According to the WebMD symptom checker database, I either have a cold or the plague. Here's hoping for a cold.


  1. Interesting...

    I have general body aches and pains...

    Q: Body Aches and pains brought on..

    1) or made worse by swimming in infested waters

    2) none of the above.

    Infested waters?? Infested with what??

  2. Other symptoms I didn't include:

    1. Dislikes change in daily routine (that's a symptom of illness?)

    2. Poor personal hygiene (a symptom of quite a few of my customers)

    My problem with WebMD is that adding symptoms is always an addictive process rather than narrowing down an illness. Add five distinct symptoms and you get every illness that has any of the five, instead of the one illness that has all five.
