Dr Dr give me the news or isn't that what Web MD is for馃檮

Do you tend to Google your symptoms or actually go to the doctor on a regular basis

I do NOT use WebMD or any similar,because its always cancer
Bad cough? Cancer
Headache? Cancer
Painful infected cut? Cancer
Pain in the belly, about to give birth? Your CHILD has cancer

@firefall that was so accurate 馃ぃ

@firefall Exactly my thoughts.. any symptoms you look for and it's cancer.
[b]That[/b] is why I never Google symptoms. They always end up sounding like bubonic plague. 馃槺
@bijouxbroussard Strangely,thats is the site where the woman who Armen Berjikly set up EP for got her first diagnosis ..later confirmed by doctors

It鈥檚 difficult to get into the doctors where I live. I go to the walk in a lot and I鈥檇 be better off with google and the ability to write my own prescriptions 馃檮

@CopperFox420 the town i live in doesn't even have a doctor.

I can do a video chat with mine so saving me going to the surgery. All my other problems are delt with by my team of doctors at the hospital
LilPrincess41-45, F
@nevergiveup sounds like you have a good team of doctors. Mine retired and the only one i ever trusted
nevergiveup61-69, M
@LilPrincess I would not be here if it was not for them

.....Omg medical tyranny flourishes on the internet and everywhere today.
LilPrincess41-45, F
@therighttothink50 that it does.

I actually used Google once for my symptoms turns out it was right and the hospital in town was wrong

It's so true: my ingrowing toenail is apparently terminal. 馃檭
LilPrincess41-45, F
@Thomas52 I am sorry for your lack of loss
I tend to google to check if it's something I SHOULD talk to my doc about.
I go to the drs, save extra illness with anxiety
I call it a consultation with Dr. Google 馃槀
Degbeme70-79, M
This was the last time I did a search ...

I don't trust WebMD.
I don't have a doctor, so I have to go to emerg or rocket doctor. I don't Google things because it's unnecessary panic
