Before contacting a doctor when a family member is ill, you should closely observe the sick person. If the situation is not an emergency, make written notes of your findings. It is too easy to overlook an important sign if you rush to call the doctor without first completely evaluating the illness. Symptoms are those complaints that the ill person relates himself, such as pain, stiffness, shortness of breath, or loss of energy. Signs of illness are those objective findings that an observer can detect, such as elevated temperature, bleeding, or rash

What are the symptoms of asthma? Dr. Farber: The classic symptoms include: wheezing, difficulty breathing, fast breathing, chest tightness, chest pain. Wheezing can sometimes cause coughing or chest tightness, or a tickle in the throat. So sometimes having an objective measurement of lung function by testing it both at home and in the physician's office is helpful so that you can tell if the breathing tubes are open or closed. Pets are part of the family. Tobacco is a powerful addiction. And asking people to get rid of Fluffy or to give up the Camels is pretty tough. And a good asthma doctor gives you a written asthma plan. Again, asthma is variable.

Dr Hilary Jones, GP and TV presenter, has a special interest in the condition and believes GPs should be as aware of vasculitis as they are of meningitis. Bacterial meningitis is very rare, yet every GP and parent is aware of it and the tumbler test where you check for the meningitis skin rash,’ he says.

Specialists introduce sarcoma centers, surgical options, systemic treatment, side effects, and more.

Before you call your doctor, you need to have some information ready to respond to your doctor's questions, and you need to know what information you want to get from the call. For example, if you feel your child needs medicine, don't wait to call until all the local drugstores are closed. In some communities, it's next to impossible to get any medicines after the pharmacies are closed. Signs and symptoms are indicators of illness, but they are not illnesses themselves. When your doctor treats your child, he or she may treat the signs and symptoms of the illness, the illness itself, or both. For example, acetaminophen is frequently given to a child with a fever; it may reduce the fever, but it doesn't affect the underlying illness causing the fever. However, an antibiotic given to your child when he has an ear infection actually helps the body fight off the infection, so it treats the illness.
