I was 17, so no one believed me. When I say worst headache of my life, I mean it. My right eye clenched shut and the right side of my body gradually went completely “numb.” I couldn’t walk for a few months.

When she went to see the other doctor it was discovered that she had bladder cancer that metastasized to many parts of her body 😔 She only lived a year after her diagnosis.

Not many psychiatrists will diagnose it because they don't believe in it and refuse to stay up to date with current research and findings. This guy was living with his "room mates" who were probably fucking alters inside his own head! DID IS NOT PSYCHOSIS tho it can present the same, and look identical if you're not a trauma and dissociative disorders informed proffessional. (plus what pdoc doesn't automatically assume -psychosis when something doesn't add up for a patients behaviour. Psychosis is quick, its easy and requires 0 effort on the drs behalf. Plus, they get the huge kickback from the pharma company by drugging the patient) The real giveaway is if the patient goes on meds and gets 0 effect. You can't drug alters away regardless of what movies or quacks tell you. And yep, on average it takes SEVEN YEARS TO GET AN ACCURATE DX!

After lunch, I had some heartburn that was kind of annoying and then went on into the evening after I worked. then by the time I went to bed with quite a lot of discomfort in my throat. Then I woke up in the middle of the night with a really bad sore throat to the point where it was getting difficult to swole, I had clogged ears and a stuffy nose. In short, I felt awful and I'm only 14 so, Is this concerning, and should I go to the doctor, I feel like I should. Reply Michael Clarkson says: November 19, 2019 at 7:37 am I had the absolute worst headache of my life one summer. Blinding pressure and excruciating pain. I had my wife drive me to the ER. Triage nurse took my vitals and told me I'd have to wait, saying it would be a while. I was in so much pain I was almost in tears and my vision was starting to blur. At that moment the attending doctor just happened to walk into triage to ask the nurse a question, took one look at me and immediately said, "We're taking him back now." Before the nurse could protest he had grabbed a wheelchair. First thing he does after I've got the gown on is a spinal tap. He comes back shortly after, rolls me on my side and injects an anti-inflammatory. Within seconds I feel the pain go away and my vision return. He'd just seen another patient with my same symptoms who was now in a coma. Acute encephalitis contracted by mosquito bite. If he had made me wait, I'd have gone into a coma within the hour, been dead not long after that. Reply Socks Hodder says: November 19, 2019 at 8:06 am I had that worst headache of my life in year 3, I had fractured my wrist a few months earlier, got my cast off and the next day fell on it and needed a new cast. Right after falling on my wrist again I was being taken to the school office when the most unbairable headache I had ever had came over me. I was taken to the office, layed down on a set of chairs they had set up, 2 ice packs, one for my neck and the other for my hand and my headache had subsided by the time my mum had gotten there to pick me up. I got taken to the hospital and they recast my arm. When asking about the headache they said it was probably my eyes and I went And got an eye check done. Eye check came back clear and had perfect sight and nothing was ever done again about it. In year 8 I had to get glasses and have been wearing them since (25 now). I always wondered about that strong headache and don't think much about my glasses as my mum and my 3 siblings all wear glasses or have at different points.

I never thought of it that way. 😄 I'd probably be more concerned if I hadn't been born with it, though the(1st) revision at 10y/o was pretty intense since we weren't quite sure what was wrong at first (headaches, vomiting, a couple seizures)…5 neurosurgeries and an emergency appendectomy later, I was good…😎 (side note: LPs are evil.

Reply Xyntak says: November 19, 2019 at 10:56 am A few days after Thanksgiving in 2017 I threw up a few times. It was pretty bad but I got over it and was fine. January of 2018 I start vomiting again and now it's happening a couple times a week. I'm seeing a naturopathic doctor at this time because I had chronic issues that no medical doctor I saw was willing to investigate, she was the only one willing to. We had suspected my vomiting around Thanksgiving was due to mold exposure as I was diagnosed with a mold "condition". We decided it wasn't mold when the content and smell of my vomit made it seem like I was vomiting fecal matter. I was then given medication and supplements to help with my chronic constipation because we were under the assumption that my vomiting was due to incredibly severe constipation. After more vomiting and constipation not clearing up I went to the ER. All that happened during that visit was that I was given fluids and referred to a GI doctor. Appointment with the GI had me leaving with an appointment for Colonoscopy and EGD Endoscopy. I consistently threw up the colonoscopy prep and wasn't able to clear things out. After the tests I found out that I had a massive stool compaction and a SEVERE stricture of my small intestine. Stricture was so intense that the scope couldn't pass through. I needed surgery to fix my small intestine. Basically, spent five months vomiting most everything I ate, lost 60lbs, wasn't able to stand for more than 30 seconds at a time due to losing consciousness from lack of nutrition, by the time I had surgery my small intestine was so strictured that liquid wouldn't even go through. I had my gallbladder, duodenum (section of small intestine), and 1/3 of my stomach removed because it was just a junky, coagulated ball, of ulcers that would scar with new ulcers on top that would scar and that process repeated for more than three years. Advil is one hell of a drug. Reply David Szaks says: November 19, 2019 at 11:03 am Slipped on my tile floor a few years back and put my arm back to break my fall. Had a lot of pain in my arm but I could still move my wrist so I figured it would fade and went to bed. Half an hour later pain is severe and I decide to go the the local hospital ER. Sit in the waiting room for 3.5h before the call me back, which by then, the pain actually had subsided. So, they do an x-ray. ER resident comes in and says it looks clear so it's probably just a sprain and give me a brace and sends me home. The next morning the hospital calls and says the radiologist came in an took a look in the morning and actually I have a fracture so they want me to come in get a cast at sports medicine. So I go in and the Dr there says he wants to get another xray. So he comes back in and says your arm is definitely broken, and I was like please don't send me for a 4th opinion because at that point they are just going to want to amputate.

Reply Elisa Lopez says: November 19, 2019 at 12:31 pm I was 9 when one afternoon, out of the blue, I threw up on the carpet. Kept puking until late that night. My mom took me to the pediatrician that suspected an appendix. She then took me to the hospital and a doctor just visited me in the hall and said "you just have to poo, take this laxative with some sprite and you will be fine". My mom didn't listen to him and drove 2h to the hospital where I was born. The doctors just had time to do a blood test before taking me urgently to the surgery room for a sever peritonitis (it was behind my kidney) that was about to explode. Still have a big scar next to my belly button.

Went to see a specialist, I had an mriIt came back clear and I was regarded as a hyperchondriac. This continued for a good 10 years, I worked out my trigger was having my heart rate rise even slightly. Over the 10 years I had so many doctors tell me to just exercise and I will be better. Well good thing I didn't listen, at 26 they did an Mri with an MRA (scan of blood vessels) turns out the major artery is completely missing to the left side of my brain, being catered to by tiny blood vessels instead (moyamoya). Turns out when my heart rate rises, and the extra blood goes to my head, the vessels can't deal and want to rupture. If I had followed the doctors instead of what my body was doing, I'd have had a stroke or major bleed. Always advocate for yourself.

Reply HanazawaEternalIce says: November 19, 2019 at 1:39 pm Second opinions are crucial!!! some family practice Dr's aka general practice Dr's GPs' (UK), are so rubbish! My mum was mis- diagnosed 4 times, each time resulting in my call A&E (accident and emergency) and her going in and asap in an ambulance. One time she had a stroke and the gp said she was just faking it, one time it was sepsis and she nearly died and the other 2 times she had pneomnia. Turned out she had a serious lung disease called bronchiectasis that for years caused her many chest infection, other infections, blood infection resulting in scarred lungs. She died almost 1 year ago… If the had noticed earlier better treatment could have been given. But the gp always ignored her and said she was a hypochondriac. I miss her every day.

Now I live pretty far away so I havent seen her, I am also a nurse. She kept complaining about pain in the knee and the back of the leg. So the day before I came home she went to the doctor and complained about the pain again he told her that it was just due to her wieght. When she showed me her leg was extremely swollen, red, and painful to the touch. there were clear varicose veins I told her to go to the hospital. She had a DVT and congestive heart failure. When I asked how her doctor didnt notice she said he NEVER actually looked at it and hasnt listened to her heart or lungs for years Reply DudetteDees says: November 19, 2019 at 2:55 pm Hey dr.

Second Opinions save lives! My father saw his doctor for pain in the leg. His Dr. found (through testing) that my father probably is experiencing a blood clot. he was put on medication. Sometime later, maybe months or a year, my father experienced the same pain in his leg. His doctor told him this time that it was gout. I told my dad to get a second opinion, and sure enough, it was a blood clot again. He's on medication now for life, as this is a continuing problem, and he's also a diabetic. if it wasn't for a second opinion my dad would be dead Reply #LifeAfterTraumaticBrainInjury says: November 19, 2019 at 3:52 pm Every time I heard something regarding the brain I got a little tense, especially the one who said they had a moderate traumatic brain injury!

Reply Lindsey Straley says: November 19, 2019 at 4:30 pm Here’s my story (because I didn’t see it on Reddit): My daughter was sick. I knew something was wrong. She was a month old at the time. I took her to the ER and they said she had bronchitis. I took her to her doctor. He said she was fine. She wasn’t. I went back and forth to the doctor and ER for almost three months. I finally was able to get her into a specialist. The specialist IMMEDIATELY got her into a room at Children’s Hospital. She was there for three days. She didn’t have bronchitis. She had six viruses and the cartilage in her chest wasn’t there. But, yeah, she was “fine.” I’m still debating on whether or not I can and should file a lawsuit against her doctor. Reply Keriel Watson says: November 19, 2019 at 4:31 pm I'm so paranoid, that a small odd skin mark on my back has been seen by 4 different doctors. All of them say it's not cancer. The first did say what it was, can't remember the name but it was something by body was healing. All others said it's inert and as long as it's not changing, itching or sore I should relax. They all also said I absolutely should keep an eye on it, and we're pleased I came to get it checked. The 4th doctor laughed when I said she was the 4th. Said I was being a little paranoid, but that she would rather me be paranoid about odd marks and lumps, than be complacent and end up with cancer. Especially since there is a history of skin melanoma in my family. Though I've not had that particular mark checked since, I still keep an eye on it and monitor each and every spot on my freckled skin for anything even remotely different. Going in soon for an odd bump on my wrist and one on my chin that grow a single extra thick long hair. It's most likely nothing, but I live in a country where health care is subsidiesed and my local doctors give discounts to people like me who are in financial distress. They have set the system so that I can get things checked and be proactive about my health, so that's what I'm going to do.

The first hospital told me that I should go home and watch my diet, as I'm gluten intolerant, despite me insisting that I haven't made a mistake in the diet.Second hospital removed my festered appendix the next day.

When she was younger, they used to use mercury in dental fillings, her family dentist was doing unnecessary dental work on her siblings to get more money for himself. He can't be held accountable now, since that was ages ago and he's probably not around Reply Rebecca Brown says: November 19, 2019 at 6:58 pm Dr. Mike, how do you take the time to do your YouTube channel and keep up with the workload at the hospital?

Reply Preksha Motwani says: November 19, 2019 at 7:14 pm Hey, just wondering do doctors take offense if people don't call them doctor and just address them with their first names?

U should really make a hoodie that says “dr” on the front and ”chest compressions” on the back, Omgoshhh🤩 Reply Kimberly Conner says: November 19, 2019 at 7:18 pm I'm an LMT (in WA state massage therapists are licensed). I work in a chiropractic clinic, so, usually, the people I see are in chronic phase of healing. However, there have been some times that things come up that are beyond my scope of practice. For example, sometimes I see odd looking things on their skin that could be a melanoma, so I ask if they've seen a dermatologist about the dark spots on their skin. Sometimes, a patient comes in with decreased ROM with numbness and tingling down the arm that I just can't seem to relieve after several sessions, I'll suggest they see their GP about it. One time I was working on my brother-in-law, because his back and ankles from jumping out of airplanes in the army. But, no matter what techniques I tried, nothing seemed to relieve his pain. Turns out, after finally seeing his PCP, he found out he has a ruptured disc in his lumbar, and fragments of bone floating around his ankle. Being an LMT is weird. We know just enough to know when something is wrong, but not enough to diagnose, and patients talk to us like we're psycho therapists or bartenders, or they just fall asleep.
