Chronic illness can creep up on you when you are least looking, or you may have an event that occurs that then identifies that you have a condition. We all want to be mindful of what to be aware of, without getting paranoid to try and detect these things early! Sometimes, as you will see, some of these early symptoms can be vague and across illnesses, so it’s important to know your own body, and trust your intuition that something is not right. If you need to get a second opinion, sometimes that is needed.
