When my cancer was found I was in stage 3 and had over 100 abdominal tumors (non hodgkins lymphoma-follicular).
For five years I complained of feeling bad so blood test were done over and over, they were never off. I finally demanded that something be done, my back had begun to hurt so much I could barely function. Had an MRI and that is how they found it.
I go to the doctor tomorrow for labs (I am feeling a bit off) , feel like its a waste of money though because they never show anything.
Have you ever been diagnosed with something when there were no symptoms to point the doctors in the right direction or do you know someone who was?

NP... that is awesome, people are so dismissive with chiropractors too and they often find the problem/fix the problem.
My mom had been feeling "bad" and "off" for a couple of years and the doctors thought he was a whiny mom of 4 kids.... well, one weekend she lost her vision in one eye... I drove her to the doctor (Was a teen) and they sent us to an ophthalmologist. There we were told "Worst case scenario" was multiple sclerosis, but highly unlikely. Fast forward a few weeks... she was diagnosed with MS... so her years of feeling like crap had a cause. A serious cause that is now medicated daily and monitored constantly.
Very sad and scary diagnosis for her and our family but so grateful because we have had the chance to at least slow the progression down.
