Admit it, we’ve all Google-d something like “runny nose greenish mucus” at least once before to find out what’s wrong with our bodies. Some people want to ascertain the seriousness of their ailment before deciding whether or not to visit the doctor; others just prefer to self-diagnose and head straight to the pharmacy to save on the consultation fee.

If you’re one of those who like to consult Dr. Google about your symptoms, you’ll most probably be able to relate to these:

 

1. You don’t know where to start reading

There’s just too many links with the keywords you searched for.

 

2. Information Overload

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code” disabled=”off”]<iframe src=”https://giphy.com/embed/3o6gDSdED1B5wjC2Gc” width=”480″ height=”378″ frameBorder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed” allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=”https://giphy.com/gifs/arielle-m-star-trek-information-overload-3o6gDSdED1B5wjC2Gc”>via GIPHY</a></p>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

Too. Much. Information. To. Digest.

 

 

3. When Google tells you that you most probably have a type of chronic illness

4. You go into denial

NO. NAH AH. NOPE.

 

 

5.You start reading up more links to prove the previous one wrong

There must be an exception.

6. You start getting more confused

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

7. Feeling scared

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code” disabled=”off”]<iframe src=”https://giphy.com/embed/MFR8ycs6Ss7pm” width=”480″ height=”362″ frameBorder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed” allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=”https://giphy.com/gifs/scared-family-guy-nervous-MFR8ycs6Ss7pm”>via GIPHY</a></p>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

Because… what if?

 

 

 

8. Or feeling sad

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code” disabled=”off”]<iframe src=”https://giphy.com/embed/iKuYGz3v2xd5u” width=”480″ height=”269″ frameBorder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed” allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=”https://giphy.com/gifs/i-give-up-iKuYGz3v2xd5u”>via GIPHY</a></p>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

9. You kinda give up searching after a while

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code” disabled=”off”]<iframe src=”https://giphy.com/embed/EmB4QtACPVBpS” width=”480″ height=”195″ frameBorder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed” allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=”https://giphy.com/gifs/angry-computer-frustrated-EmB4QtACPVBpS”>via GIPHY</a></p>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

10. You just want to lie in bed and not move

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code” disabled=”off”]<iframe src=”https://giphy.com/embed/11RuG8n1SEkLqo” width=”480″ height=”208″ frameBorder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed” allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=”https://giphy.com/gifs/depressed-sick-ferris-buellers-day-off-11RuG8n1SEkLqo”>via GIPHY</a></p>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

11. Then you find out from an actual doctor that it’s just a cold

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code” disabled=”off”]<iframe src=”https://giphy.com/embed/CDJo4EgHwbaPS” width=”480″ height=”254″ frameBorder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed” allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=”https://giphy.com/gifs/CDJo4EgHwbaPS”>via GIPHY</a></p>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

But that day Google said… ok nevermind, as long as you’re fine.

As much as we would like to see Google as the keeper of all knowledge, not all of the information you find there are accurate or true. Googling your symptoms will only cause unnecessary stress as it sometimes assumes the worst and you’ll be in doubt over what to do. Always check with a doctor about your symptoms – they’re more reliable and you can have your queries addressed then and there.

I underwent Lasik surgery in Malaysia and I was able to attend follow-up consultations because I currently live in New Zealand. However, upon returning to New Zealand, I managed to consult my doctor through TeleMe’s online video consultation platform and it went smoothly. I highly recommend TeleMe’s service to everyone !

TeleMe is an excellent concept with good service! It saved me a lot of time, as I did not have to wait in the hospital to see a specialist. Thumbs up!
