Re: Ranting corner
WebMD and other sites are crap for self-diagnosis. For giggles I put my migraine symptoms in. Most sites say the most likely reason is a brain tumor. And I have gotten scans and there are no tumors.

Put in a sprained ankle and it will probably say you have leprosy.

Can't say I've ever heard of stress causing hallucinations, memory loss and nose bleeds...

I'd good it, but we all know it'd come up as cancer... Or maybe a stroke.

Ha! WebMD will convince anyone they've got cancer. Can't tell you how many times a patient has said "well webmd says..." Facepalm

Nose bleeds are common this time of year - although that's in the southeast US. Not sure about Ato's region. And he's probably right about it being stress.

Severe stress causing high anxiety can cause hallucinations and memory loss (psychosis). Definitely need to get that checked out. Maybe it's just generalized anxiety disorder with psychosis, maybe it's something more nefarious. If it's the anxiety - a Xanax prescription will make your world much more peaceful. I could probably use it myself....Consider

Nosebleed when you've had sinus issues the past few weeks or the air has been really dry - no big deal. Nosebleed with random bruising and/or night sweats and fevers - that needs to be checked out as soon as possible.

You people mean to tell me I might not be suffering kidney failure because I piss every few 10 or so minutes?!

That is the next best guess.

With a name like that that kid is almost guaranteed to be a nut when it grows up.
