Women's Symptoms: A Comprehensive Guide to Common Symptoms and Diseases : Their Causes and Treatme nts

Front Cover
Random House Publishing Group, Oct 7, 2009 - Health & Fitness - 544 pages
Women's Symptom's is designed  to help women understand their symptoms and decide  if consultations or investigations are warranted.  As well as a listing of both medical and  gynecological symptoms, Women's Symptom's  contains a brief section on diseases which affect  women--Anemia, Endometriosis, Ovarian Cysts, Toxic  Shock Syndrome.

Rather than give  a general description of medicine and disease, Dr.  Strausz gives detailed medical explanations, in  understandable language, so that women may  understand fully the medical problem behind their  symptoms. This guide teaches women to interpret their  symptoms using the methods and diagnosis techniques  used by the best health care professionals and,  perhaps most importantly, provides them with the  information necessary to ensure that they are receiving  medical care of the highest  quality.

Some of the symptoms listed in the guide  include:

Abdominal  pain
Arm, wrist and hand  pains
Depression
Headaches
  Urinary symptoms
