Patients Like Me

General Health/Community– This is one of my favourite websites. Other than providing health information, it connects over 600,000 members globally to over 2,800 conditions. Users can share their illness journey, expounding on their symptoms, treatments, and more. It is well worth a visit but remember that the forums are patient driven and not written by medical professionals.
