My dad had some unknown stomachache, the doctor told him it was some stomach problem,not big deal , he gave my dad medicine for killing Helicobacter pylori , and told him only need to come back after 3 MONTHS.however it didn't work.The pain was getting stronger, during the time my dad even underwent twice gastroscopy but there's nothing wrong,the doctor still insist that it's stomach problem. Finally my dad went to another hospital asked for CT, and it showed that the problem was FOURTH pancreatic cancer. It had been a year after he first went to that doctor.Although the cancer would be third or fourth period when one start to feel pain, one year earlier could change many things.But it was jusy too late .The doctor just like "I didn't expect this to happen…"F U C K Y O U!My dad fought against cancer for 8 months and unfortunately passed away last October. I hope this can give everyone lesson that don't be afraid of go to second opinion because of money or something, sometimes it could save your life.

He was on his way to get some pain killers for a sore back and cough medicine for a cough he was up through the night with. He looked really ill so I convinced him to go see a doctor. I got a call later that day from my husband to say his uncle had been taken to the hospital with a blood clot in both his lungs!Apparently the Doctor was shocked he was even able to walk in to the practice, he was really lucky to be alive. He is well and making a full recovery now. But the moral of the story is, don’t self diagnose.🙂👍 November 18, 2019 Reply stella 15 Checking a patient saves lifes…I'm apart of the red cross where people from 15 to 19 years old compete in first aid and they always "hide" very important wounds under the patients hair or clothes.Moral of the story do a full body check November 18, 2019 Reply Una Dankovic His dog is soo adorableeeeeeeeeeee💕💞💖 November 18, 2019 Reply Olyrhey Casupanan Does sleeping naked can develop water in the lungs?

At first they thought it was a stomach bug, but by 2 months. No way. They did some scans too, found nothing. At the 2 month point I was about to accept it as my fate. But my gut said go in just 1 more time. So I did. I got an older (read experienced) doctor and it turns out it was dairy.

November 18, 2019 Reply Ashley Harrell I had the same experience. For 4 months I couldn't sleep straight down on my bed; I had to sleep sitting up because my chest would feel like an elephant was on it and I would just weeze as well like I was choking. Arms, legs, pretty much everything hurt when I moved or stood still, or even as small as breathing. All the doctors I went to up to that point said it was just heartburn, so they gave me heartburn pills. Even some people just gave me tums because they believed it was heartburn too, but it just got worse so I stop taking them all. After being tired, physically and mentally, I finally went to the ER to find out I had Pericardial effusion (Liquid around the heart). They had to take out around 2 liters worth of liquid from it. The results came back unknown when they were trying to find the cause. I'm thinking it was all the milkshakes I had before then (1-2 milkshakes a day), but was an exhausting couple of months to say the least. November 18, 2019 Reply Matthew Williams Psych Social Worker here, similar thing happens to me all the time, the psychiatrist will see a patient, label them depressed, I will see them pick up on their psychosis and report back to the psychiatrist… Patients will try to hide psychosis because it's scary and stigmatized. But the doctors can't treat you for symptoms you hide from them. I was raised in a home with a father, brother and sister with schizophrenia. I pick up very easily when I am talking with someone experiencing hallucinations or delusions. November 18, 2019 Reply Nicole Webster Doctor Mike!

I remember we went to get them taken out and the doctor let me look through the microscope/ magnifying scope thing, not the normal one they hold up to their face but more like the one when you go to the eye doctor and put your head in I could see these little black dots on his eye. They were very small even with the scope they were very good at getting them out quickly. November 18, 2019 Reply TikTok Compilations this one time my mom woke up with an horrible earache and in some moments she could hear as she discribed "weird noises". And she was like eh ok i'll go do a checkup. The doctor said she has hearing loss and perscribed antibiotics. Before my mom went to the pharmacy she went to another doctor just to make sure. The doctor told her that she had a SPIDER in her ear, yes a motherfrickin' SPIDER and the doctor got it out and everything was chill.

November 18, 2019 Reply Alicja Dziubińska My dad broke one of the bones in his foot once, the doctor put his leg in a cast, but after takeing the cast off, dad's leg wasn't any better. The doctor should've made sure to stabilaze the bone with wire 1st, but he didn't, so it didn't even start to heal. Then this "genious" wanted to just remove the bone, beoucuse why not? Dad didn't want to deal with this guy's bullshit anymore and got a second opinion. The 2nd doc told him, that removing this bone = being unable to move his ankle properly and fixed it during an operetion, then get the leg into the cast again.

November 18, 2019 Reply Dara Fritz About two years ago almost I had a spinal tap done. I was warned greatly not to remain upright after 24 hours if it gave me a headache. My doctor was adamant I lay down for another 24 hours so long as headaches persisted. Because I’m stubborn and need to work for a living, I went to work. I ended up in excruciating pain, and had to have someone drive to where I was at work to take me to the hospital. Despite the fact I explained to this ER doctor all about what I went through two days prior, he insisted the location of my headache meant it was nothing more than a tension headache and there was no cause for concern for spinal fluid to be leaking. Regardless of how much I explained to this man that I wasn’t under any stress, which he insisted I was to have the headache, he didn’t listen. He went so far as to tell me he was documenting in my chart that I had nothing more than a tension headache and I was not to be treated again for it all because I asked for a note for the following day off work. He basically thought I was trying to pull a fast one and get out of work and wanted to make sure I couldn’t do it again. I spent almost a week out of work because I did, in fact, have a small leak and my doctor wanted me to remain laying down as opposed to trying a blood patch which he said would be significantly more painful. This is why I think most doctors are jokes.

Dr Mike, I respect you more for giving Roxie (sorry if i misspelled) to a family member ( I believe you said you gave her to your dad) because of your lifestyle. So many people don't get the right dog for themselves that match their lifestyle. With you being as busy as you are, it was probably really difficult to take care of a husky in New York. Very glad to see you saw that and got a dog that best fits you. also a adorable one.

It varied on where it presented, but was always in a band across my back and felt like I was being squeezed. It was definitely food triggered but not to any specific food, just anything that required digestion. I had one doctor tell me it absolutely couldn't be my gallbladder (my first thought since my husband had had the exact same symptoms a few years earlier) since the pain wasn't on my right side. He suggested that it was all in my head and I needed to reduce stress. (I had a newborn at the time, so ha! No.) The second doctor also said it absolutely couldn't be my gallbladder since the pain was often centering on the middle of my chest where my ribs swooped up (I'm positive there's a term for this area, but she never said it). She gave me antacids and told me to lose some weight. I begged her for an CT scan or something and she reluctantly (after I bawled for a solid twenty minutes because I hadn't been able to eat in days and she had the gall to congratulate me on the weight loss) ordered an ultrasound for me. Guess who was chock full of gallstones?! Yup. My gallbladder had collapsed and was necrotizing, and full of stones so large that even I could identify them on the ultrasound. The tech was super, super nice to me after the scan. 🙂 November 18, 2019 Reply Sincerely, Rose My parent's roster had told my Dad that his suspicious mole that his mom had been telling him to get checked out for years, was completely fine.

Wheat and Gluten not only cause the brain to swell, cause or worsen depression, worsen Autism, Bipolar disorder, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, etc. Taking Carbs like Wheat out of your diet will help make these diseases lessen in severity, maybe even coming close to taking most symptoms away. Most doctors will give drugs which eliminate one problem while causing another, while the actual way to more effectively treat these mental illnesses is out there. The main problem with this is that Doctors are trained to use medicine to solve all problems, they are not at all taught nutrition. This is a problem considering what we put in our bodies directly effects them, and since doctors aren’t trained to look at nutrition, they ignore it all together.
