How often do you use the Internet to look up information related to your health?



  • Often and I never confirm the information with my doctor.
  • Often but I still confirm the information with my doctor.

Too much knowledge is not always a good thing :)

If I want to be sure to scare the crap out of myself and verify that coma, seizures and death are always a possibility for every med I take for every problem I have, the internet works. ;)

I really try not to for most things. I've learned it's better for me to make sure I only see DRs who listen to me, answer my questions, are available and don't dismiss me.

I sometimes do look up information. I agree that it can sometimes be TMI, though, and could be very scary. I do check with my doctor about what I find.


I look up information about conditions or problems that my family or friends have, too. I generally don't share it with them, just look it up for my own information.

I look up information often but always discuss what I've found with my Dr. :)
