Alarming Signs and Symptoms

All of us have experienced some form of illness whether be it a simple fever or some rare disease. Most of us would rather rest the entire day when we have a simple fever or some mild form of infection. But, what you might think is a simple symptom is in fact a symptom of another more serious disease. These are the symptoms that you should watch out for.

When you feel that when you eat you easily get full, you might have some problems with your stomach that needs attention.
