Misdiagnosed and Sites…

WAR HORSE... BE AWARE... SYMPTOMS COUNT! THE RIGHT DIAGNOSIS WILL KEEP YOU ALIVE!



PCOS is a highly misdiagnosed syndrome… Most doctors interpret PCOS in their own way… Hardly ever the right way!
~
Felt i should post these sites i found for a friend of mine….
~
Searched info on malpractice for a friend of mine… Found interesting information on it…
~
Scenario:
Man had passed out, was disoriented when the ambulance got to him… The hospital MD and psychiatrist deemed it a mental problem…
~
Truth was his Depakote level was 3 points over the legal limit for the body!
~
Another problem, that hospital took him off all drugs which put him in to severe withdrawl !!!!!
~
– The 1st hospital never checked the drug levels in his system…
– He had minor to medium type stroke symptoms a few days later… The next hospital straightened him out…
– He was not Diabetic, but had a Hypothyroid and has lost 60 lbs in a few months after… Plus, now has the heart of a 20 yr old, per his heart surgeon!
~
MD:
His MD diagnosed him as a Diabetic, injecting 100 units of insulin nightly for a year… No blood tests were ever taken for diabetes…
Fact: If not a Diabetic or given to much insulin your body will make you eat more even through the night to keep up with the insulin! A symptom not listed…

Common Misdiagnoses and Hashimoto’s encephalitis

Cluster of diseases with difficult diagnosis issues:
~
There is a well-known list of medical conditions that are all somewhat difficult to diagnose, and all can present in a variety of different severities. Diseases in this group include multiple sclerosis, lupus, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, thyroid disorders (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism), chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes – all of these can have vague symptoms in their early presentations. Also, depression can have some symptoms similar to these conditions, and also the reverse, that many of these conditions can mimic depression and be misdiagnosed as depression.
~
It’s malpractice if you ask:
~
“Was this diagnosis given after a thorough medical exam for underlying physical problems that could look like a mental one”

My point:
You have to keep a record of symptoms, drugs, etc… Have someone available that knows you quite well to back you up! Look up things online, in forums and groups, etc… KEEP notes on what doctors say, do, etc… It all pays for you in the end!
~
Advocate:
Even think about a medical advocate to speak for you and handle some medical things for you… I feel you need one if the doctor does not listen to you, etc…
– I witnessed my 65 yr old friend being ignored by his MD…
– 50+ yr olds may need to consider an advocate if they are being ignored or are kinda shy speaking up…
~
YOU:
~ YOU know your body…
~ YOU are in control of your body!
