Both WebMD and Mayo Clinic offer symptom checkers that allow you to choose or enter symptoms and see potential conditions that cause those symptoms. WebMD intends for visitors to use its symptoms checker for informational purposes, not as a substitution for medical advice, notes its website.
To use WebMD’s symptom checker, select symptoms, select a gender and age, and click Submit. Next, click on the map of the body to indicate where the symptoms occur, then review symptom choices and select possible conditions causing symptoms, according to the website. To use Mayo Clinic’s symptom checker, click on the symptoms experienced, select related factors and then view possible causes, as noted on the website.
