Weird Symptoms: The Part of Aging No One Warns Us About.

Updated: Oct 20, 2022


Although we operate in the space of beauty and skincare at Mondiah Essentials, we also consider ourselves a health and wellness company. Understanding that what we put on our body is just as important as any other act of self-care, is just one of the ways we promote awareness of opportunities to take care of yourself and loved ones.


Speaking of awareness, how many of us have awaken one day to notice a weird sensation in your body that wasn't there before and it seems to be no obvious reason for it? The symptoms can consist of numbness, twitching, pain, tingling, burning sensation, feeling of pins and needles, cramps, stomach problems, soreness, headaches, skin crawling, ears ringing, weakness, headaches, tension, blurry vision, or even just a general sense of anxiety that you've never felt before. The list goes on, but I'm here to tell you what I had to find out on my own: You're not alone. In fact, it's very common. That being said, it is highly important that you first seek the care and advice of your medical professional to rule out any illness or serious conditions.


Now, let's get into the confusion you may be left with if you happen to get a thumbs up from your healthcare provider's examination with no real direction about why you're experiencing the symptoms you have. A solid physician may inquire or suggest that stress is the culprit (and for good reason, of course.) Various unexplained symptoms manifest in the body as a result of chronic stress. Cortisol is a stress hormone that affects many bodily functions when released. It affects your nervous system by adjusting your heart rate, blood flow, blood pressure, focus, alters the digestive system, metabolism, etc. In states of chronic stress and constant release of this hormone, many systems can start to get off balance including the immune system. This can contribute to being prone to colds, infection, and in extreme cases autoimmune dysfunction. Checking in with yourself and seeking care mentally is highly important for your overall health and well being. Maintaining an understanding that your mental, emotional, nutritional state, and more impact you physically has become a topic also known as the Mind-Body Connection and this article can give you more insight to it.


Moving on to diet! Yep, many symptoms that seem to have a random onset originate in the body not so randomly. A constant state of nutrient deficiency causes many systems in the body to become off balance and produce symptoms. Magnesium deficiency can cause muscle spasms and tension, heart palpitations, trembling, or pins and needles sensations. Lacking in Vitamin D shows up as muscle pain, hair loss, fatigue, depression, weakness, and more. Iron deficiency contributes to anemia resulting in fatigue, shortness of breath, cracked corners of the mouth, chest pain, palpitations, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Low Vitamin B tends to show up as pale skin, fatigue, cramps, tingling in the hands and feet, brain fog, blurred vision, weakness, and more. A diet rich in vitamins and minerals paired with naturally sourced supplements can get you on the fast track to feeling like your usual self again.


Sometimes various sensory symptoms could be structural issues such as the impingement of nerves by the spine or muscle tension. Anxiety, itself, can cause many odd symptoms in the body and, inversely, the fear of random symptoms contributes to anxiety. This creates a vicious cycle. The one thing all of these potential causes have in common is that they are all a part of the aging process and everyone goes through changes to their physicality that aren't convenient or comfortable. Understanding that can help mitigate some of the worry that accompanies unexplainable symptoms. Holistic practices are becoming more mainstream and attention is being brought to the mind-body approach to wellness. Simply becoming aware of the state of your whole being paired with making a few lifestyle adjustments can drastically improve the experience of maturing. Tell us what weird symptoms made their debut in your life and how you have managed them. We'd love to know.
