You are not going to like what I will say here: if you are sick, please take all medical books with you to your doctor and if they don’t listen to you, walk out and get another doctor! My mom has been completely misdiagnosed and from the first moment (2 days ago) on I have been fighting with all doctors. Last night I diagnosed my mom with serotonin syndrome–too much serotonin in the brain that can kill in a very bad way by suffocation. I recognized the symptoms, called the nurse with all symptoms, all cure, and gave her 1 hour to get it all done. With all family visiting her all day, no one caught it. No doctors–there were several yesterday visiting her–caught any of the symptoms either. They just kept on fightign me as if they knew better. They did not know better!
Luckily the doctors this time (late last night) did not fight me. They did as told and my mom is OK! I don’t yet know if there is any damage to any part of her body–including her brain. Yet to be seen. But today her blood pressure is back to normal and is walking again. So the good news is that she is back to body-normal. The bad news is that I am not on the hospital’s payroll and they will hear about this! If not by a lawsuit, then by a book!
So prepare yourselves please if and when your loved ones are sick. Get a book on medicine that you think you can understand enough to look up the symptoms and chase your doctors into a corner until they listen to you. If they did not act immediately as I ordered (and again, I am not a doctor in that place and I am just a research doc and not a patient care doc!), my mom may not be alive for another day! This is very serious so please those of you who have questions about drugs, check for yourself online or ask me and always have a relative with you with some knowledge or a medical book in hand–it can also work as an intimidation factor. Just go for it! Your life!
