12 Scary Symptoms That Are Usually Harmless

Posted on

Cracking joints

Your mom probably told you that cracking your joints will cause arthritis, and you should stop doing it. Though, there is nothing harmful about doing it since it’s just air that appears in the joint and then collapses. As a result, we hear a “cracking” sound.

However, if you experience discomfort while cracking, it’s better to consult your doctor.

Dizziness after sitting

When you stand up from sitting for a long time you might experience an uncomfortable dizziness. But don’t worry, there is nothing scary in this too. Blood flows to the brain when you change your position, and it might even cause you to see stars. All you have to do is stand still for a couple of seconds and everything will go back to normal.

Muscle twitching

Everyone knows what muscle twitching is. It feels scary and weird, but it doesn’t mean ALS, since most of the time this symptom is harmless. There are several reasons why you might experience muscle twitching, and among them are: you might have overextended your muscles, you feel anxious, or you didn’t drink enough water.

Cramping

Despite popular beliefs, cramping is not always caused by multiple sclerosis. The most common reason for it is dehydration. When your body experiences a lack of water, muscles will sporadically tighten up, giving you a signal that you don’t drink enough. If cramping happens too often, it’s better to consult your doctor, but if it happens every now and then, then it’s nothing to worry about.
