One of the first things I noticed right before I was diagnosed as being a type 2 diabetic was needing to urinate often and feeling tired a lot. I went in to have my physical and although I was relieved to find out what was explaining the symptoms that had plagued me, I was also scared of the road ahead with being a diabetic.

I have compiled a list of symptoms that according to other online sources, you should not ingore. Make sure you always seek medical advice from a medical professional if you every question your health.

  • According to Women’s Health Magazine, you should see a Doc if you have a severe and presitant headache. It could be a migraine, but it could be something more serious.
  • Unexplained weight loss. You may be happy you lost some weight, but according to the Mayo Clinic, it could be the sign of a serious, underlying health issue.
  • Chest Pain. AARP has warned that it could be something very serious, even if you think it isn’t.
  • Sudden dizziness could mean something as bad as a heart attacj according to this Reader’s Digest Article.
  • That sharp pain in your side could be just too much movement while exersizing, or it could be something more troublesome according to ABCnews.com
  • If you are a woman of child-bearing age, you should not ignore heavy, painful periods as it could be an ectopic pregnancy accoring to this article on REDBOOK.

The bottom line is, if something doesn’t feel right, don’t ignore it and don’t give up on finding the answers. I think we all know when something is not right inside ourselves.
