What is the best word for pain and health problems caused by a disease?
I want to use it as term for a collection of symptoms, that I gather.
For example: [headache, stomachache, nausea]
but without a diagnosis which disease caused it
In German I use the word Beschwerden for this. I checked different online translators, which gave these options:
discomfort, afflictions, ailment, disorders, complaints and trouble.
But I think complaints is mainly used when someone is disagreeing with something, right?
By the way, when should I use the plural form?
I found these dictionary entries:
Does this mean I can still use complaints?
