Every time I know of someone who has been to the doctor for a medical problem and after I've heard the results that the doctor gave them I turn to the web to do my own research, and I also have other docs around me that I can get info from. Now, my question about that is, do I talk to my friend about what I find, or keep my mouth shut since they usually trust their own doctor's? Also, more and more of us are started to research illnesses on the web and are being accused of self diagnosing. Is that a bad thing? Should we simply listen to what our docs tell us or should we inform ourselves and discuss what we know with our docs?
Please let me know what you think.
