In this category, you will find an alphabetical list of important symptoms and complaints.

A symptom is a feature caused by an underlying disease or condition. Symptoms can be physical or mental depending on the nature of the illness. Some symptoms are mild, but others can be debilitating. Patients may experience pain, discomfort or simply a change in their body. These symptoms occur because of the way the disease affects the body.

Many patients are motivated by symptoms to seek treatment. Even with the same disease, every patient will experience symptoms differently. Doctors use symptoms as a diagnostic tool, and treatments may be directed at the disease and the uncomfortable symptoms that are experienced.
