In brief: Not a good idea

Better not self diagnose.
Certainly you can learn about the diagnosis, learn about the disease and treatment. You can google the symptoms, you arrive at several diagnoses. You need some clinical acumen to sort out these to get a diagnosis. There is also merck medics for patients, you can try that as well.
