1. You see floaters
Almost all of us experience floaters from time to time, and although in most cases there’s no reason to concern, seeing spots in your vision could actually be a sign of a really big vision problem such as an inflammation in the eyes, retinal detachment, or a retinal tear.
An assistant professor of clinical optometry at the Ohio State University College of Optometry, JP Maszczak, OD, says that both retinal detachments and tears can result in permanent vision loss if not treated immediately. Bear in mind that most floaters occur due to age.
2. You have a high fever that won’t go away
If you have a high fever that doesn’t go away, it’s best to call your doctor. According to a primary care physician at Baltimore’s Mercy Medical Center, Ayesha Cheema, MD, persistent fever can have many root causes, including pneumonia and bacterial infection.
Call your doctor as soon as possible if it doesn’t want to go away even after taking an OTC fever reducer. Plus, if it’s also accompanied by other symptoms such as vomiting, coughing, nausea, or a headache, do not hesitate! All of these warrant a visit to your doctor.
