    17 WebMD Symptoms That Will Make You Question Everything

    Noisy breathing + fits of rage = dying, right?

    If you're not familiar with the WebMD symptom checker, it's basically a terrifying rabbit hole that usually confirms your darkest fears — or creates new ones.

    Here are just a few of the symptoms you can actually choose from. And while these might sound ridiculous out of context, they can also be symptoms of real conditions. So, you know, be careful out there.

    1. Fear of air

    NBC / Via

    Well, now that you mention it...

    2. Punching or kicking in sleep

    FOX / Via

    Unclear if ~who~ you're dreaming about punching/kicking is relevant.

    3. Loss of outside 1/3 of eyebrow (unintentional)

    NBC / Via

    Not to be confused with intentionally losing 1/3 of your eyebrow.

    4. Tilts head to look at something

    Wait, is this not endearing?

    5. Taste words when they are heard

    Comedy Central / Via

    Please don't say shit. Please don't say shit.

    6. Bitter almond odor on breath

    What...does that even smell like?

    7. Fits of rage

    9. Unusually short fourth finger

    Define "unusually short."

    10. Foul smelling stools

    As opposed to fresh smelling stools.

    11. Multiple bruises of different ages

    NBC / Via

    This leg one is a toddler but this arm one is pre-teen with an attitude.

    12. Squatting

    MTV / Via

    Good for your glutes, bad for something else probably that WebMD will tell you all about.

    13. Dislikes change in daily routine
