wHERE CAN I GET NURSES HELP ON DIAGNOSTICS FOR A POSSIBLE HEALTH PROBLEM WITHOUT GOING TO THE DOCTOR?
Nurses are generally not aloud to diagnose medical conditions. Furthermore, most physicians will not give you a diagnosis until they get your medical history.
If you are looking for clinical information about a problem you are having, you should really go see a physician.
While nurses have a great deal of medical experience, and they may sometimes even suggest diagnosises to physicians...this is just not something that nurses do.
Unfortunately, this is a world of lawyers and insurance companies.
