Lots of people have medical questions that they're too embarrassed to ask a doctor. So when they feel this way, usually they'll turn to Twitter. Why ask a person who's required by law to keep your record confidential and help you, when you can ask 300 million nobody's on Twitter. 

Well, thankfully some people had that feeling because if they didn't, we wouldn't have this hilarious video. Luckily, a doctor did see these tweet: Dr. Ken from The Hangover and Community. It's his bedside manner, however, that's a little suspect. 

Watch Dr. Ken give his patients some serious sass and basically ask them to go see a doctor in person.

This woman posted a photo gallery of her story on Imgur which led to a diagnosis of a genetic disease that affects connective tissues called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). She explains the backstory in the description of the follow up picture post:

Five months ago, I posted "The Story Of A Broken Dancer." In this post, I told the story of how all I've ever wanted was to be a professional dancer, but that countless injuries and unexplained medical issues were coming in between me and my dream. Well, after posting this, hundreds of Imgurians commented on the post and messaged me saying I should look at different conditions or diseases they thought I had, but one that I received overwhelmingly was "Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Hyper Mobility Type III." I looked into it and decided it was worth a shot to get the testing done, and as of this morning, I have been officially confirmed to have EDS.
