People tend to assume the worst. They almost expect it, even. They're also curious and busy. So when you start to feel pain or just otherwise feel "off", you might take to the internet for an explanation, hoping to find out if it's nothing to worry about or if you should make some time in your schedule for an appointment with your doctor. It's easy to get a little bit concerned and want to talk to a professional when faced with weird symptoms and scary diagnoses, but there are some trendy health issues doctors are tired of hearing about that you probably shouldn't just automatically assume that you have until you know for sure.
When medical conditions get attention in the news or on the internet, they start to become more popular topics of conversation between some people and their doctors, as well. And while, it's true, you probably haven't contracted the Ebola virus if you've never been to a place where there's an outbreak and haven't come into contact with anyone who has, it can be understandable why you'd bring it up if you thought you were showing symptoms that could be Ebola, but could also be a myriad of other things. See, when people are faced with unknowns that are scary — like potentially fatal diseases — they tend to either ignore them entirely or desperately wish to be reassured that it's a non-issue. That being said, some conditions, some potentially life-threatening, some not, are brought up so often (and without merit) that it makes doctors tired to hear about them. If you have reason to think you might have a serious condition, then by all means, of course, talk to your doctor about it, but if you're freaking out over what's very likely nothing, just know that some doctors are tired of hearing about it.
