I actually posted one about a tooth, and have also about cortisone injections, and plantar fascitis. I think knowledge is power and I personally learn from other people through their experiences. My best friend is a pharmacist and she tells me about new allergy meds, then I ask the doctor about them. I don't see no harm in questions.... I personally have never read one where someone is writing about chest pains and should they go to doctor. I think common sense is if it were real bad most of us are adults on here and I would hope they would know to dial 911 and not DIS boards. With that being said, I still stand by KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, SHARING experiences, just enriches your own wisdom.... Happy Health to all!!!! P.S----I call my friend for advice why wouldn't I reach out here, kindness, support can be found in wide variety of places. SOme people might be new to a community, have hectic family lives, or are to busy in their careers to call a friend. This is second best and I know myself, I have gotten some great advice on here..
