10 Body Signs That Shouldn't Be Ignored

Jun 22, 2018 by apost team

The human body is complicated. It does a lot of things that we can’t see to keep you happy, healthy, and alive. Sometimes, your body gives you clear signs that something is wrong, and you should be paying attention. 

Here are 10 signs from your body that you need to see a doctor.

1. Pink Feet

If the soles of your feet are consistently more pink or reddish in color or the skin looks thin, you might want to get your blood sugar checked. See an endocrinologist.


2. Hugging Or Tight Feeling

If you constantly feel as if someone is hugging or tying you up around the waist or chest, ask a doctor to do some tests to see if you may have Multiple Sclerosis. See a neurologist.

3. Eyebrows Thinning

If you notice some thinning in your eyebrows, you may be suffering from hyperthyroidism. See an endocrinologist.

4. Swelling Of The Toes

Regardless of whether or not your skin appears irritated or inflamed, swelling of toes can indicate psoriatic arthritis and needs to be checked out. See a dermatologist or a rheumatologist.

5. Loss Of Appetite

Everybody gets this on occasion, but if you lose your appetite for twenty-four hours or longer, you may have some sort of gastrointestinal problem that needs attention. See a gastroenterologist.

6. Unexplainable Itch

Just like the last item, everyone gets this condition on occasion. If you have an itch, check first to see that it isn’t because of a bug bite or other explainable cause. If the itching doesn’t go away after a few days, it may be an indication of diabetes. See an endocrinologist.

7. Adverse Reaction To Being Inside

If it’s harder for you to breathe when you’re inside or you can’t feel comfortable without at least a window open, you may either be at risk for cardiac failure or your thyroid may be having trouble correctly regulating your body temperature. See a cardiologist and an endocrinologist.

8. Weird Temperature Changes

If you feel hot to the point of sweating in the winter or freezing in the summer, your thyroid is likely incorrectly regulating your body temperature. See an endocrinologist.

9. Kleptomania

A sudden urge to take things that aren’t yours may indicate the onset of dementia. See a neurologist or a therapist.

10. Nail Clubbing

If your nails and the tips of your fingers swell and widen, you may be dealing with heart problems. See a cardiologist first, then your primary physician, as this can indicate many different conditions.
