Dr. Oz's 7 Signs You're Aging Too Fast
Cotton mouth in the morning may be a sign of sleep apnea, a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. To figure out if you have it, determine your "snore score" by answering the following questions. For every "yes" answer, give yourself a point:
- Do you snore?
- Do you wake up groggy or with a headache?
- Do you feel constantly tired or fatigued during the day?
- Do you fall asleep reading, watching TV, or driving?
- Do you have problems with memory or concentration?
Inflamed eyes could be a sign of arthritis, the painful inflammation and stiffening of joints. The same cellular process that causes inflammation in your joints can cause inflammation in your eyes, turning them red.
Studies have shown that the sooner you treat arthritis, the better the long-term results, so visit your doctor at the first sign of trouble. To help stave off or relieve arthritis, try taking feverfew, a plant with a long history of use in traditional and folk medicine. Available at health food stores, feverfew has great anti-inflammatory properties; take 1 to 2 capsules per day.
