What's My Problem and Medicine On The Web

The web offers so much health information that soon you’ll need a degree in IT instead of a medical degree to become a doctor.

This morning I woke up with a headache and I was able to get a diagnosis in no time.

Symptom:

Headache

Diagnosis:
  • Allergies, or
  • Sinus problem, or
  • Stress, or
  • Incorrect room temperature, or
  • Substance withdrawal, or
  • Brain Tumor

I do have allergies actually, and sometimes a sinus problem. Could be that.

I don’t think I’m suffering from stress, but I could be and just don’t know it.  This worries me.

The room temperature seems fine, although now I’m getting stressed that this might be causing a sinus problem and allergies…..

I know I didn’t drink last night so I can definitely rule that one out! Maybe I need a drink now.

Brain tumor…..I hadn’t thought of that. Now I’m really getting stressed because this seems most  likely. I took an antihistamine to rule out allergies and....

Never mind! My headache is gone. Guess I just needed to eat something.

See? It’s great. Now I’m going to check other diseases I might have, just in case. I know my doctor will be thrilled I’ve done half the work for her.
