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.

Young-Onset Parkinson’s

We typically associate Parkinson’s disease with people that are elderly because the average age of a Parkinson’s diagnosis is around 62 years old. However, when a person is diagnosed before the age of 50, it is called a Young-Onset Parkinson’s disease. Unlike the elders who have Parkinson’s, those with Young-Onset usually have slightly different symptoms progressions. For one, they have a slower rate of the symptoms progression, as well as the lower rates of dementia.  However, they have a increased rate of dystonia and dyskinesias according to the National Parkinson Foundation. Whether if your loved one was diagnosed at an later age or have Young-Onset Parkinson’s, it is still important to understand the difference as you could give the patients the proper care that they vitally need.

A-1 home care in Orange County offers affordable and quality services in Parkinson’s care. In addition, we provide in home care services such as live in caregivers, non-medical home care, after surgery care, and alzheimers and dementia care.

Exercising With Arthritis

Many do not associate arthritis with exercise as exercise can cause pain for those with arthritis. Though it might cause some pain, moderate amount of exercise can actually be good for the joints. The condition of the arthritis should also be taken into consideration when patients are participating in exercises. There are different exercises for different stages of arthritis. If the arthritis is in a severe condition, try water therapy. Water therapy lowers the pressure put on the joints and reduces the level of pain. Stretching exercises helps reduce stiffness around the joints. Strength and endurance exercises builds and strengthen the joints. Exercises for arthritis is a great way to prevent further deterioration of the joints. You can learn more about exercising with arthritis from Arthritis Foundation’s “Introduction to Exercise“.
