Our body is a complex mechanism that constantly sends us information about faults in our internal organs. Yet we ignore them most of the time.
At Boredmojo, we have decided to share with you 10 worrying signals from our body that should not be overlooked.
Dark circles (dark circles under the eyes)
Dark circles under the eyes can be due to lack of sleep: Doctors recommend getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep a day. However, they can also indicate the existence of another problem, for example anemia, when too few erythrocytes are produced in the body, which causes darkening of the skin under the eyes.
Finger color change
If you notice that your fingers often change color, you should know that this is not trivial. This is called Raynaud’s phenomenon: a condition where cold temperatures cause spasms in the blood vessels, which leads to the change in color of the skin of the fingers.
If your eyes get tired often or if you notice that you can’t recognize people or road signs at a normal distance, it is very likely that you are developing myopia or astigmatism. See an ophthalmologist.
Transparent shapes that float before the eyes
They can take different forms: points, lines, etc. They always appear suddenly and especially in bright white light. If this visual disturbance does not go away after a week, go see an ophthalmologist. It could be a sign that you are starting to have cataracts or other serious eye problems.
“Noises” in the stomach
Noises in the stomach are related to the functioning of the intestine. If this happens to you from time to time, you have nothing to worry about. But if this happens to you often and causes you pain, it is better to go see a doctor.
