    Surely the banner of 'hyperchondriac' is enough? ... I hate you Microsoft...

    Surely that should be hypochondriac.

    I'd actually be quite happy entering in my symptoms, answering question trees, etc. and getting some possible diagnosises. This year I got sick in late June and had reoccurring symptoms through October, seems to have gone away for most of November and is starting to come back the last few days again. I've seen 7 doctors (including 2 specialists), dozens of blood samples yielding around 60-70 tests, CT scans, xrays, etc.The best they can tell me is that I'm in great health... yet I still have this mystery illness. It really annoys me at how useless our (US) medical system seems to be. I've done much better at finding possible causes than any of the doctors have. I would welcome a system that allows me to anonymously generate self diagnosises that I could then discuss with a doctor.
