    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".
