In my defense, I think I read enough Web MD to at least qualify me as a medical intern. I mean, probably.
Doctors just Google symptoms anyways…
My doctor actually recommended that I Google part of my treatment a couple of months ago. So glad I spent money on that office visit…
Except when you Google your symptoms you always find out that you actually have cancer.
My result is always cancer. No matter what the symptoms. I love WebMD, but it does not like me.
Every month, I get brutal headaches. My body gets bloated. I suffer from cramps, occasional hot flashes, spontaneous hemorrhaging and an uncontrollable desire to ferret out whoever’s to blame and sacrifice them. What’s wrong with me?
You have cancer.
Before the internet, I was crazy about my mom’s giant flow-chart book of symptoms. You could start at headache and end up ANYWHERE! It was great fun. Like a choose-your-own-disease/excuse-to-stay-home-from-school book!
Ha, that sounds amazing!
I learned most of my medical knowledge from ‘Quincy’ and ‘Diagnosis Murder’. So, inevitably, my symptoms for any ailment I had were caused by someone trying to murder me.
Haha, so a possible cause for a headache might be gunshot to the head?
You’ve got funny feet, Rae. I don’t see that problem getting better any time soon. Sorry.
It’s much easier to diagnose based on WebMD criteria, and there is no waiting involved!
I love internet self-diagnosing. I’ve had so many headaches/tumours.
Self-diagnosing using Google search results always pointed me to cancer. So never again!
Meh. Going to the doctor is overrated. Much more interesting to figure it out myself. Besides, I think my husband is getting some kinda kickback from our doc, he advises I go in for every little thing.
If you’re 2% doctor, then I’m 2% afraid of you.
I want to be 100% doctor and since I’m a Biology major, I think I’m at least 45% already. But I do Google if I’m worried about myself having some kind of fatal disease (I have high level paranoia, yup yup, and OCD) and usually I get: severe depression, severe ADHD, severe OCD and cancer. I think cancer is the only physical illness I get.

This is great 🙂
Okay, when you’re a girl the internet/google/WebMD also suggests all symptoms mean you’re pregnant. #howtotellthehubs
Oh yeah, the everything points to pregnant is a scary one too, especially since a reasonable diagnosis.
For real. I alway stare and the screen and grimace. Seriously. Not cool Web MD. #youmustreallylikeorangejuice
