Looking for a hidden cause is well worthwhile in the case of the symptoms listed below
- Joint pain of unknown origin
- Patchy hair loss
- Pimples, eczema
- Inflammation of various layers of the eye (sclera, iris, conjunctiva)
- Allergy symptoms
- Long standing disorders of various organs, or organ systems, of unknown origin
- Sleep disorder
In most cases, the hidden cause is without symptoms, not painful, not sensitive and is located in a part of the body other than that of the symptoms. This makes finding the hidden cause quite difficult. Since the inflammation can be drawn out, we often do not think of an abnormality in a given site.
