Anxiometer

How anxious should I be?

Our Anxiometer is a symptom checker aimed at helping you to assess yourself. Hopefully it will give you a better idea for when to call 911, Pre-R or your primary care doctor. If no red flags and if all the happy words seem to apply, then it’s probably ok to patiently “don’t just do something, stand there!”

Medicine is a sea of grey. Because of this you’ll find “happy words” vs. “red flags” throughout these posts.

A red flag for back pain is urinary incontinence, whereas happy words may be, “my soreness goes away after I go to the gym and stretch.” With every assessment scale the medical world tries to push medicine from art to science. Spend some time on MDCalc to dig deeper. These tools have their place in helping doctors to assess patients.
