Signs of ill-health - What should you do?
If you notice anything unusual, or a change which you are unable to explain, it is highly advisable to have a check-up with your doctor (family physician or general practitioner). If necessary he or she will refer you to a specialist relating to your symptoms once a full physical exam and medical history discussion has been completed.
In some instances, the underlying cause is simple to pinpoint and may be just as clear-cut to treat effectively. In other cases, the signs are flagging a more serious cause which will need to be appropriately tested and diagnosed in order to effectively treat or manage.
