Why do people ask for medical advice online?? And it never seems to be just a request for a good doc or something innocuous. It always seems to be an emergency:
"Hey, my arm has been kinda gray and numb ever since it got ran over by a car, what should I do?"
"My dog ate a dark chocolate replica of the Eiffel Tower, will he be okay?"
"Ever since I hit my head, I black out. Should I be concerned?" (
"I've had this weird rash for 3 weeks, what do you think it is?" (This one someone asked me without even sharing a photo. Do you have ANY idea how many things could possibly go wrong with skin? I didn't, until a series of Google inquiries simultaneously revealed the futility of guesswork and the necessity of medical school.)
I realize people hate doctors but usually if you need to ask, something is wrong!
What kinds of Facebook statuses do you hate?
