The internet can be scary

I have recently been answering a lot of questions on Quora, mostly to do with spinal/structural issues, today I playfully answered what seemed a slightly silly question about a sprained ankle. Turns out it's a kid, who although taken to the doctor who doesn't give a diagnosis but  an x-ray script the kid goes home, where the parents tell her to walk around on it as normal. And by implication don't make a fuss. Although its swollen in front of the ankle bump... there is a proper name. I give her gentle advice on not agravating it, and wish her well.

The next one from the other day was scary.  13 year old kid tells us he deserves pain and keeps choking himself, and his neck hurts....

Follow up.

The young lady with the ankle replied one last time to say thanks, and she had had the x-ray, and that a bone was broken, I didn't say this before, but I had said were she my child I would have had the x-ray done. So hopefully she will soon get better instead of agravating a broken bone which might not have fused properly.

I think I already slipped at least one into you already... figuratively speaking of course... Not to mention your online course on H-Pylori.
