What are signs or symptoms?
Sign: Is something that you can see (for example, dilated pupils or bleeding). Symptom: Something a person feels (for example: nausea or headache). Note: I assume you means signs and symptoms in first aid terms so that is why I gave those answers lol.

Some heart attacks are sudden and intense. Most heart attacks start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often people affected aren't sure what's wrong and wait too long befo…re getting help. Women are less likely to know they are having a heart attack simply because they go through so many different aches and pains throughout their lifetime and they do not always get the same symptoms as men can. Symptoms of a heart attack can inlclude: . Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain . Rapid, weak pulse. . Cyanosis (blue colour around the face and lips). . Collapse without warning. . Chest discomfort or pain that may be crushing or squeezing or may feel like a heavy weight on the chest, especially on the left side . Sweating. . Shortness of breath. . Nausea or vomiting. . Pain that spreads from the chest to the neck, the jaw, stomach, or one or both shoulders or arms, especially the left . Dizziness or lightheadedness. . A fast or irregular heartbeat. . Loss of consciousness. . Excessive sweating . Heartburn or abdominal pain. . Anxiety, nervousness and/or cold sweaty skin. . Skin that is clammy. . Pale skin. . Unexplainable fatigue. Some heart attacks are 'silent attacks,' or attacks where the victim experiences no symptoms at all. If you think you're having a heart attack, call 9-1-1 or your emergency medical system immediately.
Asperger's Syndrome (AS) has many characteristics in common with autism and is thus viewed as a variant of it. It is a neurological condition. If a person has an IQ under 70, …it is typically labeled as autism. If a person has average or above average IQ, it is typically labeled as AS. Asperger's Syndrome is also known as high-functioning autism, although there is some disagreement about whether they truly are the same. Some people describe AS as a mild version of autism, but actually it is just as severe. (The conditions are similar but have differences, and both autism and AS can range from mild to severe.) One difference is that the people with Asperger's Syndrome have better language abilities and typically have higher intelligence; thus, they might be more able to compensate to function in society. Here is a list of some of the possible signs or symptoms in those who have AS (many of which are also common to autism), compiled from several sources. No person with AS has all these traits, and they do not have them at the same levels. Some traits are opposites, but stem from the same underlying issue. Although neuro-typical people (ones without an autism spectrum disorder) might experience some of these characteristics, the problems are usually tenfold to a hundredfold worse for the person with AS or autism. These characteristics are based on observation of males with AS; it is thought that females could exhibit AS in different ways because they might react to the same difficulty in a different manner. In adults, some of these traits only occur in specific situations or when under stress. Compensating for some traits and learning ways to do some things can be accomplished with explicit instructions. Some of these characteristics usually occur only in children because adults have learned to compensate through trial and error or observation of other people. Some of these characteristics are comparisons to the development of neuro-typical children.

resulting in an amygdala that appears the same as the amygdala in children who were subjected to physical abuse, sexual abuse, or neglect; a person with a "damaged" amygdala might sense danger when there is none - researchers believe that children with autism related disorders suffer chronic stress from fear of people that results in the atypical development of the amygdala Child development: - larger than normal head circumference is common Other characteristics - often only minimally affected by peer pressure, so does what is comfortable for him or her; or, tries to fit in by doing anything peers suggest without realizing peers' true intentions - has an aversion to being interrupted; compulsion for completion - is often very spiritual, but not necessarily religious - is a perfectionist - has an impaired fight or flight response - possibly because fight or flight is already activate in almost all situations;

An allergy reaction is a response from the innate immune response system. It can manifest in several forms. A reaction that is most common on the skin is redness. This is due …to the flow of blood near the skins surface at the site of the reaction, such as a bee sting. A second symptom occurring from blood flow is heat. The reaction site will become warm to the touch. A third symptom is swelling at the reaction site. This occurs due to the increase of blood flow, particularly the blood plasma, the straw-colored part of blood that contains the immune components that destroy foreign material. Itching may also be a symptom at the reaction site from the nerves in the skin. Small red bumps may also occur at the site. In other cases, allergic reactions may manifest as nasal drip, nasal inflammation, and in more severe reactions anaphylactic shock in which the respiratory system becomes paralyzed/swollen in which labored breathing, dizziness, unconsciousness, or death may occur.
The symptoms of teen pregnancy will be the same as for adult pregnancy. You're symptoms of pregnancy include: missed period, fatigue, swollen and or tender breasts, mood swing…s, flu like symptoms, nausea, implantation bleeding (slightly different than a period) etc. Not all women will experience pregnancy symptoms so if you do suspect you might be pregnant, you should take a test rather than relying solely on symptoms. Not all women will experience a missed period during the first few weeks of pregnancy, so again, it is important to use other determinations of pregnancy other than symptoms. It is important for you to confirm your pregnancy as soon as possible to ensure the proper care and safety of you and your new baby. Most of these symptoms will start about two weeks after the first day of your missed period. Here is a link to a website that will calculate the probability of your pregnancy: http://www.thepregnancytest.com/

An easy method to remember the symptoms is FAST; acronym for: . F ace drooping (ask the person to smile. If the smile is only on one side of the face? - that's your sign!) … A rm/leg weakness (if the answer to previous is yes, the opposite limbs can be weak or unresponsive. Ask the person to hold both arms straight forward - 90 degrees to the body and hold them in that position while closing their eyes. If one arm drops, that's your sign!) S lurred or difficult speech (the person slurs in speech, talks nonsense, repeats sentences again and again for no apparent reason. Ask for his/her name, day of the week, where he/she is. Disoriented answers may indicate a stroke) T ime to go to the hospital! . Warning! These symptoms can also be found with a diabetic in a hypoglycemic episode. If possible, check blood for sugar levels. All this person might need can be a sweet drink to be revived. In any case of either stroke or hypoglycemic episode, the person must see a doctor as soon as possible.
