Written by a team of physicians and nurses, this concise home medical guide uses plain language to provide medical advice on more than 100 common signs, symptoms, and problem areas. Instead of being organized by diseases or conditions, each of 75 alphabetically arranged chapters addresses a particular symptom (e.g., breathing problems, abdominal pain, heartburn, fever, etc). Each entry includes a description of the symptom, a list of questions likely to be raised in the doctor's examining room, and a table of possible causes of the symptom.
