It turns out that fatigue can be a sign of problems with the liver, and irritable bowel syndrome often speaks of celiac disease. Recently, American scientists have proved that approximately one in every third patient with asthma does not really have this disease, because doctors incorrectly put a diagnosis. Alas, these mistakes are made not only with asthmatics.
For example, a significant number of victims of clinical depression in fact suffer from the hypothyroidism - a condition in which the body does not produce enough hormone of thyroxine to support the work of various systems in our body.
Lack of this hormone may cause a depression, drowsiness and even a feeling of constant cold. By the way, dementia in the first stages is also often mistaken for depression.
Irritable bowel syndrome Irritable bowel syndrome is accompanied by symptoms such as bloating, chronic diarrhea, or abdominal pain, which have no apparent cause. However, all these signs are also symptoms of celiac disease - the immune response of the body to gluten. It is a protein found in wheat, oats, rice and barley.
Signs of ovarian cancer Problems with periods, hot flashes, bloating, weight gain and mood jumps - all these seem to be classic symptoms of menopause. But sometimes they are also signs of ovarian cancer, excessively active thyroid gland or even lymphatic leukemia - cancer of the lymphatic system, blood vessels and glands. It is constantly accompanied by intense night sweats.
Hepatitis C, Lyme disease, cancer... Great is the list of diseases that are mistaken for ordinary fatigue. Among them, cancer, Lyme disease, spread by mites, and liver diseases like hepatitis C. Very often the victims of this disease do not know anything about it until their liver is destroyed and strong jaundice develops on the skin.
