“You know your body best. When you see or feel something different or just feel ‘off’, pay attention. Don’t dismiss it.”- I actually tell this to my patients. We know our bodies best and if we will feel something off go for a check-up. We know what the norm feels like so any change from that means there is something going on.

The article has very nicely put together some important symptoms that should make a person rush to the hospital.
