Every so often we have been posting a review of the forum rules. However, located within the forum rule page are suggestions of the do's as well, and I thought we would post one of them today!
Again,... none!... of the rules, and or Do's of the forum we post here,... are directed at any one member, and are just reminders selected at random by a moderator.
So today!...we will review Do #4
4. Please do!...Use good judgement. NEVER rely on information or opinions exchanged to replace necessary, personal consultation(s) with qualified health or medical professionals to meet your individual health or medical needs. Remember that what's right or has worked for one person may not be what's right for you.
Moderator Comments: One thing we all need to remember, is that we cannot diagnose health problems and or conditions here on the forum. We are a support forum for Chronic Pain. However that being said,....we see many members posting questions about symptoms and wondering if we have an idea of what it might be.
Personally, I do not have a problem listing the possibilities, however when doing so, we need to remind members that we certainly are not Dr's,... and cannot diagnose. It is the Sole Responsibility of the member to get a professional diagnoses, as the Do of #4 suggest, and we encourage it!
I think Opinions are fine, but should be noted as such.
To those seeking opinions, and to those giving them...Please!...be careful.
