Be Careful with Self Medication
Sure, every now and then, we've all taken a pill for a headache or a bloated stomach without having the doctor's recommendation or prescription. And this isn't a problem if it happens rarely and it doesn't form a pattern. But once the same ache repeats itself and becomes chronic, you could deal with a serious health problem, and you should make an appointment with your family doctor or a specialist. The only thing self medication can do is relief pain, help decrease our body temperature when we have a fever, fight dizziness and PMS symptoms. But if this mild disease happens often, it's time to see a doctor.
Analgesic medications or pain relievers fight only the symptoms and not the cause, and when administrated on a long term they could lead to secondary effects, such as gastric disorders. They will also dely your decision to meet with a doctor and receive a correct diagnosis. So, self medication is only a short-term solution. If you want to really be well, make an appointment with a doctor!
3 Questions You Must Ask Your Doctor
For many of us, making a doctor appointment takes a while, even though we have a medical problem. Why? Because we are afraid of doctors. This is something in human nature and we can't deny it. However, things have changed and doctors are more and more open to discuss all the details with their patients, treat them kindly and answer all their questions. Yes, sometimes we might not understand all the medical terms and we're ashamed to ask, but we shouldn't be. Ask everything you need to know about your illness because it is your body. Here are the top 3 questions you should ask your doctor:
1. What is this test for? It's important to know the reason behind every test and, once the results are out, the meaning of every result. Only this way, you can learn more about your illness and how to fight it.
2. What are the possible complications? Every illness comes with possible complications because our body is a complicated machine. Ask your doctor about any possible complications to be prepared to identify them in case they make an appearance, and tell your doctor about them.
3. Are there any alternatives? Don't settle for the first treatment you are prescribed. Ask your doctor about side effects for every drug and if they are alternatives. Be informed about your illness and its treatment.
