Figure Out What Ails You

By July 9, 2012

Follow me on:

If you are sick and can't quite figure out what is causing your symptoms, consider taking one of our quick quizzes. We have two simple quizzes that can help you figure out if your symptoms are caused by a cold, the flu or allergies.

If the quizzes don't give you the answers you need or you don't think those illnesses are likely, take a step by step approach to your symptoms and see what could be making you sick. Each of our guides will take you through the possibilities, help you decide if you need to see your health care provider and give you options to help you feel better quickly.

These quizzes and guides can't diagnose every illness out there and they are not a replacement for professional medical advice, but they may be able to give you some peace of mind or prompt you to seek further medical attention. Pay attention to your body and your symptoms and you will go a long way towards staying healthy.
