Illnesses

Instructions: Read the next situations and pay attention
to the words in red.

Good morning
doctor!, I have a
terrible back
pain.

Let me see. It may
be indicative of a
back strain or
Probably your spinal
could be damaged
cause a big effort.

Yesterday I
started with
vomiting and
indigestion I feel
so terrible, doctor.

I feel so bad. I
have a terrible
abdominal pain.

It may be
indicative of lack
of enzymes and
such as HCL (
hydrochloric
acid)

Probably, you have
appendicitis or It
could be food
poisoning. What did
you eat yesterday?

Illnesses and Symptoms
Illnesses

Signs and Symptoms

Appendicitis

Pain first, vomiting next and fever last has been described as the classic
presentation of acute appendicitis. Pain starts mid-abdomen, and except in
children below 3 years, tends to localize in the right iliac fossa in a few
hours. This pain can be elicited through various signs and can be severe.
Signs include localized findings in the right iliac fossa. The abdominal wall
becomes very sensitive to gentle pressure (palpation). Also, there is severe
pain on sudden release of deep pressure in the lower abdomen (rebound
tenderness). In case of a retrocecal appendix, however, even deep pressure
in the right lower quadrant may fail to elicit tenderness (silent appendix), the
reason being that the cecum, distended with gas, prevents the pressure
exerted by the palpating hand from reaching the inflamed appendix.
Similarly, if the appendix lies entirely within the pelvis, there is usually
complete absence of abdominal rigidity. In such cases, a digital rectal
examination elicits tenderness in the rectovesical pouch. Coughing causes
point tenderness in this area and this is the least painful way to localize the
inflamed appendix. If the abdomen on palpation is also involuntarily
guarded (rigid), there should be a strong suspicion of peritonitis, requiring
urgent surgical intervention.

Illnesses

Signs and Symptoms

Food Allergies

Classic immunoglobulin-E -mediated food allergies are classified as type-I
immediate Hypersensitivity reaction. These allergic reactions have an acute
onset (from seconds to one hour) and may include: Hives, Itching of mouth, lips,
tongue, throat, eyes, skin, or else areas, Swelling (angioedema) of lips, tongue,
eyelids, or the whole face, Difficulty swallowing, Runny or congested nose,
Hoarse voice, Wheezing and/or shortness of breath, Nausea, Vomiting,
Abdominal pain and/or stomach cramps, Lightheadedness, Fainting, Symptoms
of allergies vary from person to person. The amount of food needed to trigger
a reaction also varies from person to person.

Pneumonia

People with infectious pneumonia often have a productive cough, fever
accompanied by shaking chills, shortness of breath, sharp or stabbing chest
pain during deep breaths, confusion, and an increased respiratory rate. In the
elderly, confusion may be the most prominent symptom. The typical symptoms in
children under five are fever, cough, and fast or difficult breathing. Fever,
however, is not very specific, as it occurs in many other common illnesses, and
may be absent in those with severe disease or malnutrition. In addition, a cough
is frequently absent in children less than 2 months old. More severe symptoms
may include: central cyanosis, decreased thirst, convulsions, persistent vomiting,
or a decreased level of consciousness.

Classic immunoglobulin-E -mediated food allergies are classified as type-I
immediate Hypersensitivity reaction. These allergic reactions have an acute
onset (from seconds to one hour) and may include: Hives, Itching of mouth, lips,
tongue, throat, eyes, skin, or else areas, Swelling (angioedema) of lips, tongue,
eyelids, or the whole face, Difficulty swallowing, Runny or congested nose,
Hoarse voice, Wheezing and/or shortness of breath, Nausea, Vomiting,
Abdominal pain and/or stomach cramps, Lightheadedness, Fainting, Symptoms
of allergies vary from person to person. The amount of food needed to trigger
a reaction also varies from person to person.

Pneumonia

People with infectious pneumonia often have a productive cough, fever
accompanied by shaking chills, shortness of breath, sharp or stabbing chest
pain during deep breaths, confusion, and an increased respiratory rate. In the
elderly, confusion may be the most prominent symptom. The typical symptoms in
children under five are fever, cough, and fast or difficult breathing. Fever,
however, is not very specific, as it occurs in many other common illnesses, and
may be absent in those with severe disease or malnutrition. In addition, a cough
is frequently absent in children less than 2 months old. More severe symptoms
may include: central cyanosis, decreased thirst, convulsions, persistent vomiting,
or a decreased level of consciousness.
