"Might be viral."
This would be funny to me if it didn't precisely mirror some recent experiences with doctors (including Grumpy's "viral" comment).
Bloody brilliant!! Especially 'viral' by Doc Grumpy - maybe you should make a new edited version and add his in, because that is ALL GPs say here if they're not sure! :P
Yeah, that's not going to happen. Sometimes I wonder if people here realize I have a job... ;)
LOL I definitely know you do! Otherwise you would totally have stylised each of the characters with their own, unique hairstyle... oh wait ;)lol. Just teasing ya.
As a newbie doctor, love these phrases. When said in confidence they answer a lot of questions.The old 'observe over the next few days and then we'll think of something else if this isn't working' has been used in various forms for a few - mostly the hypochondriacs with the psychosomatic stuff though.When in GP as a student the answer was Viral for anything not worth sending someone to hospital for.

You can always call it "idiopathic"
I'm pretty sure if I said that, the patient would think I was calling him an idiot.
"it's just one of those things that happen"or "it's to do with age"
Uh oh. I use these phrases all the time.
Ouch. I used two of those yesterday.
I was diagnosed with Adult Onset Still's Disease a number of year's ago. It took them awhile to figure t out. I kept getting referrals to different docs and finally I asked for a referral to Dr. Kervorkian. A day later they called with the official diagnosis. Don't know if it was a coincidence or not.
