    medical or health

    If I have problem with health, should I say " I have problem with my health" or should I say " I have a medical problem"?

    Re: medical or health

    I suggest you say: "I have a medical problem"

    In my case, I will say ¨I have a health problem¨. For me, when you say ¨I have a medical problem¨, you may refer to having a mental problem etc. It seems broader [medical].

    So, "problem with my health" doesn't sound right?

    I would say: I have health problems.

    Not quite; it makes it sound as if 'your health' is the problem (as with "I have a problem with my drinking" or "I have a problem with John's behaviour"). It's quite understandable though; I wouldn't say it's wrong.
