Catch cold or head ache, or something to stomach, you don t feel good in general, you will go to doctor or just try to cure yourself with medicine or some tea in your home? You can accept that maybe is a small problem and will pass, or you afraid and ask help from a specialist?

I will first have the medicine from home.. and observe for another day.. if things don't get better, then it's my family doctor to visit first before me consulting on any specialist.. It's not cheap here to consult specialist, and if I am going to the government hospitals, I will have to at least get a written letter from my GP.

Hi, I am in China. Like you say,not feeling good,what should I do? You know the medical system of China is not really developed. Even a slight cold costs one a lot.So I do prefer taking medicine in my home. Of course,it's necessary for me to go to hospital when I have heavy disease.

Usually, if I have a headache or stomachache, I never go to the doctor. I just stay at home and take some medicines until it goes away. As for fever, I also just take some medicine. If the fever has not abated or gone away after three days, then I always go to the doctor. Nowadays, the doctor's fee is too expensive. That is why I just go to the doctor if it really is very necessary.

I just do not do doctors! If I go it is as a very last resort and I have tried everything else and given up! I don't like their exhorberant fees! I do not care to take medicines either. I don't sweat the small stuff, only if it is an emergency or I have been sick for a very long time do I ever even contact the doctor!

Normally I try avoiding medicines as much as possible so even if I am not feeling good I will try other alternatives. Like for a cold or bad throat I will try somt hot tea or something. But if it does not go in 1-2 days then I will definitely prefer a doctor than taking some medicines at home because I am too bad in remembring all those names of medicines, which one to take for which problem etc. So I will visit a doctor in that case.

With simple colds, I just do a lot of rest and take in fruits rich in Vitamin C such as pineapple and orange. I think it works well for me. But if my symptoms persist or already present with some other manifestations of a disease process, that's the time I go to my physician. Since I'm a nurse, I do get the chance to just call my doctor friends and consult them of the best I can do to get rid of what I feel. With head and stomach aches, and minor pains, I take analgesics. But then again, if it worsened, I'll go and consult a doctor asap.

Actually I will buy medicine which I think right to cure myself and go back home to have a rest.Cold,head ache or stomach ache,just a small problem and it will recover soon,I never go to see doctor only because of these.
