Symptoms Men Should Never Ignore

Published on

It is actually true; facts don’t lie when they say that men actually depart sooner than women, and there are quite a number of theories that actually make men’s life span shorter than women’s.

There’s what’s referred to as male chauvinism, which is a scenario whereby men tend to assume other symptoms are just small things that end up piling up and getting worse.

Below, I have compiled a list of symptoms that you, as a man, cannot ignore. If you have a male person in your life, then refer to this article for their benefit.

Chest Pain
Actually, it’s not necessarily that all chest pains raise an alarm, but a condition like heart disease should and cannot be ignored because it has resulted in the deaths of many men. Ensure you consult your doctor, especially if the pain is accompanied by other symptoms such as shortness of breath.

Sudden Weight gain Or Loss
This thing of just waking up one fine morning and realizing that you have mysteriously added more kilos—some even take a short time to realize this—also applies vice versa. If you lose or gain about 2.26 kg or more in a short period of time without any changes in your exercise routine or diet, then this may be a sign of a thyroid disorder (a condition that occurs when your thyroid gland produces too much or too little of the thyroid hormone).

Change in Stools
Sounds creepy? Don’t downplay it; always check your stool for color, consistency, and any other changes. Especially if you note red or black stool, that’s a great sign that shows the presence of blood and that tells you that something isn’t right.

Changes in Urination
Do you ever feel pain when peeing? And you’ve noticed changes in the urine stream and frequency of urination. All of these symptoms can be linked to prostate cancer (this is cancer of the prostate gland, which is a small, walnut-shaped gland in males that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm). Like other types of cancer, the earlier it is detected, the better your chances of surviving. As such, always consider reaching out to your doctor for treatment.

Numbness
If you feel any numbness in your arms or hands, even your feet, don’t hesitate a second. There are many conditions that can cause numbness and tingling, such as arthritis, pinched nerves, carpal tunnel syndrome, and diabetes. It could also be a symptom of thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), which is caused by overuse movements and injuries. It occurs when blood vessels and nerves in between your collarbone and upper ribs become compressed.

Leg Cramps
Everybody, almost everyone, has experienced this at some point in their lives. It is basically blockages in the arteries preventing blood from reaching the muscles, and they can actually cramp up. Sometimes it blows away by relaxing and massaging it, but always consider involving a medical expert.

Dry Mouth

Dry Mouth usually occurs when the mouth is not producing enough saliva. As far as dehydration can also cause it, it is good to always check on it, especially if you are under medication. It could be a side effect; if you prove so, consider talking to your doctor, as dry mouth can lead to other oral health problems, such as bad breath and cavities.

Excessive Anger
Anger is normal, especially when you are annoyed. What’s not normal is being excessively irritable and angry all the time; this might be a symptom of low testosterone or another uncovered mental health issue. Bursts of anger and excessive irritability can be a sign of depression in men. There isn’t such a thing as he was born that way, it is their way! Seek support before it gets worse and puts you in trouble if you cannot control it.
