I feel like the only insane person for being sane.

My girlfriend, her parent, and her entire family are 100% convinced that one of her parents has an incurable terminal disease. The catch? None of the test results have come back. In fact, none of the tests have even been done. [more inside]

When is it appropriate to ask about someone's health?

A friend of mine (let's call her "Sarah") came over for dinner at my flat last week. Some way through the meal (just after the first bottle of wine was finished) she told us that her partner had recently been tested for a very serious medical condition. She then said that she "hadn't intended to talk about it". She will have recently received the results of this test, and I'm wondering whether it's appropriate to ask her what the result of the test was. I care a lot about Sarah and her partner (who is an incredibly warm and wonderful person), but I don't want to intrude. On the other hand, I don't want to be unsupportive. A few details are below the fold. [more inside]

Numbness in hands and face, headaches, fatigue: what is this?

Hi, MeFi. I've had a medical condition for the past month which involves numbness in my hands and face, headaches, fatigue, emotional distress, and other unpleasant symptoms. I know YANMD, and I am in fact already seeing a doctor and will soon be seeing a neurologist. I'm sorry about the wall of text, but if any of this sounds familiar, please let me know -- it would really help when talking to my doctors! [more inside]

I remember when I lost my mind

My health, both physical and mental has been on a roller coaster over the past 3 months. I have undergone many tests and the doctors have said, quantitatively, I am the picture of health; therefore the very real physical symptoms I am experiencing must be due to anxiety. I am open to that possibility, but need more convincing... [more inside]

"Mr Burns, you have every disease there is!" "So I can't get worse, I'm invincible!"

Can you help narrow down what sort(s) of doctor(s) to see and what to investigate, given these symptoms? All symptoms have cropped up within the last two years. Before that, I felt healthy most of the time. Primary care doc has been little help, and most of the specialists seem to focus only on the symptoms within their own areas of expertise. [more inside]

things they don't teach you in school

I’m about to undergo some pretty major role changes in my life, and I’m not sure I have the tools and tricks to deal with those changes. I need strategies / diversions / projects that will help me become a better caregiver for my little sister, who is faced with a dire medical prognosis, while at the same time trying to retain my own identity in this crisis. Folks who have become caregivers to loved ones at the expense of other important things in their life, this question is for you. [more inside]

Found the "bullseye", now what?

After a week of what was diagnosed as some form of Viral Syndrome Meningitis, I just found a big target-shaped rash on the back of my leg. Looks just like the pictures. This started on Sunday of Labor Day weekend after camping. Now that I'm pretty sure it's Lyme Disease what should I ask for and do first? I'm about 10 days into the infection. [more inside]
