100+ DOCTORS TELL YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS: fistream.info/work/videot/jcmAn8vYg52buZM
There has been a lot of news covering a few Tik Tok videos made by medial professionals. They have been accused of having poor taste and even mocking patients. Some responses went as far as saying that Doctors shouldn't be on social media. I thought this would be a great opportunity to discuss this delicate subject and chat medical some! Huge thank you to Sarah Mojarad for chatting with me about her findings and experience!

  • You've hit it right on the nail: doctors take care of you when you're feeling most vulnerable and frightened. No we're not doctors, and we don't need to be made to feel stupid or humiliated for trying to figure out what's going on with our bodies. We're being observant and reaching out to an expert who can help us medically interpret what's going on.

  • Medicine is not like a computer program. Just to think alone, that you can just know what a patient has or not has in one second, that it for example can't be a heart attack but for sure is cocaine - that's just absurd. There are enough people DYING every single day by errors from doctors. That's human. And the human body and everything that can go wrong inside is too complex, that this will ever change (maybe some day with an AI that can screen your whole body in a second, but humans will always be too limited to do something like that - my mom just died by pancreas cancer for example, four weeks ago she simply had some stomach probs, then it took two weeks, partly IN the hospital with all kind of screening until they found it and two weeks later she died - at least peacefully and without pain). That's the main problem of these videos: it's arrogant. To say, you just "know" this. No, you don't. And while a patient is no doctor, you still need them to find out what they got. If you scare them away, that they might think you take drugs, don't take them seriously, even think bad of them if they dare to make an assumption, you are risking to miss extremely important informations - what can then easily lead to another one of these deadly errors.

  • I had exactly one psychiatrist believe me and prescribe adderall. It was like living in a new world where ADHD didn’t ruin everything. The rest all disbelieve me, no matter what I say. I tested inconclusive and thus negative because I have depression and anxiety (similar symptoms so they completely discount it) plus I’m a woman, and women/girls don’t get positive test results even when they have it.

  • These videos are published for comedy... that's it. If they where acting this way in their practice then yes issues. But as an entertainment peace... effectively they are budding comedians on an international open mike app. They are jokes. If you dont like em that's fine. However regardless of other professions if its comedy leave it alone. I'm not a medical professional and found these hilarious. Partly becuase I know people like that and it amuses me. For those posting personal accounts, I hope nothing like that happens to you again. However if you had real issues then these wherent jokes about you. I'm a firm believer in intent. If a person's intent is not to be mean, but vent frustration and exasperation, then chill and let them be. They have a hard job.

  • Not sure why this video is just now showing up as a suggested video now but regardless there is a fine line between going online and choosing to mock patients and deciding to educate patients about correct information. As someone who is 32 years old that had to go to the ER for chest pain I do find that second video offending because I did have something more underlying going on and that's how I got diagnosed with POTS.

  • As much as certain doctors shouldn't be allowed to be doctors, I think a LOT of the stories I see here are also the parents fault. You are the PARENT. You should be able to tell when your child is faking and if your not 100% certain s/he's faking, YOU TELL THE DOCTOR TO DO THEIR FUCKING JOB and figure out if something is actually wrong. Thankfully I was blessed with parents that knew if I was willing to complain it's time to seek a professional and keep doing so until they figured out what is wrong. Granted I was lucky enough that almost every time it was obvious things like open wounds or broken/fractured bones, but that doesn't change the fact that as the adult who is responsible for their child, sometimes you have to make the doctor do their job and run tests. Also, if it is something that could affect you or your dependent long term, ALWAYS get a second opinion. I fell of "monkey bars" while a child, hit my head, got amnesia, and had to wear a neck brace for a day. Because I was x-rayed and a doctor reviewed it and said everything was fine, my mother just accepted it. The tests were done and we had an answer. Unfortunately, that answer wasn't quite right and I now have (thankfully very small) neck problems to this day because of it. You may not always know if it can be life changing, but in the instances where you know it can, always get a second opinion. If they don't match, then you really have a lot to deal with. Ask @Doctor Mike what to do from their because I have no idea.

  • I spent years in agony because 'doctors' thought, and told me all the time, that I was faking and lying just to get drugs. I almost killed myself over the pain. Finally, they sent me for an MRI to "prove" I was lying. It showed massive damage to my spine, and supported all the symptoms I told them about. They looked at it, and said "oh, I guess you weren't lying" and totally ignored the results thereafter. Same thing for the strokes I experienced during that period. Yeah, I have a real hard time trusting doctors. However, I now have a doctor that not only takes me seriously, but actually treats me for the problems. This has resulted in a major improvement in my quality of life. I'm still not going to have the surgery to have metal rods bolted in, and spinal fusion on several vertebrae, but at least I don't spend all my time screaming internally. I can now walk, albeit with a cane and severe limp, and I can pretty much preform all the duties of a mostly normal life. Go figure, treatment actually helps. Who knew?

  • I had *various* medical issues, some severe and life threatening, and the amount of times I've been told I was faking, either due to my young age at the time and symptoms not being common (my diseases aren't the most common), was heartbreaking. Even now, I'm conditioned to think, "Am I faking this?" when something happens to me, and deal with issues, instead of seeking help. I didn't even go to the hospital with Covid until over a week into having symptoms. I was sick for almost a year with a infected gallbladder, and the infection was sever enough they needed to remove it quickly, or I could have died. Told I was faking it for a long time, it was just ulcers that I'd had previously, no one was willing to do tests, and I ignored the symptoms. I need surgery *again* for another gastric issue, and *just last Monday* went to the ER due to vomiting up to four times, every single night, and lack of sleep due to it. Was told there was nothing wrong there, sent home in hours, with numbers of gastric doctors they promises would see me on my insurance, but reception there said they could not. My PCP looked at my chart, with the same tests the ER doctors looked at, looked at me, looked at the chart again, and said that I need to find a new gastric surgeon (my old one retired), and will probably need surgery *again* for another issue. An issue I've been, again, ignoring for too long because I was told I was just faking and there was nothing wrong at another gastro and the hospital before, means I need a second surgery. I'm flabbergasted sometimes. I know some people do fake illnesses, but, I've nearly died several times, and have suffered needlessly and excessively, because some doctors refuse to believe a person can actually be sick? It's... So weird. And my biggest question currently, how can my PCP see a serious issue in the same tests the ER physician saw apparently nothing that needed any worry on? X3 It's... Odd. To say the least. I also blame myself a bit, too, however. Instead of continuing to seek help when I know something is wrong with me, there are many times where I'll just give up. Doctor said nothing is wrong? Well, no one is gonna help me, might as well just... Deal with this, and hope it goes away, and is magically a non-issue like the doctor believes X3

  • When I was about to have my second baby I told them I was allergic to penicillin because literally every other women in my family almost died from it. I was protecting myself. The nurse was annoyed because I didn’t actually try the penicillin first. She told me I was being dramatic. So ridiculous.

  • Wowww, count me among the many people with chronic illnesses who was dismissed by doctors for 10 years. I have MCAS syndrome which is a weird wild card illness that affects multiple symptoms. These videos make me so mad. I will never forget the doctor that told me it was impossible for someone my age and activity level to have this many sprains and tears (eventually got all the injuries confirmed and treated by an amazing orthopedist + PT familiar with connective tissue disorders) and the other doctor that told me a rheumatologist would laugh at me and I shouldn’t bother. All my routine blood work comes back exceptional, but when you run less common tests I don’t fare as well. Glad I have and amazing doctor now.

  • Only yesterday, I went to the hospital because I woke up with a tight chest, trouble breathing and a sore arm. I had an iron infusion the day beforehand and I wasn’t sure if it was a reaction to it, or if it was an anxiety panic. But I knew it was better safe than sorry. I got checked out and I was fine. I told the nurse all my concerns, including that I was worried that it was anxiety and she reassured me that even if it was anxiety, it was still important. I’m also glad that 1. As an Aussie, my visit was free and 2. I decided that I was important enough to get some help. (For the first time)

Before I got my epidural my nurse asked me what my pain level was and I replied 5 or 6 only to be told "well your crying and you look like your higher than a 5 or 6" -.- I have a high pain tolerance so yeah I my 5 is probably someone's 10 lol either way epidural are amazing and my nurse was amazing

  • i had a young lad like you coming in the ER with chest pain, sporty guy, tight fit shirts, his only vice was smoking about 5-10 cigarettes per day. no diabetes, no BP, no family history..he collapsed shortly after performing the ECG but lived to tell the story..he was like that "well doc, i have this small dull pain in my chest since the morning, i looked it up on google and said that i should be checked for heart attack".. i did an ECG right away and during the ECG he was in Vfib. so...the aftermath is: even if you are so tired, don't underestimate your patient. especially younger ones. if you are emotionally and physically tired, ask your colleague to replace you for an hour or two and go have some rest. drink a coffee, feel the fresh air outside and go back inside.

  • I started to have really bad stomach pains when I was around 13, never understood why. It felt as if my abdomen was on fire and the pain made it hard to breathe and to sit still, but not matter what I did, the "cramps"/pains would last up until 2-3h. This went on a few years because nobody really bothered to understand why I was in so much pain. When I was around 18, I had to go to the ER several times because of these pain attacks, and EVERY time the doctors came to the same conclusion "Oh, you have gastritis, take these meds and you'll be fine". EVERY. TIME. It didn't matter how many times I told them "These doesn't help, I don't have gastritis". They told me it was anxiety, that I should just take the medication. I stopped going to the ER after some time since they didn't want to treat me and that "it shouldn't be that painful". Fast forward to when I was 25, I had an attack every day for over a week, it was so painful I couldn't stand up straight. I didn't feel like it was severe enough to go to the ER, because they would tell me the same thing. But I did, because my dad literally came to pick me up at my apartment and drive me to the ER himself. My brother came to meet me up and this mf doctor went "Oh, it's gastritis, take this medication, I see you've been here many times before but it's normal to have stomach aches at your age". Thankfully my brother (because I was in too much pain to talk) literally stood up and said that he wouldn't leave until they at least booked another exam because this has been going on for years. They eventually agreed to a gastroscopy. They gave me the same pills as before and then left me. 2 days after, I had to be rushed in with ambulance because of the pains, and they took my pain a bit more serious this time (because of the ambulance ride lmao). Turns out my gallbladder was heavily inflamed and filled with gallstones. Had to be operated acute within the next following days. No doctor up until that day ever asked if it ran in the family, but every female on BOTH my moms and dads side has had their gallbladder taken out around the same age as me. Took them over 12 years to take my pain seriously and do something about it. I can't trust the medical system now even if I'm working as a nurse.

  • I think doctors need to take a course on bedside manner - that would maybe help with some of these issues - I hate having a dr roll their eyes after I say that I had looked something up on line (Dr Google is what some professionals say) - I want to make sure that I am not wasting their time and mine by going for something that alot of people have/deal with - no one goes to the library to look things up, they go straight to Google (I am just as guilty) - I agree there is ALOT of information on the internet and not all of it is accurate. I Have told my kids that they need to find at least 2 or 3 other sites that support whatever it is they are reading somewhere - facts are facts and opinions are opinions and you need to know the difference.

  • I had 2 years of my life where I was miserable but was told by 4 different doctors that I was extremely healthy for my age and in great shape and to stop the “attention seeking behavior”. One even went so far as to refer me to a psychiatrist. Mind you, NONE of the doctors or their nurses did any type of actual physical examination...when a physical therapist finally took notice and shamed the FOURTH doctor i was seeing into getting me an MRI, I ended up being sent to a major neurosurgery department at a near by university for an EIGHT HOUR emergency neurosurgery performed by a VERY pissed off surgeon who could NOT believe my condition had been allowed to deteriorate so much.....I completely distrust GP’s now.

They had IV start kits at the bedside table. The floor was filthy and they had alcohol swab wrappers on the counter. The staff had so much time to gossip about the patients but not enough to follow basic guidelines for a safe environment.

  • I was misdiagnosed as having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, I actually have Marfan Syndrome. I went through doctor after doctor who wrote off my symptoms and I almost died from my heart problems. Now I have no chance of ever recovering through medicine alone. I developed too thick of scar tissue. It makes tons of sense now after seeing this why I got written off and had to go through hell before someone took me seriously. I honestly hope they got fired and should not be allowed to practice medicine anymore in my opinion. Period!

  • I once looked up my symptoms online and told my doctors of what I found, I got dismissed out of hand and misdiagnosed, after it had taken me a whole 5 years to see that specialist because GP's wouldn´t listen to me when i told them of my symptoms (i didn´t look up symptoms until after the 2nd GP didn´t listen). I turned out to correctly diagnosing myself. But because of this ordeal I now deal with PTSD and serious mistrust of doctors in general, I can not visit a doctor without a panic attack. Listening to patients, even if they are wrong is VERY important. I understand doctors need to maintain a certain amount of distance and professionalism, but a degree does not make you immune to faults.

  • I can't speak for the medical profession but as a teacher in the UK we are held to incredibly high standard in terms of our behaviour and presentation outside of work. I know of a teacher who was fired for positing a picture on fb of a pile of marking with a glass of wine next to. We have to adhere to the Teachers' Standards which say our personal and professional conduct must be unimpeachable. The public have to be able to trust schools and if we do anything to undermine or jeopardise that we are rightly punished.

  • 2:13 No, they definitely explained themselves: "We know when y'all are faking 😂😂" Honestly the explanation makes it WORSE, not better. Their explanation in more words is: 'if we _think_ you're being overdramatic we aren't going to take you seriously' which is just BEYOND unprofessional behavior (and out right dangerous in many cases). Their HR department needs to have a long sit down with them and remind them that patients don't always react the way you think they should. ): At least without the explanation you could mistake it for nurses having to tune out the intrusive thoughts to bust a groove when their patients drop a sick beat in their sickened state.

I went to one hosptial trying to get tests to see if something else was going on and was told "you're not getting any pain medication nothing is wrong with you" the doctor didnt even take a look at me. I had the same thing happen at a second hosptial that same day. Finally my dad took me to a third hosptial where I was told I had MRSA and that if I had waited another day my leg would've been amputated. This videos definitely have an impact along with personal experience.

  • I have been treated like total trash garbage by doctors and nurses (there have also been amazing ones too of course) - but MAN. I have always been so super healthy, and I was so naive before I ever had a serious issue. As soon as I had symptoms that were difficult to figure out, I learned that doctors and nurses can be so unkind. Back in 2016, I started feeling exhausted all the time. There was this weird ticking sound in the back of my throat. And whenever I reached down to pick something up, and then stood back up, I felt like a robot with a gear loose. Something in my chest went “KER-CHUNK”. It was so unsettling. I didn’t have insurance, and we were pretty broke at the time. So I put off going to the doctor for as long as I could (months.), and just slowed way down and stopped picking things up off the floor, and internalized it as a character flaw. As you do. Then I finally went to urgent care, where I did my best to explain what was happening to me. The doctor there got very annoyed and yelled at me that I probably have asthma and I needed a GP for that, so get out of her office and stop wasting her time. I gave her the rest of our grocery money and went home with an inhaler. It didn’t help. But I couldn’t afford to see a doctor again, and I was working towards finding a GP. Then, I got pregnant with my third kiddo (bc my body didn’t give a rip about the fact that we were barely surviving apparently 😂🤷🏻‍♀️.) and that meant I had pregnancy Medicaid. So hubs was calling the office for a GP and explaining my symptoms. The desk lady said to take me to the ER immediately. So he did. They did a chest X-ray and it turned out I had been walking around with one mostly-collapsed lung for six effing MONTHS. That kicked off months of a rollercoaster of trying to figure out what precisely to do about me because every time we did a chest tube the lung went back up... and whenever we pulled them I would experience a re-collapse. It took a while to figure out what to do because I was very protective of my baby. There were doctors who made fun of me for that. The good docs saw us through in the end. I had surgery late in my second trimester and that solved it. My baby is 3 1/2 now and she’s full of magic and mischief. But man I came away with all sorts of medical trauma and I barely trust medical professionals anymore.

  • i feel like the first one wouldn’t have been bad if they didn’t add the "we know when you are faking"...... like the tik tok alone could be funny but saying how ppl fake it is just so wrong

  • When I was really little a nurse had to take my blood pressure and I have sensory issues sure, but this nurse just didn't do this right, she put it on too tight and it left a huge red mark on my arm and I stopped trusting the doctors and nurses, they had to take my blood sugar next and they put their hand over my eyes and told my mom to hold me down which made me have a panic attack because I also didnt like being touched, didn't like the dark, and didnt like not knowing what was going on, so I punched the nurse.

  • There's nothing wrong with being aware by googling symptoms. that's why you go to a hospital/clinic, because you feel like something's off and it's THEIR JOB to check what's wrong, not to make fun

  • As someone who used to volunteer in an ER in Philly, I can tell you we do get a lot of junkies who gave real symptoms but due to drugs. I seen people just die due to overuse. However this is NO REASON to not treat it like it's serious. This is disrespectful, don't nurses have an oath too?

  • I have nothing against doctor's. But I was told for months that I was depressed and needed therapy. They refused to listen to me and said I was just depressed. I wasn't. I had mono, strep (in the blood) and a few other blood virus. I was sick but drs refused to listen until I nearly collapsed.

  • "We know when you're faking". I was in active labor for 30 minutes, sitting in the ER waiting room, and they ignored me because they assumed I was drug seeking. Apparently at this hospital you go straight to labor and delivery, but with my last child at a different hospital, you're supposed to go to the ER first. They apologize profusely when they realized I was in labor, but I could've had a baby right there in the waiting room. Never assume!

  • Eh, when you're legally responsible for someone you won't neglect certain things that can put you as a healthcare provided in a vulnerable place regarding employment as well. I'm taking a lot of these complaints in the comment section with a grain of salt.

  • Went to the doc for back and stomach pain. He thought it was probably a stomach virus, but he asked me what I thought. I told him I had googled and thought maybe it was gallbladder. He ran some tests and surprise! It was my gallbladder. I had gallstones stuck in the bile duct. So thankful my doc was willing to listen to me.

  • I haven't faced much mistreatment with any doctors or nurses or such, pretty lucky for that. The worst of mine is that they said they'd refer to an audiologist but never did. I have a lot of scar tissue in my ears and get a lot of ear pain haha.
