In this video, we’re going to talk about the 8 dangerous signs that you should never ignore.
Never ignore these 8 dangerous signs—ALWAYS see your doctor or head to the emergency room:
1. Chronic cough
If zinc, vitamin D, and calcium do not help resolve a cough within a few weeks, there could be a more serious problem—especially if you experience difficulty swallowing, a fever, swollen lymph nodes, or worsening symptoms.
2. Loss of vision
This could be a sign of a blood clot, diabetes, or another serious issue.
3. Drooping/weakness on one side
This is a tell-tale sign of stroke. Use this acronym: F - Face drooping A - Arm weakness S - Speech difficulty T - Time to call 911
4. Changing moles
Moles that grow or change shape or color could be melanomas. Use this acronym to tell the signs of melanoma: A - Asymmetrical B - Border (melanomas often don’t have smooth or rounded borders) C - Colors (melanomas can change colors) D - Diameter (melanomas are often greater than 6mm, or a pencil eraser) E - Evolution (melanomas change, grow, or evolve)
5. Frequent and excessive thirst
If you experience extreme thirst and dry mouth without exercise, being hot, or taking potassium or diuretics, this could be a sign of diabetes.
6. Tremors while resting
This could be an early sign of Parkinson’s disease.
7. Changes in breasts
Changes in your breast tissue, such as lumps, can be a sign of breast cancer.
8. Blood in stool
This could be a sign of hemorrhoids, ulcers, or colorectal cancer. Keep in mind that beets can make your stool red and appear bloody.
