4 Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore


As you age, you may notice minor changes in your overall health. While some symptoms are a normal part of aging, others require immediate attention.


As you age, you may notice minor changes in your overall health. While some symptoms are a normal part of aging, others require immediate attention. Here are four changes in your health you should never ignore.

1. A wound that won’t heal

Do you have a wound that’s slow to heal? If so, it may be a good idea to see your doctor. If you have a low-grade fever or the injury becomes red and increasingly painful, seek immediate help.

2. An abnormal presence of blood

Unless you have a known medical condition, you must alert your doctor if you notice blood in your stool, urine or spit. If the bleeding is new or recurring and ac­companied by other symptoms, go to the emergency room right away.

3. Unusual stomach pain

Abdominal pain that increases gradually, lasts a long time or appears suddenly should be taken seriously. If this is happening to you, visit your doctor. They may refer you to a gastroenterologist for further testing.

4. Increasing shortness of breath

Shortness of breath that prevents you from doing everyday activities like climbing stairs and going on walks should be investigated. This could be a sign of
a serious health problem, especially if accompanied by a fever or chest pain.

If you have any doubts, don’t he­sitate to consult a health care professional.
