Thanks for the link to the PDF of the article. Very helpful to be able to read the actual report. I was particularly interested by the authors' example of the fact that many of those who are experiencing muscle twitching start researching amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in depth even though muscle twitching can be evidence of much less serious illnesses. The authors regard that phenomenon as not necessarily a good thing, given that ALS is such a dire condition. But I see that as a positive, given that early diagnosis of ALS is so crucial in the initiation of treatment with the one drug that sees to somewhat increase survival rates, Riluzole. I would think that is better for people to have the option of reading about depressing possibilities than to remain perplexed and frustrated.

That was sooo interesting!
Great that part about the "placebo effect", I know a number of people that the more they read about ilnesses the more they feel sick theirselves! Incredible! Google is great to find answers, it really is, but we need to remember that anyone can write on the internet, any layperson in this world. we should trust what we read and not trust it at the same time. just trying to keep it real, that's all

This is really an interesting post. Yes, there are lots of people gets anxious about their condition when they looked it up over the internet. It may give them some anxiety or fear, but this will make the doctor a hard time convincing one patient to undergo a certain procedure. On the lighter side of it, the patient becomes aware of his own condition, but not in a properly manner. Doctors are now faced with a challenge on how to manage this kind of patient.

Informed patients are in a better position to understand what is happening to them; they can handle it better and can take better care of themselves in addressing their own health problems.

I think it's true that web can cause unnecessary anxiety to a person, but at the same time people are being aware of a certain condition which will lead them to take care more of their health.

I belive that the term to place these people in are "hyprocondriacs".


If you are in uncomfortable position and have no cash to move out from that, you will need to receive the credit loans. Because it should aid you for sure. I take car loan every single year and feel myself great just because of this.

By and large, most doctors are uncomfortable with this sudden shift in patient knowledge level and the potential for second-guessing the doctor's opinion, that goes with it. New research from Microsoft suggests that the doctors may be right!

I think it's great. I have the same feeling with doctors sometimes as I do with auto mechanics. That they do know what they know what they are talking about a lot of the time, but also are very prone to make mistakes. I think a lot of medical doctors also want to go for expensive surgeries right off the bat, the same way a mechanic may want to go for a new engine.
