Again I must agree with C. "his or her" in E is unnecessary since their is no gender specification in the first part of the sentence.

Reasons

E)We are talking about survivors which is plural.His or her are singular.So incorrect
d)Sounds like the survivors themseleves would treat the symptoms
c)"their" aligns with "survivors"
b)same like d, it sounds as if they themseleves would treat.
a)Too wordy

Can anyone tell, what is the error in the original sentence.

(A) "chance" and "could" are somewhat redundant, I guess.
(B) you don't treat your symptoms yourself. Instead, you go to a doctor.
(C) Keep
(D) "symptoms" should be "their sypmtoms".
(E) "his or her" should be "their".
