Healthy Living | Strange Symptoms + What They Mean


Our bodies are weird and wonderful machines that work in ways we don’t always understand., Often, when we are experiencing a health issue, our bodies let us know with the strangest of symptoms. If you have noticed an unusual symptom, there is no need to panic, but you should find out more about the issue and what could be causing it.

There are so many strange symptoms that it would be impossible to talk about them all here. So, I have just covered some of the most common strange symptoms and what they mean.

Extreme Sugar Cravings

If you find yourself thinking about chocolate, cakes, and cookies around the clock, there is a good chance that rather than being a greedy gal, you’re simply dehydrated. When your body does not have enough water to function, it has a harder time releasing glycogens, which are used to provide energy, which means that the body looks for other ways to get the energy it needs. In most cases, this will be sweet, sugar food, which provides an instant boost. So, before you reach for that donut, try drinking a glass of water and waiting a few minutes first.

Vivid Dreams and Nightmares

Being dreaming a lot lately? Does it feel like you’re really there? Do you wake up not knowing whether the dream or your present situation is reality? Maybe you’re pregnant! Many women, when they are pregnant, find that the quality of their dreams change and become much more vivid than usual. It has been speculated that this could be due to pregnant ladies sleeping more and because of the changes in their hormones, but no one really knows! I actually discovered this tip in one of my health related magazines. One magazine that would definitely be beneficial to you if you’re into the healthy life, is Monica’s Health Mag.

Never-ending Thirst

If you feel thirsty all the time and you can’t quench that thirst no matter how much you drink, you could well be suffering from undiagnosed diabetes. This diagnosis gets more likely if you also need to urinate frequently, feel fatigued and have blurred vision. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should have your blood sugar tested without delay.

Eyebrows Thinning

If your eyebrows are thinning or your hair is falling out, don’t panic. It could be that you are suffering from a thyroid condition known as hypothyroidism, whereby the thyroid gland is unable to produce all of the hormones your body needs top function. This is something that can be treated, and your hair is likely to return over time. Other symptoms of hyperthyroidism include depression, irritability, and rapid weight loss, so if you’re experiencing any of these along with your thinning brows, see a doctor as soon as possible.

Orange Tongue

Waking up to find you have an orange tongue can be startling, but it is rarely something to worry about. In the vast majority of cases, orange tongue is caused by nothing more than bacteria. If you haven’t been keeping your mouth as clean as you could, bacteria could be thriving in your mouth, causing your tongue to change color.

Alternatively, an orange tongue could be caused by any medication you are taking, but you should not stop taking it until you have consulted a doctor.

A third cause of orange tongue could be acid reflux due to the movement of acid from the stomach to the mouth area. If you suffer from reflux, try to cut down on meat and dairy and increase your fruit and veg intake.

Twitchy Eyes

Twitchy eyes can be annoying and downright distressing, but they rarely signal a serious problem. The most common causes of this symptom are stress, spending too much time with your eyes fixed on a screen and caffeine.

Excessive Female Facial Hair

An excess of facial hair can be very distressing when you’re a woman, but it could be showing you that there is a problem with your body, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a condition that causes menstrual problems, hair growth and problems with fertility. So, if you’ve started sprouting hair on your face and you’re having problems with your periods, make an appointment with a health professional as soon as possible.

Geographic Tongue

Geographic tongue is the term given to a tongue which is covered in white patches, which form unusual shapes, much like a map! It can look pretty gross, but in most cases, it is nothing to worry too much about. However, if you are experiencing other symptoms, including vomiting, weight loss, diarrhea and extreme tiredness, the symptom could be a sign of celiac disease – an autoimmune condition in which gluten can cause damage to the small intensive when consumed. This is something you definitely need to see a doctor about.

Whatever strange symptoms you have, it is always a good idea to get them checked out by a medical professional just in case.
