Common Conditions that are
Years of medical school and hands-on experience do not fully prevent doctors from making mistakes. A misdiagnosis can preclude a patient from getting the right treatment, or even cause the patient to suffer through unnecessary treatments for a condition they don’t have. Some of the common misdiagnosed conditions include
Lupus – misdiagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, or rheumatoid arthritis
Lyme disease – misdiagnosed as influenza, depression, or mononucleosis
Asthma – misdiagnosed as reoccurring bronchitis
Parkinson – misdiagnosed a stroke, stress, or Alzheimer’s disease
Myocardial Infarction (Heart attack) – misdiagnosed as panic attack or indigestion
How can I prevent misdiagnosis?
You can be proactive in your health care to help protect against misdiagnosis. There are several approaches to take during your health care appointments:
- Ask questions, especially if your symptoms are not improving with treatment
- Request a second opinion.
- Write down all instructions from your doctor so that you can review them after the appointment.
- Ask the doctor “what else could this be?”
- Seek out a board-certified physician. A board certification shows further, extensive specialty-specific training that includes passing an exam.
- Websites such as Health Grades may help you learn more about the doctor, their experience, and the reviews from other patients.
- Ask for referrals to specialists as needed.
