Re: Undiagnosed Symptoms- Anyone have this?

I transcribed medical records in a hospital for many years, I am now retired. I have transcribed records of almost every known disease. I remember a disease known as Whipples disease. It was caused by a bacteria that would attack any area of the body but mostly was in the intestines. It could be cured by a simple antibiotic, but if drawn out a long time could be fatal. This is a rare disease. Often a patient can be treated for many other conditions before it is finally detected because doctors do not often recognize it.
