Has your doctor ever been wrong????

I had my DD ten days earlier than the doctor had guessed.
I actually sat in the doctor's exam room and told him it would be between the 5th and 10th of January. Why? Well because I concieved on the 4th or 5th of April. And January 20th was too far away.
My Mother was betting on the 20th because she had five children, so I knew nothing, right? But I knew how to count!!!
My DD was born on the 10th.

  • My doctors couldn't figure out why my legs would give out on me suddenly and after vigerous testing said I was fine. I got a second and third opinion and finally found a doc to take me seriously. I have narcolepsy and the leg issue is common among is narcos when we get really happy, sad, angry, etc...

  • doctor told me that my child was just "Quirky" when i said she bangs her head until bruised
    he was wrong, unless Quirky is the new term for autism

  • All this reminds me of how my DD's pediatrician sent us to a children's cardiologist and after he had siad he had no worries, the pediatrician still wanted DD to go to a nutritionist. After a cardiologist said all was fine. Even remarked on her ability to finish a treadmill test.
    I feel she wanted to bleed our insurance.

  • Patients can present with the same symptoms but there are so many different problems a doctor has to weed through to figure out which one you have. Plus they see so many patients all the time it is easier for them to start with the most likely diagnosis and go from there if that is not right. Give the docs a break.

  • are you kidding? I can't get a cold without being told that I've got a rare never been seen illness or symptom.
    my body didn't read the textbooks, so nothing is ever the way it 'should be'
    so doctors are more often wrong than right with me!
