Your health and the health of your loved ones is the most important thing in the world.
However, for some, visiting a doctor is uncomfortable. Or it may incur a large fee in some countries. Therefore, even if they are in pain or very worried, they put off seeing a professional until it is too late. It is very important to understand when you absolutely need to get to the hospital as soon as possible.
1. The worst headache in your life that started very quickly. Even in the absence of other symptoms, this should be looked at immediately. It can be anything, but most of all it looks like an aneurysm rupture.
2. Based on experience, if you suddenly stop feeling pain after you feel what must be one of the most severe abdominal pains imaginable, it means that your appendix has burst and you need to go to the hospital IMMEDIATELY otherwise you will die
3. "Feeling of impending doom." In fact, it is actually considered a clinical sign and could indicate an impending stroke, heart attack, or other things. It could also be a panic attack, but if it comes out of nowhere and isn't related to a known anxiety disorder, don't be afraid to take it seriously.
4. When you vomit and it looks like coffee grounds.
5. You've taken a new medication and you can't breathe. Anaphylaxis can kill you.
6. Signs of a stroke. The face or mouth is downcast. Weakness of the hands. Their speech is slurred. It's time to call an ambulance. So think FAST.
7. Loss of the ability to distinguish colors in one or both eyes is a sign of a serious problem in the brain.
8. If your urine is so dark that it looks like dark beer, go to the hospital immediately.
9. You were bitten by an animal. ALWAYS ASSUME THAT he has RABIES. If you do not receive treatment for rabies within approximately 48 hours, you may be over the threshold of guaranteed death.
10. If one of your pupils is fully dilated to the point where you can barely see the iris, but the other eye is normal.
11. You were told 48 hours ago that you had gastroenteritis ("stomach flu") and you did everything the doctor said, and not only do you not feel better, you feel worse.
12. Increasing back pain near the kidney? Stones. Go to the hospital before the pain becomes unbearable.
13. The skin/whites of the eyes turn yellow. This is likely caused by a buildup of bilirubin in the blood, which can be caused by severe liver failure.
14. Sudden onset of abdominal pain and vomiting. Appendicitis does not always present with pain in the right lower quadrant.
15. Sudden hearing loss. The faster you get to the hospital, the more likely it is to fix it (statistically).
16. Sudden or gradually increasing numbness or weakness in one or both legs. Recent urinary retention or incontinence. Numbness/lack of sensation in the groin and inner thighs. These are all signs of spinal cord compression and point to a problem that can lead to paralysis of the lower body or loss of strength and control.
17. When the wound you received on your leg by stepping on a rusty nail smells like rot.
18. If you have chest pain and especially if it is accompanied by sweating, nausea/vomiting, pain in your left arm and/or a sense of doom.
