Everyone’s felt at least once that their problem is too small or stupid to pay a visit to the doctor for.

And then there are the people who go for stupid reasons anyway.



No, they’re not there because their chest infection isn’t severe enough for antibiotics or because they’re a little tired but for truly idiotic reasons.

Doctors are sharing the most ridiculous ailments that patients have either come in for or called about.

And whether it’s the guy who feared for his life after getting a static shock, or the one questioning his sexuality, you’ll feel totally sensible by comparison.


1. ‘Paramedic here. Had someone come into the ER because they were gay.’



2. ‘He came to the ER because his iPhone app told him his sleep was poor quality.’


3. ‘They’d never heard of static shocks, and couldn’t understand why I couldn’t treat his " condition"



4. ‘A woman called 911 for a body supposedly murdered underneath a railroad bridge. When we got there, it ended up being a log with a jacket thrown over it and a very drunk woman sobbing over said log.’


5. ‘One of my patients went to the ER because they felt they had too much earwax in their ears and needed it removed.’


6. ‘Her baby’s first tooth had come through and she didn’t know what to do. She asked me to cut out the rest of the teeth so that she didn’t have to deal with teething anymore.



7. ‘A patient said every time he had sex with his wife, his mouth went numb for a little bit. His wife had been using spermicidal film every time before they started, and he had been going down on her.’


8. ‘My wife is an OBGYN, and she was called because a teenage girl was bleeding. Yeah, it’s exactly what you think it was.’


9. ‘My mom took me to the ER because she thought I had blood poisoning. It was actually fruit punch I’d drunk earlier in the day and dripped down my leg. The nurse wiped it off, and I was saved.’


10. ‘Took my young son in because he had a very regular rash on his lower back. It wasn’t until I was in the doctor’s office that I noticed that it had exactly the same pattern as the inlet cover on our jacuzzi.’


11. ‘The patient said: “Well, I was at a wedding and it occurred to me that my son is a little short. Can you give him something right now to make him taller?”‘

13. ‘A 20-year-old and his girlfriend come in at 2am freaking out because “something had torn his throat open”. It was his uvula. Somehow this kid had gotten to the age of 20 without ever noticing his uvula.’

15. ‘Got called at 2am because “her daughter’s farts smelled too bad”‘
