Medical Check of Symptoms

Silence The Ringing Once and For All

There are times when you can treat your illnesses at home, but there are times when a medical check of symptoms by a physician or nurse will be necessary.  How do you know when you need a medical check of symptoms?  If you are an adult, you should know a little about your body.  If you have the flu, do you have a high fever?  Is it higher than you normally get when you run a fever?  If it is, you should go and see a doctor.  If you have ears that itch, you may have an ear infection and need to visit your physician for antibiotics to clear it up.  If you are coughing up blood, you should certainly make an appointment to have a medical check of symptoms with your doctor. 

Same thing goes for illnesses that are not related to flu or cold.  If it burns when you urinate, you may have a bladder infection.  If you do not have time to visit the doctor, try to stop drinking soft drinks and drink more water than you normally do.  If the symptoms persist, you should see a doctor or nurse.  You may also need antibiotics to clear up the infection.  If you fall and the cut is bleeding excessively or looks deep, you will need to visit the clinic or hospital.  There may be a need for stitches, but you will not know until you visit a medical professional.  If you fall and hear something snap, such as a broken bone, or some part of your body swells from the fall, like your ankle, you should probably seek medical attention.  A medical check of symptoms will let the doctor know what further course of action needs to be taken.

With children, it is a bit harder to judge how severe their symptoms are.  If you notice anything out of the ordinary (i.e. something other than the normal sniffles or runny nose), you should get a medical check of symptoms.  Because children often can’t tell us exactly what hurts or how badly, it is best to seek medical attention.
