And you can be one too.

I have a medical condition. Would you like to make a diagnosis?

Three days ago I woke up with a sore jaw. It has progressively gotten worse. The pain is located on the lower left side of the mandible at the joint (Hope I am somewhat clear of my self diagnostic). The pain is unbearable when I move my lower mandible to the left. There seems to be a disconnect at the joint.

I also have PND (Post Nasal Drip) which was self diagnosed.

At about the same time I started having problems with my jaw I also noticed my left ear was irritated reminiscent of an ear infection.

Additional information about me is that I clench my jaw throughout the night. Is this a possible factor? Should I stop trading Nasdaq stocks in order to stop this condition?

So, is my problem dental or ENT (ear, nose and throat) or market related? I am currently taking antibiotics for possible infection. I've been on it for 24 hours and it seems to help. Or is it the beer?

So, take a poke... What is it and what do I do with it?

Now is your chance to make a diagnosis without a diploma. In order not to get in trouble with the appropriate agencies be sure to phrase your answers with....

"I'm no doctor and if I were you I would disregard anything I say but it sounds to me like you have.......but to be sure you should check with your physician"

P.S. I hope it is an ear infection which is affecting the jaw as the ear canal is situated close by.
