Our expert says:
I think that the idea is to realise what the purpose of a forum such as this is. It is basically a site where people can obtain more information on problems. It is not a consulting service and it does not replace seeking medical attention. The questions asked are very brief summaries compared to the full assessment you haev when seeing a doctor. Therefore there are two different functions. The function of the forum is to provide basic advice, clarify some issues that may be hard to understand and to point people in the right direction. It cannot be used as an emergency service and any urgent or serious problems should be seen by a doctor.
The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal
