Secondary Conditions aka Symptoms can range from neck pain, back pain, numbness and tingling throughout the body, to more neurological conditions such as fibromyalgia, post concussion syndrome, vertigo, tinnitus, trigeminal neuralgia, and migraines headaches.
We live in a society where the predominant thinking seems to be that an absence of pain equals health. But is that really the case? What is the first symptom of a heart attack? Of course, in most cases it's an actual heart attack. What about most cancers? Do you feel pain right away? No, a lot of times the pain doesn't show up till the disease process is in the end stage.
Many times the way we tend to see symptoms is to try to get rid of them as quick as possible whether it would be by prescriptive medications or by rubbing an ointment. This is understandable as pain is not a fun thing to deal with. But could it be that symptoms are pointing to something else that has been going on in the body? Merely, taking medications is the equivalent of your check engine light going on and putting duct tape over it.
