Non-specific symptoms


Non-specific symptoms

Every disease is characterised by a number of symptoms – specific feelings noticed by a patient. Symptoms help doctors to make a diagnosis and prescribe a suitable treatment. However, it is very difficult to make a diagnosis based solely on symptoms. But why?
First of all let us pay attention to the definition of the word “symptoms”. We have mentioned that a symptom is a feeling. That means that a symptom is subjective by its nature. It is observed by the patient, not by the doctor, and you cannot measure it directly. And people often fail to find the right words to describe what they feel.
Secondly, there exist the so-called non-specific symptoms. These symptoms usually do not involve a specific organ or isolated body system. They do not indicate a specific disease or abnormality; a non-specific symptom can be a feature of many medical conditions, that is the reason why it is called non-specific.
For example, fatigue is a feature of many medical conditions which may be acute or chronic, physical and mental. It may be either a primary or a secondary symptom. And if you experience fatigue at the end of a hard day or after exertion, it is not a symptom at all – it is a physiologically normal and healthy condition.
One more non-specific symptom is a headache. It may indicate a large number of various conditions of the head and neck that range from harmless to life threatening. There are more than 200 types of headache that can be subdivided into two large groups: primary headaches and secondary headaches.

With primary headache disorders we refer to migraine, tension-type headache, cluster headache, trigeminal neuralgia, and hemicrania continua. Secondary headaches may be caused by quite a wide range of health disorders, let us enumerate some of them:

•    medical overuse;
•    subarachnoid hemorrhage;
•    meningitis;
•    encephalitis;
•    intracranial pressure;
•    brain tumor;
•    stroke;
•    carbon monoxide poisoning;
•    Horton disease;
•    angle closure glaucoma.

Of course, these are only some examples: the list of headache causes is much longer. Therefore if you come to a doctor and tell him that you suffer from headache he will not be able to make a diagnosis because your symptom is non-specific (one might even say “too non-specific”). Other non-specific symptoms include skin rash and some other skin changes, nausea, cough, weight loss, pain, etc.

So what should you do if you have any non-specific symptoms and are really worried about your health? Of course, you can undergo a medical examination but medical tests require time and money (not to mention that some procedures are quite unpleasant). But there is another way to determine the cause of your non-specific symptom. It is a full body check up with Health Scan.

A full body check up using the Oberon Diagnostic Technology is a revolutionary non-invasive health scanning method. It is based on Bio-resonance Technology (the detection of harmonious frequencies using with laser). This method is completely safe, it does not cause any unpleasant feelings during the procedure and has no side effects.

Even if you have no symptoms and consider yourself absolutely healthy we strongly recommend that you should have a regular preventive full body check up. At early stages many serious health disorders are asymptomatic, and serious symptoms may materialize when it is too late. Take responsibility for your health – do a full body check up and make sure that you are healthy.
