Round Two – Google At Your Own Risk

I became a bit anti-doctor after my latest foray into the world of medicine. Especially the next to impossible task of diagnosing and treating something that wasn’t overtly visible to the naked eye. If I had a broken bone or a tumor, I would have been diagnosed and treated without issue. To explain to a complete stranger, in a limited amount of time, sometimes breaking into tears from frustration and chronic pain was difficult to say the least. I decided to embark on my own journey to diagnose myself. I listed my symptoms on various websites which all came back with different suggestions and recommendations. So many diseases, syndromes, conditions: Lupus, Churg-Strauss, brain tumor, meningitis, aneurysm, etc. Needless to say, I threw myself right into a panic attack. After calming down, I realized self-diagnosis may not be the best way to go. No more Googling for awhile.
