    $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome to Bio.SE. This is a very sensible suggestion, but as the tour points out personal medical questions are off-topic. Medical questions that focus on the underlying biology are preferable. As it stands this question should be closed soon because it channels answers into a diagnosis rather than a mechanistic answer. $\endgroup$ – James Dec 1 '15 at 2:15
