( Maybe you’ve had a few different symptoms for a short while, and you’re wondering why they haven’t gone away. They could be mild, or they could be more serious. They may be noticeable, or they may be invisible to the naked eye. Either way, if you suffer with any symptom for more than a few weeks, even a cough, you should go to see a doctor. You can’t be too careful when it comes to your health.

Symptoms That Need Immediate Medical Attention

There are a few symptoms that you should treat more urgently than others. You should definitely mention these on the phone when you call the doctor’s office.

Shortness of breath.
High fever.
Unexplained weight loss.
Unexplained changes in your toilet habits.
Changes in personality.
Flashes of light.

In some cases, you may want to visit a doctor for something you can’t really see. For example, if you feel low, perhaps to the point you’re having suicidal thoughts, this is a sign you should see your doctor too. Mental health needs to be taken just as seriously as physical health.

If you’re afraid of making the call, try not to worry. There are so many developments in the medical world each and every day. There’s bound to be something to help you and your condition if you need it. There are usually multiple options for each condition too. This is largely down to clinical trials. Take a look at the infographic below to learn more about clinical trials:
