18 Symptoms of Dangerous Health Conditions Hiding in Plain Sight
Most of us have had to deal with headaches that seemed to last forever, for one reason or another. In fact, according to data provided by the World Health Organization, almost half of adults have headaches every once in a while.
Given that they are so common, it’s pretty understandable that they manage to hide in plain sight even when they are caused by more dangerous health problems, such as a stroke. Headaches often go untreated but if you also experience symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, and vision problems, they could signal an imminent stroke.
