These 12 Common Scary Symptoms That Are Usually Harmless According To Science

Why You Shouldn’t Worry About These 12 Scary Symptoms: We wants to remove any fears and paranoia for you, which is why we decided to tell you the real reasons behind symptoms that might be frightening you. Let’s have a look.

Cracking joints

Your mom probably told you that cracking your joints will cause arthritis, and you should stop doing it. Though, there is nothing harmful about doing it since it’s just air that appears in the joint and then collapses. As a result, we hear a “cracking” sound.

However, if you experience discomfort while cracking, it’s better to consult your doctor.

Dizziness after sitting

When you stand up from sitting for a long time you might experience an uncomfortable dizziness. But don’t worry, there is nothing scary in this too. Blood flows to the brain when you change your position, and it might even cause you to see stars. All you have to do is stand still for a couple of seconds and everything will go back to normal.

Muscle twitching

Everyone knows what muscle twitching is. It feels scary and weird, but it doesn’t mean ALS, since most of the time this symptom is harmless. There are several reasons why you might experience muscle twitching, and among them are: you might have overextended your muscles, you feel anxious, or you didn’t drink enough water.


Despite popular beliefs, cramping is not always caused by multiple sclerosis. The most common reason for it is dehydration. When your body experiences a lack of water, muscles will sporadically tighten up, giving you a signal that you don’t drink enough. If cramping happens too often, it’s better to consult your doctor, but if it happens every now and then, then it’s nothing to worry about.


Anyone who experiences shakiness has probably questioned whether it’s Parkinson disease? Well, not always. Many people can experience shakiness when they haven’t eaten properly or for a long time. Some other reasons include overstressing, or an iodine and vitamin B12 deficiency.

Chest pain

The first thing that probably comes to mind when we experience chest pain is that it’s a heart attack. Luckily, for younger people who don’t have any cardiac risks (like diabetes, for example), it’s nothing scary. Heartburn, stress, anxiety, and straining your chest muscles the wrong way during exercising can also cause chest pain. Though, if the pain doesn’t stop, it’s better to contact your doctor.
