New Members, Please read our Forum Rules before submitting your first discussion
Lately, I have been reading many new posts from new members talking about a problem they have and if they should see a doctor.
It is very important that everyone understands that there is no one on this forum site that is medically qualified to provide such an answer.
Only you as the individual understands your body. If you feel that there is something really wrong, not a muscle pull, pinched nerve, etc, then you need to decide when its time to see a doctor.
When I have read some of these threads, my first thought would be to respond to just say to wait it out a bit. Give it some time.
That can make the difference between understanding if its something minor or something that does need attention.
But I cant and will not say that, because it is up to the individual to make that decision.
So, please understand we can not tell you IF and WHEN you should see a doctor.
