When the doctors don’t know
Isn’t there a name for conditions that seem to allude being named or detected? I seem to recall an episode of The Phil Donahue show ( yes Phil had a talk show before Oprah in fact Oprah gives Phil credit for inspiring her original show ) the subject of the show was illnesses that doctors seem to miss resulting in patients going to many doctors hoping that one of them will figure out what’s going on.
I think at the time there was a hospital and team of doctors dedicated to patients who found themself in similar circumstances.
That said, if you think about it, if all you have are symptoms that don’t ring some sort of bell for your average PCP then how does when do research on their own or even begin to explain the symptoms and more if you don’t have the words to explain or describe what is happening?
And when I think about it I also wonder how is it that so many people go undetected until “ it’s too late to do anything”?
If anyone knows of a hospital or doctors who specialize in this x? Situation? Condition? Problem?
Or if you have a name for it please share it with us all. I know that I am not the only one who has experienced the diagnosis: “ it’s all in you head “
