Symptoms are the mental or physical characteristics of a condition or illness which are subjective and discernable by the patient. Every condition has symptoms by which it can be identified. Because symptoms are often nonspecific, however, narrowing down the correct diagnosis can be difficult. Ideally, a patient will work with medical practitioners to review all their symptoms and correctly identify the condition.
