I'm trying to understand the relevance of this category. It seems to me that this is very broad in that ANY illness, disease, physical or mental can be placed in this category. --Dysepsion 00:35, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

I don't think that it is a very good idea to have medicine appear on wikipedia using wikipedia's tone of voice, it appears to make it sound like a symptom you or a family member may have happens to be a terminal illness, for example: while reading about headaches, i have to continually convince myself i am not a hypochondriac, nor do i have meningitis.
