Hello. I hv heart condition from many years. Often people said dont trust on dr google. But my question is this that these artical or eassy are written by very doctors who r much experienced. For example i read in this site patient.info about heart failure, chest pain, Angina, heart attack . all symptoms i have . it create fear. My own dr said i m ok nothing serious. Now please tell me how i believe on which one i trust. Symptom are in me.

    Yes indeed, the Internet is just like a medical library at a University where we have access to the studies of medical scholars with far more knowledge than our own doctor.

    The danger though is, we don't have the experience to fully interpret what we are reading, for example, your symptoms might well fit something you have read, but you might not be aware, but your own doctor might be, that there is something else that you haven't happened across, that your symptoms fit even better.
