Below we describe 7 such basic diseases and their symptoms.
Colds quite often accompanied by unpleasant "scratchy" feeling in the throat. However, if the pain becomes unbearable, I advise you not to tolerate, and as soon as possible to go to the doctor it's highly likely that you have developed a strep sore throat and need treatment with antibiotics.
Mucus and sputum that during a cold accumulate in the throat and nose can easily get into the ear and cause inflammation and secondary infection.

Designate the least bit, or worse, to warm the ear with a lamp not in any case!
The symptoms of flu and colds, especially in the early stages, remarkably similar to each other. But there is one symptom peculiar to influenza. We are talking about the aches and pains throughout the body, including internal organs such as the stomach. If along with a runny nose and sore throat you feel something, call your doctor if you need treatment for the flu, because, as we know, this disease, unlike the flu, there are a lot of complications.
That's already a bottle of cough syrup coming to an end, and you still get sick... you Know that's not normal! If you have a cough that won't go away for about two weeks, go immediately to the hospital — it can indicate the presence of bronchitis or even pneumonia.
Since the common cold is a disease of the upper respiratory tract minor breathing difficulties the characters. But if you are experiencing shortness of breath, hoarseness and shortness of breath, it's time to see a specialist — it seems that you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or as it is also called COPD.

It seems that everything should be obvious, however, judging by the experience of doctors, patients often accept violations of a chair for one of the symptoms of colds and don't treat them too seriously. However, nausea, bloody diarrhea, and other disorders are most likely caused by food poisoning or even a stomach virus. In any case, you need to go to the doctor and not to self-medicate.
