The human body is a masterpiece of evolution. All the internal organs work in harmony to keep our bodies in top shape. While almost all of our bodily functions are resolved without us even knowing, there can be times our internals might need us to intervene. In such instants our bodies are designed to notify us using various means and, if ignored, they can lead to some serious health issues.
