When I visit a doctor, the doctor appears primarily concerned with making a diagnoses and issuing treatment, particularly as there is a shortage of doctors in my city and there are always several people outside waiting for their treatment.
As a curious person, I often have hundreds of questions about my medical results and how the doctor knows that I have what I have given my test results/physical examination/history etc.
When I ask my doctors these questions they usually give very short and simplistic answers as they constantly in a rush to get on to the next patient. I don't doubt that they are right, I just like to know more of their thought processes they they normally don't have time to explain.
Does anyone know where I can ask personal medical questions on-line to get more scientific detail on my medical condition, diagnosis and treatment than what a doctor has time to provide in a 15-30 minute consult (e.g. how does this ECG show that I have this disease given I have these symptoms etc., and how did the doctor know it wasn't disease x instead etc.)?
Are these questions on-topic here or are there any other services available that can provide a person with this additional information?
