There are many conditions that you may not know you have. This can be very worrying, and it’s common that people will live with conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, even certain types of cancer, and many people can have STDs for years and not know they are sick. Here are a few others you should be aware of:

Celiac Disease

While gluten-free diets are growing more common among people without celiac disease, many people do have it without knowing it. If you are suffering from fatigue, joint pain, migraines, or depressive symptoms and you eat a lot of gluten you could be suffering, however, no two cases of celiac disease are the same and there are over two hundred possible symptoms in adults. If left untreated, it will harm your gut.


Type 2 diabetes, which is the type you develop, not the one you’re born with — causes problems with blood sugar regulation. Some of the most apparent diabetes symptoms involve feeling tired, thirsty, and experiencing an increased appetite. However, exhaustion, thirst, and hunger aren’t all that uncommon in daily life, so it’s difficult to rely on these symptoms to infer you have diabetes.

Brain Injury

While you’ll probably know if you’ve hit your head, you may be symptom-free after an accident, only to discover significant head trauma after a few weeks or a few months and symptoms can vary widely between individuals. According to traumatic brain injury lawyers, the most common symptoms of brain injuries include confusion, blurred version, personality changes, irritability, forgetfulness.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea happens once the muscles in your throat relax while you are asleep.

This prompts your brain to wake you up however you don’t always notice.

It’s hard to make a note of symptoms that are prominent only when you’re asleep, which is why many people don’t know they have this problem. It is often common in people that drink or smoke, and in those who are overweight or obese.

Lyme Disease

Even though it’s rare, you can contract Lyme disease from a single tick bite. Early on, the symptoms of Lyme disease look very much like the flu and - you may get chills, a fever, or feel tired and if you’ve had the flu before which is very likely, then you will probaly just assume that fluids and rest will have you back in action in no time — instead of seeing a doctor

for treatment.


Osteoporosis occurs due to bone density loss, but this doesn’t come with any signs or symptoms, and the condition is responsible for over two million broken bones every year. Though some people lose height and posture as a result of osteoporosis, it sometimes takes years — or a bone fracture — to notice anything’s amiss.


Though it’s the most common STD, most people who have chlamydia are clueless.

It doesn’t have symptoms — its infection will hide in your vagina, cervix, urethra, rectum, or even your throat without you knowing. In post-menopausal women, its worst possible consequences are long-term pelvic pain, which is treatable. It is important to get tested if you’re sexually active whether or not you think you have got an STD or not.
