12 Scary Symptoms That Are Usually Harmless

Posted on

Shakiness

Anyone who experiences shakiness has probably questioned whether it’s Parkinson disease? Well, not always. Many people can experience shakiness when they haven’t eaten properly or for a long time. Some other reasons include overstressing, or an iodine and vitamin B12 deficiency.

Vertical fingernail ridges

Nail ridges are kind of similar to wrinkles on our faces. They are caused by the aging processes and do not bring any harm to your body. Its medical name is onychorrhexis, which is translated as “brittle nails.” The only reason why you should see a doctor for this is if your nails are discolored or distorted, and the ridges are horizontal.

Broken blood vessels in the eye

Broken blood vessels in your eye don’t mean that you’re going blind. Unless it happens often and your eyes look completely red, there should be no reason to worry. Broken blood vessels can be caused by rubbing your eyes really hard or sneezing hard. Another reason could be tired eyes or tension. The best thing to do here is to relax your eyes as much as you can, and do some eye exercises.

Forgetting things

Memory glitches are a common thing for many people, and there are a lot of things that cause them. For example: stress, rush, tiredness, or even drinking too much. And don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you have Alzheimer’s. If you notice that you’ve started forgetting what daily things are meant for, or what you said a couple of minutes ago, you should consult your doctor. Otherwise, just find some time for yourself and get some good rest.

Getting cold rather often

Getting cold is a sign of aging. As we get older, we lose body mass and start having less muscle, which leads to less insulation. Basically, your internal thermostat changes and you feel cold more often. There is nothing special about it. Though, if the change is sudden and big, and you get super cold from out of nowhere, you should check your thyroid as soon as possible.
