  • (#16) A Hand Spasm Became A Seizure

    From Redditor /u/SeaBeeDecodesLife:

    Not me, but my childhood best friend. She had this thing where her hand would spasm. It was kind of like a hand tremor. I just assumed it was a tic, since I have a similar one (knee bouncing up and down) when I get nervous. Once, when I asked her about it, she said she had pins and needles, so I also considered that she might just be shaking it off (even though the tremors were obviously an involuntary movement).

    That's really all there was. There were no other symptoms. She was fine for a really long time and then suddenly she just rapidly declined within the space of 24 hours.

    We were in class when she went down and started seizing. Just as quick as she'd gone down, she was awake again and fine. My teacher took her to the nurse, and the nurse called her parents. I've had to work hard to try and not be angry at the fact her parents chose to take her home that night instead of taking her straight to the emergency room. She had a headache, so they gave her ibuprofen and put her to bed. She died sometime in the night of an undiagnosed brain tumor.

    Often, brain tumors are misdiagnosed as psychiatric issues. So if you notice a rapid decline in your mental health/stability without any clear reason, or even with a reason, get a scan done.

  • (#21) Never Ignore Spinal Pain

    From Redditor /u/DragonToothGarden:

    For two years over 20 doctors told me it was impossible that the very localized, severe pain deep inside my spine was anything other than "childhood trauma and stress from my job manifesting into pain and I needed to meditate and sh*t." I was "too young" for such pain. It came out of the blue while I was a 26-year-old in excellent shape. Plus, expect more disbelief when you have complaints of pain if you are female.

    That pain turned out to be an aggressive tumor growing inside a vertebrae that nearly killed me. Had lifesaving surgery in Europe, but because I was misdiagnosed for so long, I'm now in agonizing pain and disabled.

    I had to fight for tests, treatment, etc., and this was with excellent insurance. I just "looked too good" on the outside, even when I'd be weeping and unable to stand up (yet then, when I'd show emotion from the pain, I was deemed some weepy, dramatic junkie wanting drugs and attention).

  • (#20) The Importance Of Routine Eye Exams

    From Redditor /u/NoMansLight:

    Get your damn eyes checked! Doesn't matter if you have 20/20 vision (or think you do), you should get a yearly checkup from an optometrist.

    I have never had a problem with my vision, and just last week my wife made an appointment with the optometrist for the both of us. Well, it turns out I do have 20/20 vision and good peripheral vision (for now), but the optometrist also discovered I have a rare disease. Pigment dispersion syndrome, most often found in people between 20 to 40 years old. A clear indication of this ailment is Krukenberg spindles on the cornea. Pigment from your iris sloughs off and floats freely in the aqueous humor, and it can get lodged in the drainage system of your eye, thus causing increased interocular pressure - when this happens it's called pigment glaucoma and can lead to permanent blindness.

    So despite otherwise good eyesight, there's a possibility I'll go blind at a pretty young age, there are no signs of open angle increased intraocular pressure, the kind caused by pigment glaucoma, and the damage is permanent. Get your eyes checked!

  • (#13) The Funky Knee Trick

    From Redditor /u/I_Hunt_N00bs:

    My right knee had been slightly funky for a couple of years. I originally noticed it after I did a bad tackle playing soccer and landed on my knee. I presumed it was just going to be a glitch that I would have to deal with for the rest of my life. It didn't hurt or anything, but what was funky was you could put your fingers on the inside of my knee and as I compressed and extended my knee you could feel something clicking past tendons and soft tissues.

    After a number of years it seemed like there was a bit of swelling around my knee, and during some downtime from work I decided I should finally see a doctor about it. I told him about the clicking and when I showed him, his face isn't something I'll forget - it was full of disbelief, and he said, "Well, that's not something I have ever felt before," then sent me off for an X-ray and ultrasound. Turns out I had an osteochondroma (an abnormal bone spur) on the inside of my knee, and the tendons were literally slipping from one side to the other as I bent my knee back and forth.

    The reason I should have looked into it sooner is because before I got a chance to see the specialist and book a surgery to have it removed, the spur punctured something in my knee. It caused a lot of swelling and excruciating pain. I went straight to the emergency room, was admitted straight away, and they were considering operating that night.

    In the end they sent me home after four days of rest and observation, and I got it removed a couple of weeks later with no major issues.

    At the time, the specialist noted sometimes these things can be genetic and appear in other places in the body... I have a weird clicking in my right foot at the moment that I have no explanation for, and it's starting to get slightly painful. I should probably go see a doctor.

  • (#18) Gradual Fatigue

    From Redditor /u/PhenotypicalWalrus:

    Not me, but my mother. There were several years where it was clear her energy level was declining and she was getting more tired and irritable. It was definitely something gradual but noteworthy.

    I remember the first time it was brought up to the doctor. They felt it was just related to age or menopause, but within a year my mother was so tired she could hardly get out of bed.

    Turns out her thyroid was basically shutting down over the year or two this built up. By the time we had a diagnosis from an endocrinologist, she essentially had no thyroid function.

    Same thing recently happened to my older sister two years ago, so anytime I seem less energetic than usual, my family goes into full-blown freakout trying to make me go get blood work done.

  • (#6) A Shrinking Mole

    From Redditor /u/notsolittleliongirl:

    My dad has a lot of moles, and my mom forced him to go to the dermatologist because he hadn't been in years. She was worried about a few of the big moles that she thought might be getting bigger. The dermatologist pointed one out and asked if that was one they were concerned about. My mom said that one actually seemed like it was getting smaller, so she wasn't concerned. The doctor informed my parents they were doing a biopsy right there and then, and he cut a 1.5-inch-long chunk out of my dad's back.

    It was melanoma. The really bad skin cancer. It turns out, if a mole is getting smaller, it's probably because the immune system has a reason to attack it.

About This Tool

The pace of modern life has become faster, people’s life pressures have gradually increased, and news of sudden deaths are not uncommon. According to relevant health statistics reports, more than 1000,000 people in the world suffer from sudden cardiac death each year, this number is much larger than the number of deaths caused by suicide, traffic accidents, and leukemia. Although many diseases have obvious symptoms, many chronic or underlying diseases only occur after a long period of an unhealthy lifestyle. 

However, the body sends out warning signs before the onset of almost all diseases, and the cause of rapid deterioration is that the signals are ignored. The random tool shares 25 important warning signs shared by people with health issues, their experiences tell all people should not ignore any health signs.
