When your body experiences something unusual, it is highly possible for your mind to tell you that something’s wrong. The mind-body connection is yet to be studied and scientists hope to discover how the mind sends us signals before we experience the distress.
Here is a list of 10 ways of how our body reacts and warns us to prevent any disease. Let us describe what is happening inside your body when:
You sense a creeping feeling in your legs
When you experience a strange sensation at the bottom of your legs similar to crawling, or feel an urge to move, it may indicate a restless leg syndrome. Doctors say it is a long-term disorder that suddenly occurs when the body is resting, especially at night.
The skin is getting thicker
Never underestimate any changes in the skin or skin problems, as it can be a symptom of a bigger problem. If you experience your skin is getting itchy and thicker, that can be a sign of many internal problems, including eczema, hormonal misbalance, or maybe allergies. Consult your doctor and make some blood tests to prove what is really going on inside your body.
You have too much anger and become aggressive
It is not always your personality that is responsible for your anger bursts. Some researchers are discovering that depression can lead to more aggression towards your close ones and keeping a lot of anger inside you. With that said, depression is not just about a lack of energy and lying in bed – it is a bigger issue with additional symptoms such as anger.
You lose smell, have intense dreams, or your handwriting is different
You may have heard of Parkinson’s disease and its link to elderly people. But do you know the initial symptoms or the illness? Well, some of the most common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are tremors, slow-moving, speech and writing difficulties, and often lack of sleep and nightmares.
The color in your eyes changes
If you are under 45 years-old and notice a grey or white ring around the cornea of the eyes, check your cholesterol levels. Do not worry about the ring, as it will do no harm to your eyes or vision, but always consult a doctor if you see such changes.
You sleep too much
Have you ever heard of hypersomnia? Well, it is a condition when a person cannot stay awake for too long during the day. It isn’t just tiredness, lack of energy, or an indication that a person is lazy. People experiencing hypersomnia can fall asleep anywhere, therefore it is dangerous for them to drive for example without supervision. This effect can be caused by drinking alcohol before going to bed.
You experience low libido, fatigue, and start forgetting things
In many ways, people connect these symptoms with depression, as a person may look tired all the time and unwilling to do everyday tasks. Therefore, doctors came to the conclusion that such symptoms may indicate an imbalance in the thyroid hormones that are of huge importance for our well-being. If you have issues with the thyroid hormones, you may gain weight and feel cold when it is actually warm.
You crave salty foods
It is not wrong to like salty food or add salt to your meals (just do not exaggerate). However, if you only crave for salty food and nothing else, your body may be giving you a sign of iron deficiency, dehydration, anemia, or premenstrual syndrome.
You start to chew ice
Researchers say that wanting to crunch ice can be more than just a habit. This unusual desire can be explained when a person is experiencing anemia or an iron deficiency. It is best to do blood tests and if you have an issue, your doctor will prescribe you supplements.
You constantly feel thirsty
If you are constantly seeking for something to drink and cannot quench your thirst, then maybe you need to check your health. This could be a sign of pregnancy or diabetes. However, if your diet consists of salty and spicy foods, then this may be the case for the incessant thirst.
It is not unusual to feel under the weather every once in a while. Experts are now concentrating on many health problems that don’t just occur out of the blue, but hide a bigger issue and are correlated with other long term effects of stress or mental health imbalance. Rather than ignoring and fell guilty later, make sure your mind and body are well for you to live a long and happy life.
