Eye floaters, skin tags, dizziness, or unexplained chest pain… As soon as this happens, we rush to consult Google, and end up finding hair-raising explanations to the smallest changes in our body. Well, Google isn’t always right, and something that seems scary can turn out to be completely harmless.
The Bright Side team wants to remove any fears and paranoia for you, which is why we decided to tell you the real reasons behind symptoms that might be frightening you. Let’s have a look.
The first thing that probably comes to mind when we experience chest pain is that it’s a heart attack. Luckily, for younger people who don’t have any cardiac risks (like diabetes, for example), it’s nothing scary.
Heartburn, stress, anxiety, and straining your chest muscles the wrong way during exercising can also cause chest pain. Though, if the pain doesn’t stop, it’s better to contact your doctor.
Lumps and skin tags
Skin tags are common for many people, but like many other skin growths, they are not caused by cancer. Skin tags can be found around the neck, armpits, and even the eyes, and they commonly occur on dry skin. Though they might look ugly, they are completely harmless. The best thing to do is to consult your dermatologist to find a way to get rid of them safely.
