Is there a way to chat with a doctor 1 on 1 online for free? i get embarrassed when seeing doctors in person.

Maybe: Everyone needs to be paid for their job, so free is unlikely. There are many places online where you can interact like this and have questions answered.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Like HealthTap! You can certainly talk with a doctor online, but it is not free. Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon.
