When you are in pain or experiencing out of the ordinary changes in your body or behavior, chances are it is your body giving you hints that there may be something going on. For instance, when a woman is early in her pregnancy she may experience fatigue, nausea, loss or increase of appetite, etc. Or if you are starting to catch a cold you may notice congestion, sneezing body aches just to name a few symptoms. Our bodies are sensitive to change and let us know when there is something a muck going on.
If you find yourself suffering from headaches, seizures, nausea and/or vomiting, vertigo, weakness on one side of the body, hearing changes, vision problems, or even behavioral chances, chances are there may be something neurological going on. To be more precise, specific symptoms such as these are often accompanied with the diagnosis of arachnoidcysts. Although arachnoid cysts are not actually tumors (they are fluid-filled sacs that generally develop between the brain/spinal cord and the arachnoid membrane), they can still produce serious symptoms and complications; they may also require surgery depending on the size. There are many symptoms that can relate to a number of different diagnoses so it is imperative to see a medical professional for an opinion, diagnosis and treatment.
Another common but at times overlooked symptom by many, abdominal pain. Women who may suffer from chronic pelvic or lower abdominal pain may have a far more serious complication going on besides just a stomach ache or menstrual cramps. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can cause severe abdominal pain in women, many times pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is caused by a sexually transmitted disease. PID is an infection of the female reproductive system and it is imperative to seek help from a medical professional if one is suffering from chronic abdominal pain, lower back pain, unusual vaginal discharge, fatigue, fever or diarrhea. If left untreated, PID can lead to many more complications so it is extremely important to get treatment before the infection worsens.
One thing is for sure, our bodies know when there is something wrong going on. Listen to your body and the symptoms you are going through and ask your doctor as many questions as you can, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
