"THE SYMPTOM OF" or "THE SIDE EFFECT FROM"

often many come to forums like this and are looking for what they or another may have healthwise and dont take alot into consideration or the others who read and comment dont have alot of info and its alot of spectulation and leaves alot of them big question marks in the head and often leads to panic and anxiety by those who read it and is why doctors are so against the self diagnosis itself. I do believe this can be a major issue but applaud anyone who tries to find out what is wrong with a love one or with one self when doctors cant seem to give us any answers and we see the others pain or deal with it ourselves.

BUT KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU DONT GIVE ALL THE DETAILS ITS VERY HARD FOR EVEN A DOCTOR TO GIVE A DIAGNOSES WITH INSTRUMENTS AND TEST YET ALONE SOMEONE ACROSS THE WORLD WIDE NET WHEN THEY OFTEN ARENT EDUCATED TO KNOW AND CANT SEE YOU PERSONALLY AND PHYSICALLY FOR THEMSELF AND NEED TO RELY ON INFORMATION GIVEN TO HELP SO PLEASE BE AS DETAILED AS YOU CAN WITH YOUR DOCTOR AS WEL AS HERE AT THIS SITE AND OTHERS RELATED TO HEALTH

below is just a small list of common side affects from DRUGS "legal and non legal"

dizzyness, lightheaded, nervousness, vertigo, headaches,
diarrhea, loose stools, constipation,
thoughts of suicide, sleeplessness, sleepyness, changes in behavior,

NOTE THESE ARE "SIDE EFFECTS NOT SYMPTOMS" IN MANY CASES IF A PATIENT IS USING DRUGS AND YET ARE OFTEN PRESENTATED AS A SYMPTOM OF THE PROPOSED ILLNESS/SICKNESS IN QUESTION

so whether for yourself or for another be sure to let doctor know or other who is tryin to help if medications are being taken and what ones and their side affects as well as strength cause often this will help greatly to help to decide what is a symptom vs a side affect of another thing.

a good site that has a great list of meds and their side affects as well that may be of assistance to you or another.


"PRACTISING MEDICINE"
as it sounds that is exactly what doctors do "practise medicine" and we are the guinea pigs so to speak...but the more we help them to understand the more help we can expect


PANIC ATTACKS AND ANXIETY ARE REAL AND CAN FEEL AS IF YOUR DIEING BUT IT SHOULD BE KEPT IN MIND THAT OFTEN THEY ARE AN OVER REACTION TO SOMETHING THAT HAPENS TO US AND ONLY FEEL AS IF THE END OF THE WORLD AND LEARNING HOW TO HANDLE THEM CAN BE A STRUGGLE BUT CAN BE DONE WITH HELP OF OTHERS AS WELL AS A BETTER UNDERSTANDING.
AS WE LEARN TO UNDERSTAND WE ARE MORE AWARE OF WHAT TO EXPECT AND HAVE EXPERIENCED IT AND ARE MORE EDUCATED AND YES EVEN ABLE TO HELP OTHERS MORE SO BY KNOWING "THUS WHY WE GO TO DOCTORS TO BEGIN WITH" CAUSE THEY KNOW MORE...RIGHT?
