Swelling is usually a sign of excess fluid buildup or inflammation in the body. Swelling may be widespread or localized to a particular area of the body.
Joint pain can occur with or without movement and can be described as inflammation, increased warmth or burning, soreness, stiffness, or achiness.
Unusual sensations such as tingling, burning, or "pins-and-needles" type pain are called paresthesias. Paresthesia is an abnormal condition in which you feel a sensation of burning, numbness, tingling, itching or prickling.
Skin rashes vary greatly in appearance, extent and severity. Rashes can be red, white, purple or silver in color, and raised, bumpy or flat in texture. They can also include scaling or flaking off of skin cells.
A persistent cough is a symptom of a wide variety of mild to serious diseases, disorders and conditions including infection, inflammation, trauma, malignancy, airway obstruction, and other abnormal processes.
Most cases of diarrhea last just a day or two and need no treatment. But diarrhea that is associated with bloody stool, rectal bleeding,blood, dizziness, fainting, or severe pain requires urgent evaluation.
