  • I've been doing it all day. I think I can rule out pancreatitis, intestinal blockage, colon cancer, liver cancer, intestinal strangulation, ovarian cancer, appendicitis with what ails me. I now think I have a touch of a food borne illness because I had to eat nasty ass chick fil a. Nobody else in my family is sick. I just want to be squeezed and have this bloat hiss out of me.

  • No, but my co-worker does. Literally at least twice a week, he comes in to my office to tell me that he has such and such because he has all of the symptoms according to the Internet.

  • If I have symptoms I sometimes look on the Internet to see what the problem might be and how to fix it. :)

  • No, but it's a dangerous condition. My bp dropped really low one night from the meds I was on, DH freaked out and started googling, decided I had low blood sugar, and made me eat cake. Didn't help, then I was tired, dizzy, not making much sense and nauseated from eating all that frosting.

  • I've looked up symptoms on the Internet, such as when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and asked my doctor about the possibilities. There's a fine line between doing research to help you deal with your doctor and self-diagnosing, I guess.

  • That is almost always bad. There was only one time ever that researching online made me feel better about things. I had one boob that was super sore and I felt a knot. I immediately decided I was dying of breast cancer and went online to confirm. I was surprised to find out that I was not dying, that breast cancer doesn't generally hurt or feel smooth. And then I went shopping.
    Every other time, I felt a little shitty and the internet decided I was dying.
