From time to time, threads are started here describing symptoms and requesting help with a diagnosis of a physical/mental disorder. Please note that such disorders are complex, constellations of symptoms may overlap among several disorders, and accurate diagnoses require a thorough, in-person evaluation with a qualified, licensed, medical professional.

We are NOT qualified to offer diagnoses of any illness on this site, and any advice provided here is NOT a substitute for evaluation by a physician. In all cases our answer to these types of questions would be "Go see your doctor".

The scope of the Medical Sciences forum is to discuss the science behind clinical and human health topics.

It should be very clear that we do not provide medical diagnosis here. If you are concerned about your health, always consult with a doctor.

The topics that are appropriate for this forum are questions pertaining to the biological basis of disease, the science behind pharmaceuticals and the scientific research into these subjects. In-depth information can be found in research articles made available through Pubmed.
