Welcome

The Medicine.com symptom checker will show a list of possible conditions related to your symptoms but it is important to understand this not an actual diagnosis.

Getting Started

  • Begin by entering symptoms that best describe your current condition. The more symptoms you enter the more accurate the results will be.
  • Symptoms can be entered in your own words or chosen from the list of matching suggestions; select the most appropriate.
  • If no suggestions appear, double-check your spelling or use different words to describe your symptoms.

Useful Tips

  • Use medical language as much as possible when entering symptoms. For example, "abdominal pain" is better than "belly hurts".
  • Start with entering the area of the body affected, then the symptom. For example "abdominal pain" instead of "pain in abdomen".
  • Use text, not numbers. For example, enter "high blood pressure" instead of "BP 150/90".
  • Enter only abnormal test results, for example "low iron". Do not enter tests that you have been told are normal.
  • If you have recently travelled abroad, you may be affected by a disease more common in that region. In this case, select the country where you were travelling.
