three weeks or recur3. These include having a persistent cough (with or without discharge), chest pain or soreness, sore throat, body aches, or persistent fatigue3.

3. There are dozens of potential reasons to see a doctor: from digestive problems to infection to depression or anxiety4. Unexplained weight loss can be caused by an undiagnosed cancer, so always go to see a doctor if you start to shed pounds unexpectedly4.
