13. You have dizziness accompanied by chest pain

While dizziness can actually be caused by a wide range of health issues such as vertigo, migraines, Meniere’s disease, an infection, poor blood circulation, anemia, and even dehydration, when it is accompanied by chest pain, give your doctor a ring!

It is always a medical emergency when accompanied by chest pain and, generally, it means that something’s wrong with your ol’ ticker.

14. You have foot or leg pain that gets even worse at night

Having foot or leg pain that gets even worse when you’re sleeping (or trying to) could be a symptom of a stress fracture. A stress fracture is actually a fatigue-induced bone fracture usually caused by a series of repeated stress.

In other words, a stress fracture doesn’t result from a single impact but repeated stress accumulated over time. Running and jumping are often the most common culprits. And even if it seems like no big deal, it’s best to call your doctor because a stress fracture can eventually lead to a complete break.
