Reporting Intermittent Symptoms
If Tuesday is the day when a backache always occurs, it might be a good idea to think about what is getting done on that particular day. A person might feel their back is on fire that night of the week when they go to bed. It may make them forget to schedule an appointment with their doctor when Wednesday they wake up feeling fine. Reporting intermittent symptoms is important because it can catch a medical issue while it may be easier to treat.
There could be any number of reasons why a person would have a backache on a particular day of the week. It could be the day supplies for their office are dropped off that need to be put away. The strain of that could be causing muscle pain. It might be the day they do their weekly shopping, and that could irritate a back muscle that needs attention. It may even be that they have a particular activity on Tuesdays that causes stress that can present as an issue with their back instead of on other parts of their body.
It can be easy enough to ignore temporary symptoms or pain, but it is not always a good idea. Finding out the cause is what matters when it comes to good health. The doctor may be able to suggest treatment plans for any of these conditions, but they are unable to do so if the symptoms are not reported.
Narrowing down the issue causing the temporary pain can be easy or complex. Reporting the symptoms early may be the best way to treat them before they can create more havoc within the body. Consulting the doctor may be last on a person’s list, but moving it up could make their life better once they know the real cause and proceed to treatment.
