Most of us are guilty of indulging in self-diagnosis at some point in our lives. One has to admit that it can be a scary feeling.

When our own symptoms match the symptoms of a dreadful disease, it can send us right away into a panic mode. This is why most doctors advise not to look into Google when it comes to matters of health. 

Mark Shrayber who is a San Francisco resident has shared a similar story on the microblogging site. Recently Mark noticed that his legs had turned blue. He immediately turned to health website WebMD and after completing his research he concluded that he’s got “deep vein thrombosis.” Off he rushed to the doctor to get himself examined to prevent any untoward incident. 

On examination at the hospital, Mark was told that his legs were blue as he didn’t wash his new blue jeans before wearing them. What a relief! One can imagine how relieved Mark would’ve been. 

In his post, he wrote, “I would like to be executed immediately.”
