Normally when you get a headache, you will likely have an idea or two on what might be causing it. Symptoms such as sudden eye twitching or foot cramps, meanwhile, appear so suddenly that you don’t know what they really mean.
Standing Up Abruptly Makes You Feel Light-Headed
If you feel light headed when you stand up abruptly, you are either dehydrated (mildly) or you just experienced orthostatic hypotension. Also known as postural hypotension, orthostatic hypotension occurs when blood rushes away from your head to your feet. This is what happens when you suddenly stand up. Normally, individuals who have low blood pressure are likely to experience this.
People with low blood pressure should try to stand up slowly to avoid triggering orthostatic hypotension. Meanwhile, if you are mildly dehydrated, then drinking more fluids will help. If you feel dizzy after abruptly standing up, try sitting again or hold on to a table to help you find stability. If the symptom persists, then that is the time to see a doctor.
Painful Swelling That Sometimes Appear in Your Underarms
One of the possible reasons for this is an ingrown hair or a plugged hair follicle which can be caused by shaving. An infected swollen lymph node can also cause a painful swelling in your armpit. What you should do is to apply a warm compress on the affected area. Do this several times for a couple days and see if it helps.
If the swelling looks worse or last longer than expected, then you should definitely see a doctor since it may indicate a tumor, cyst or a breast infection.
Sometimes, the odor and color of the urine may change. Something you eat, such as an asparagus, or a new medication you are taking may have caused the change. However, foul-smelling urine can also mean you have UTI (urinary tract infection). If the change in color and smell is accompanied by frequent urination, then this may indicate UTI.
See if your urine will clear and if the smell will disappear by drinking more water. If the smell and color of the urine remains the same or if it looks cloudy, then you should send a sample of your urine to a hospital lab to know what’s really causing it. Your doctor will likely order a urinalysis to determine the underlying problem.
