Does anyone here have any kind of medical training? Doctor, nurse, medical assistant, pharmacist, lab tech, anything?
I used to have my St. John's Ambulance training for military first aid... but that was several years ago. I'm no longer legally allowed to administer first aid unless I take another course for it.
I am an RN, but I would not give specific medical advice to anyone via the net. Legally, nurses cannot make medical diagnoses (except advance practice nurses). We can only make nursing diagnoses (regarding items that we can affect via nursing interventions.)
