On Friday 1 December, we opened the first door of the HealthUnlocked advent calendar. Each day we will feature a new health condition and the associated online community you might like to join until Sunday 24 December.
See symptoms, interesting statistics and much more each day on some of the most common and the more unusual health conditions. You can also comment on what you see and read on the HealthUnlocked latest community.
