Have you overreacted to a symptom and later found out it was nothing? Many of us have, and after fooling ourselves with such scare we might be more inclined to ignore symptoms that we are experiencing. However, here are a few symptoms that you should never ignore. A sudden intense headache that you feel like is the worst you have had in your life, and that peaks within seconds or minutes, could mean an aneurysm, or that a blood vessel has suddenly burst, which require emergency help immediately. Chest pain can often mean heart attack, whether if it is mild or intense. When combined with pain down an arm, nausea, sweating, and shortness of breath, delay could cause the muscle to be damage if it is not attended to in a timely manner. Another symptom you shouldn’t ignore, especially for seniors and elderly folks, is unusually bleeding. colon cancer can cause rectal bleeding, while bloody vomit can be result of stomach or esophageal cancer. People with lung cancer can experience bloody cough. Despite all that, some of these scenarios are the worst case scenario, and seek medical help immediately whenever the symptoms ever occur.
