Dr Rohit BhaskarMay 19, 2022
A desire to chew ice or to eat something salty all the time can be a sign of a deeper problem or a lack of minerals and vitamins, specialists say. That’s why it’s always a good idea to pay attention to any new developing habits, especially if they arise suddenly from out of nowhere.
We at Bhaskar Health have made a list of things your body may try to tell you in hopes to help you live a long and happy life!
1. A crawling, creeping feeling in your legs
If you have weird sensations in your legs and feet, like crawling, creeping, or the urge to move, it may be a symptom of restless leg syndrome. This disorder is long-term, and you often feel this discomfort at night when you’re trying to get some rest.
Don’t ignore skin problems or underestimate them. When the skin becomes thick and itchy, it can be a sign of many internal issues, like a hormonal disorder, eczema, or allergies. You can have some blood tests done if this problem persists or if it appears to be getting worse.
3. A change in handwriting, a loss of smell, and intense dreams
Everyone has likely heard of Parkinson’s disease but not as many of us know its symptoms. Tremors, slowness of movement, poor sleep along with nightmares, and speech and writing changes can be signs of the disease, doctors warn.
Bursts of anger may not always be a result of your personality. In fact, it could be connected to depression, some researchers say. According to them, depression isn’t always just about having a lack of energy or experiencing sadness — you can have aggressive behavior as well.
This disorder is called hypersomnia and it may stem from things that prove it isn’t just tiredness, doctors say. Some autoimmune diseases may cause the feeling of wanting to fall asleep just about anywhere. Also, having alcoholic beverages before sleeping may cause this effect.
If there’s a white or grey ring around the cornea of the eyes, it may be a sign of high cholesterol for people under 45 years old, doctors have noticed. The ring is harmless by itself and has only a visual effect.
It’s okay to like salty food but when you can’t control it anymore and salty foodbecomes the only thing you want, it’s time to ask yourself why. This can signify an iron deficiency, anemia, dehydration or premenstrual syndrome, according to medical sources.
Sometimes people confuse this with depression because it looks like you’re so tired and fed up with everything that you don’t have the energy to remember things. Doctors share that it’s better not to ignore such a condition because it can signify a thyroid hormone issue in the body. You also may gain weight and feel cold.
It’s not normal to feel thirsty all the time, specialists say. There are some cases when it can be connected to the food that you eat, so check to see if you’re eating too many spicy or salty products. The incessant thirst could also be a sign of diabetes or pregnancy.
A wish to crunch ice can be easily explained and it may be more than just a habit. An iron deficiency or anemia could be the reason for this unusual desire, some research has shown. You may want to have some blood tests taken to check and see if you need to start taking supplements.
