We would then have to make an appointment with the doctor and let them run multiple test to try and figure out what are medical issue could be.

Not everything you find on the internet is reputable and can be trusted.

This could potentially save your life so it’s important that you go to your healthcare professional at least once a year so that they can run blood test to make sure that you are healthy.
Minor medical problems, such as constipation, can be treated at home with over the counter medicines and home remedies. These are the types of medical problems that you should look up on the internet and follow what they suggest to help correct it. It’s always best to look up information on multiple websites and compare all information that you get so you know which directions to follow. You should never take anything that is suggested unless you can buy it over the counter at your local pharmacy. Also keep in mind that you should never mix over the counter medicines and only take what is recommended on the label.
