It’s Nothing—Or Is It? Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore

Have you ever had a symptom you neglected to report to your doctor because you felt it was insignificant? Dr. Heidi Feistner, a family practice doctor, says that too many patients fail to report relevant and potentially life-saving symptoms. Weight loss or gain, lumps, numbness or tingling, calf pain, tiredness, vaginal bleeding, sudden headaches, and other symptoms can indicate very serious conditions. One of Dr. Feistner’s patients was excessively tired, but was too embarrassed to report bloody stools. She discovered he had Crohn’s disease. Patients should not be embarrassed or feel stupid about reporting symptoms to their doctor. Asking the right questions may save your life., March 24, 2008
