  • Patients experiencing various types and levels of dissociation can seem just forgetful, stressed, or a little confused. It's hard to tell from the outside and hard to explain symptoms as a patient. Anxiety can have be seen in striated muscles, smooth muscles, and in cognitive-perceptual distortions. Physical symptoms sometimes have psychological explanations: tunnel vision, muffelled sounds, diarrhea, constipation, muscle tension. What I'm trying to say is that as a society, we don't do mind-body very well. Also we don't consider social and environmental factors.

  • Me and my mom have told to my father that he must go to the doctor to check his heart for YEARS! 4years ago I succeed to bring him to go to the medical center of our city for the first time. When they took him in for the check up they told him that he was having a heart attack. They brought him to the hospital by ambulance leaving me alone at the medical center ater they told me what was happening. I was 14y/o, alone, scared and I thought that my father was gonna die. Hopefully they took him in charge right on time and he's fine now, but this was the most terrifying episode of my life. (I live in Switzerland and English is not my fist language so be kind please)

  • I have story about my grandma. She had a stroke and I took her to get checked out for a stroke and they said she had a migraine. Now they came to this conclusion by looking through her records. What pissed me off so much is that the migraine occured 30 years ago and she had two prior although minor strokes in the last year. I think she lost around 20-30 percent of her vision becuase I couldn't convince her to let me take her to the ER right away. Don't let people tell you stuff until they run the proper tests!

  • My second opinion story is about my mom. She went to several doctors saying she couldnt breathe, there was pressure on her nose and head, she couldn't stop sneezing and she was coughing so hard itd knock the wind out of her and she'd vomit sometimes. They all said it was just a bad sinus infection. Went to a different doctor, turns out it was polyps all in her nose and she had to go into surgery to get rid of them, and she also has GERD and a histamine allergy. Same thing happened with her hearing. Went to a doctor that was shocked to hear she was completely deaf (this woman is an audiologist btw) and at such a young age (my mom lost her hearing as a baby due to spinal meningitis) and they did the hearing test but it was done wrong, went to her old audiologist turns out her hearing wasnt getting worse her hearing aid just stopped working.

  • Mike, if you ever see this comment, can you give your best explanation as to why the doctors in these stories seem so lazy? They're probably not, but from my perspective, I don't see how they could not do all the basic things you said they should do when all doctors take an oath to ensure they take the best care of their patients.

  • My 13 year old little brother survived because we came in for a second opinion. He needed an emergency open heart surgery and was flown with a jet plane to the capital hospital (because they are experts within the field). Turns out he was born with a heart fail that made his lungs and heart receive less oxygen, but no doctors discovered it until this year.

  • I had a bump in the middle of my belly and it was visible when you looked at me from the side, went to the doctor and she told me I should just eat better. That weirded me out because it literally looked as if a golfball got stuck right underneath my belly button. Went to a different doctor who pushed it down, then told me to feel the area where it had been. It was gone for a few seconds and then popped up again. He told me the tissue underneath my skin is broken and the lump I can feel is my intestines being pushed out of my body. Had to undergo surgery and now I have a plate in my body that keeps my intestines where they belong. If you feel like your doctor is wrong, go and get a second opinion.

  • Story time! I went to the ER three times why? I was sent home twice. Three different ER doctors. One said it was my diet and I had reflux even though my diet wasn't bad. One said I had IBS and should just drink water for a day. The other admitted me after ten minutes. My gallbladder was about to burst. If they would have sent me home again I wouldn't be here. BTW, I did end up with IBS and a diagnoses of mild chronic gastroparesis later in life.

  • I had a PA try to tell me I fainted from test anxiety when I don't get test anxiety. Luckily my college teacher gave my email to another student who was medically trained. I'd had a classic grand mal seizure in front of an entire classroom of witnesses, and thanks to horrible Kalamazoo, MI healthcare (the paramedics wrote down NO INFO AT ALL) I was left driving on the highway for over a week having partial seizures every hour or so. I could've killed myself plus others on the road.

  • You absolutely can get metal shards in your eye from welding. In high school I was building a catapult with a teammate of mine and parts of it were made of PVC pipe. While cutting and drilling into it I got some tiny pieces of it in my eye because I’m stupid and wasn’t wearing goggles and had to go to urgent care to get it checked out. It was horrific. I genuinely wanted to rip my eyeball out of my head. It was itchy and painful for WEEKS afterwards. TLDR? Wear your fucking impact goggles for your DIYs

  • I had a headache shoot through my sinuses into the back of my skull and settle as severe pain in the neck of my neck. It happened so fast I blacked out for a split second in the store. Ended up going to the ER for fear of stroke after I had weakness and numbness on the left side. Was a severe migraine. "So I was overreacting?" Doc said no, my symptoms were stroke, the scans were the only way to be 100% it wasn't. SO glad I went to ER, against my mom's wishes. My sis had 2 strokes in her 20s.

  • My "thank god for a second opinion" moment: When I was 14, during dancing lessons, my leg locked in a twist, foot standing still, while hips and thigh rotated, and I saw my knee cap leaving it's socket and going right back in. I was probably in shock, but pretended to be really tough. Probably because of the shock, I could walk normally on said leg. My mom took me to the ER, I told them my story, they took some X-Rays and then told be that everything looked fine, it couldn't be something with the ligaments or soft tissues. I was just so reliefed that I believed them, even if the doctor actually didn't seem to believe my escaping and returning kneecap story. A night later, my knee was severely - like trice its normal size - swollen. We soon went to our privat practitioner, who instantly relocated me to a hospital with a good orthopedic unite. They didn't even wait for the MRT to operate and fix my ligaments. Years later, I'm now diagnosed with hypermobility. So, Dr. Number 1. I guess my overly flexible knees where the reason how the knee cap escaped and got back immediately after.

  • So this story was back like 20 years ago... My big brother drove to Glasgow (in Scotland) to go to university, he'd take his motorbike. One day, he broke down while there, he borrowed equipment from the uni to weld some parts. That's when he had metal shards end up in his eye (what a dafty!). His university was (and still is) one of the ophthalmology training universities. He went to the department and somehow ended up getting examined in front of a class of students. They confirmed the metal was there and then said, ok... you head to the hospital. He still has the floating scar in his vision. His bike was fixed and he also learned how important the mask is.

  • Hay doctor mike I’ve got one for you broke my elbow a little over 2 years ago had an op on it to put it back in place needed 3 screws after about six months and a load of therapy told the surgeon I’ve got numbness in my hand and like electric shocks going through my arm and massive pain he says ok we will get the screws out so 3 months later we get the screws out I heal pains are back numbness and starting to lose the grip in my hand so I ask what he thinks is wrong he tells me there is nothing wrong it’s in my head and I need to get it moving and get back to work earlier this year went to see someone’s else And turns out I have a trapped nerve fuse to the bone with scar tissue and the bone had reformed with a ridge poking right in to the nerve had a surgery last week and the pain is gone and most of the numbness too wanna say thank coz this video helped me push to see someone new

  • My husband took me to a doctor after I had been throwing up for 4 days straight because I was super confused and couldn’t speak much. The doctor pulled him out of the room and told him I was faking and was fine. We got a second opinion at emerg and (obvious to everyone but the original doctor) I was confused due to severely dehydration and was given something to keep me from throwing up and pumped full of IV fluids until I could speak again and drink water. ALWAYS get a second opinion.

  • Second opinion that saved my moms life and some family members was when my mom was taking birth control and her lips were numb. She called at night the nurse told her it was "just a side effect" my mom made a doctor appointment anyway turned out she had a stroke. They ran some bloodtest and a test for phospholipid antibody disorder and what triggered her stroke was the hormones in her birthcontrol. They ran another blood test at a hematologist office and we got the results but need tbe doctor to read it (my cousin is a nurse she read it and told my mother it was positive) but its been over a month and no one has responded to her calls 🤷‍♀️ we're pretty positive thats what it is though

  • Advocating for your body is important. I used to not say much to my doctor in fear of being told I was a hypochondriac (something I had been told as a child) or that I was exaggerating my pain/experience (bad doctor experiences). Thank goddess I finally looked into a better primary care physician. In one doctor's visit she listened, examined me, sent me for blood work, x-rays, etc. Turns out, I'm not exaggerating or being a hypochondriac. I have osteoarthritis in my knee, potential hairline fractures in my ankle, and potentiality for an autoimmune disease. Even if I don't have an autoimmune disorder, the fact is, I finally have a doctor who has taken me seriously when I've mentioned my body pain and other health issues. I'm in my 30's...why did it take this long?

  • I have a story to go along with this. One time when I was about 7 my head was really itchy. I would be scratching my head constantly wherever I went. My mom noticed some red bumps on my scalp and took me to the doctor. He didn't even look at my scalp and just said it was a rash and sent us on our way with some ointment. A month later I started school and I was called down to the office because someone had noticed me scratching my head all the time. When the school nurse parted my hair she almost screamed. Turns out I had the WORST case of lice she had ever seen at the school. I immediately got sent home and treated. It was so bad the school started scanning all the children for lice every year after that which was embarrassing knowing that it was started because of me. To this day, I don't understand why the doctor never even bothered to examine my scalp.

  • Last year, Halloween, I was doing a photoshoot and my knee popped. SO loud, it echoed the room. I was in 9.5/10 pain. Eventually I went to an Urgent Care that did an x-ray and said I was fine. I had a cheap, $10 brace from walmart and they said it was better quality than what they would have provided, so that would be all I needed and I would be fine by the end of the week. (Side Note: I was in so much pain, I could barely walk without wincing or yelping from it. These people didn't even prescribe me pain killers.) I was still in almost 10 pain level, so I insisted on them giving me crutches (which they refused to prescribe, so I had to pay cash for them), and to get me a referral. I go get the same x-rays done, and find out my knee is DISLOCATED. Had to get other tests done to make sure I wouldn't need surgery (I didn't), and needed 4 months of physical therapy.

  • Came across this video today and it reminded me of my ex father in law who passed away last year. He was severely misdiagnosed went into antidepressants and whatnot when in reality he had a larva cyst in his brain which was making it difficult for the "liquid" around his brain to drain. Increased pressure for months (about an year or so) and finally when checking for a second opinion (because nothing solved his problems) he was referred to a neuro who immediately sent him to the hospital, ICU. He got surgery (a couple of) and basically stayed at the ICU from September to December, when he passed away (he was brain dead by then). I am from Brazil and it is more than common to be misdiagnosed because your doctor doesn't take you seriously. He got infected with the larva cyst through eating less-than-well-cooked pork (also, not sure about the whereabouts of the pig while it was alive). I believe it is called cisticercosis in English. Also, my grandma (father's) fell and hit her head, went to the hospital and got discharged (she was old lady with diabetes and other medical conditions), died a couple of hours later because apparently her brain got injured in the fall and NO ONE CARED TO LOOK.

  • I have TONS of symptoms I've literally given up on. My heart, my breathing, my brain, my weight, my skin, my eyes, my allergies. I've been sick weak and miserable my entire life. The only thing I've been diagnosed with is a heart condition and a breathing condition. Im 26, I've almost died 2 times in the past 5 years and multiple times as a child and every doctor I see and every test I take comes back normal or as somethings wrong with no reason why. No doctor has actually taken the time to help me and none of my doctors would communicate with eachother so I stopped trying. Yeah, I'll probably die, but I cant afford to have doctors keep telling me that they understand I throw up more than I take in but I have to choose, migraine medication or scans. I can't do it anymore. No doctor ever listens to me and they take every symptom and act like it's something else. I have such a long list of symptoms and histories I cant even remember them all. I really think if someone sat down with my files they'd know what I have. My grandmother died from diabetes, theres a lot of cancer in my family, my aunt who had a lot of the same problems as me was diagnosed with MS and is getting worse every year. I know it's something. I'm 26, I should be able to run and stand and be active and I shouldn't have all these pains and problems and reactions, but no one will help me.

    • I've been sick for 26 years. My parents tried for 18 years and I've tried for 8 more. I've probably seen about 12 normal doctors, 30 urgent care doctors and endless hospital doctors and specialists. I've spent most of my life trying new doctors, my parents refinanced their house to try a heart surgery that I ended up not being able to have. No one has listened or figured it out. Every doctor wants to look at each symptom differently, I cant get anyone to take a second and look at the whole picture or talk to my other doctors and work together. I'll probably just end up living what's left of my life extremely sick, weak, tired, disoriented and in pain until my body just gives out. I mean my heart rate is very commonly between 136 and 170 just standing still, I doubt my heart will beat for as long as I'd like it to.

  • I did a hundred pound weight loss suddenly. Turns out kidney disease with a chance of cancer. Never could afford the test to finalize whether or not it was cancerous but watching my diet I managed to gain the weight back and then some. So there's that. Took a second opinion just to get the kidney disease diagnosis even though genetics speaking it's in the family.

  • I had a weird bruise on my leg. It was black and swelled up to the size of my hand. I had knocked my leg on a table a few days earlier, but I have never bruised like that before. My mum insisted it was normal and it's just a bruise. But I remembered my haematologist friend telling me "if you notice something weird, go get a blood test". So a doctor's visit and one blood test later, I was in the emergency room with a platelet count of 3. As in three more than zero. (Normal is 150-450). Turns out I have ITP... So yes, know your body, and know when something weird is happening.

  • My mom was misdiagnosed for 2 years, she had never had a headache before and they kept saying something was wrong w her. She went to osu nd an intern/student doc checked her EYES and discovered something- idk how its spelled but it sounds like pahpuh la dema? Lol and then they did other tests and were able to diagnose her with psuedotumor cerebri. This was 1998 when it wasn't that big...
