Our body is a wonderful machine that tells almost everything it needs or feels. Pay attention to small signs and indications it gives regarding what it needs. Paying attention to signs and symptoms can help you detect some deadly diseases in their early stages where they can be controlled with ease, ignoring them can make these diseases fatal. Here are 5 things your body may be telling you in its own unique way.

1. Leg cramps

If you are getting frequent, severe leg cramps that are not letting you sleep at night it can be an indication of electrolyte imbalance generally caused by dehydration. Wearing high heels or uncomfortable shoes might also be responsible, its worth discussing with your doctor. A diet rich in electrolytes like calcium, potassium, and magnesium can help avoid cramps.

2. Hiccups

If you have frequent hiccups that are hard to get rid of it may be an indication of central nervous system disorder. Hiccups happen when the muscle that separates chest from abdomen contracts suddenly leading to abrupt closure of vocal cords. Hiccups also indicate disorders like nervousness and anxiety. If hiccups last for more than 2 days call your doctor. Staying hydrated, proper exercise, and healthy breathing habits are some remedies to avoid hiccups. Hiccups can also be a sign of too much food or fluid consumption.
