Wow maybe there is some universal medical school of bitter doctors and bad manners.
I haven't experienced any falsification of records....
but I did have trouble with diagnosis.
I presented with a sudden breathing problem. (air hunger) The chest x ray showed my lungs were clear. I passed pulmonary function test, while on steroids.
I underwent a pelvic exam which was normal.
I had a head ct scan which was normal.
I had cbc's done and they were normal.
Heart tests were outright refused.
The breathing problem continued.
I was given asthma meds but not diagnosed with asthma.
I was given steroids though they said my chest was clear.
I developed worsening menstral cramps... bowel irregularities....constant stomach pain with no pattern.
They did an endoscopy of my stomach and said it was normal.
Through it all, I was put on Effexor and Ativan and told all of my symptoms were a result of anxiety.
I disagreed but tried it in case I was wrong.
Then as the tests were coming back normal, I began to believe that it MUST have been anxiety.
After the last test, a stomach test, was "normal",
and they still refused to take me off the Effexor,
I changed doctors.
He checked my blood. Low red cells.
He checked my stomach. H Pylori virus.
He scaned my abdomen. Ovarian cyst with possible endometriosis.
He Ct scanned my lungs. A granuloma was found in lower right lobe.
I could see missing one thing. But every thing they tested was normal.
He tested all of the same things within months and they were all abnormal...?
