LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -  What do you do if you're sick at home, but wondering if what has you down is the flu or a bad cold?  A new website might at least help relieve your concern, or help you decide if you should see a doctor. 

It's a website that asks you a series of questions about symptoms and underlying health.  It's based on the same questions that Emory University uses to assess their patients. The website was designed by Microsoft in part to help cut down on the amount of people flooding emergency rooms with non-emergencies.  For more information, please (Click Here).
