Huge error in judgement on my part this week. For the last week or so I've been experiencing some numbness in my pinky on my left hand. The last few days i tried to ignore it and hope it would go away. The issue finally annoyed me enough to seek the opinion of someone in the medical field. Not a doctor. No no, i brought my issue to Web MD......
What a dumb move!
After inserting all the symptoms I'm suffering from(Sudden numbness in one finger) i hit enter to find out what could be wrong with me. I had hoped to just see something simple like a pinched nerve or even some slight carpal tunnel. Instead WebMD told me the odds were likely that i have a MILLION things wrong with me. You name it, WebMD says i probably am suffering from it. WebMD has me convinced now that a gentle breeze could take me out for good.
The moral of this story:Never self-diagnose with WebMD, the results are always so much worse then you'd expect. Call a doctor(especially if you're like me and have one in your family).
