Unless you are privileged in life, you must always take the first step with respect to your health and well-being. If, for whatever reason, you sense that something is out of the ordinary, do not wait too long to see if it resolves itself. In general, if this "out of the ordinary" health-related feeling exceeds 48 hours, immediately take every measure to be seen by your primary health-care provider. If you do not have a primary health-care provider, go to a health center that offers an emergency service. An ounce of prevention is worth much more than a pound of cure.
