Three Diseases Doctors Often Miss

In this video we will be discussing EDS (Ehlers Danlos Syndrome), PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), and thyroid disease. As a family medicine doctor, I am regularly confronted by patients exhibiting symptoms of common ailments. Sore throats, acne, hair loss… all often explainable by a common condition. Sometimes though, I come across a series of common symptoms that when presenting at once can actually be diagnosed as a rare and incurable disease. Today, I’m exploring these diseases that are regularly missed by doctors and often result in patients going years before finally getting a treatment that’s right for them. Read more on them below:

3 Thoughts to “Three Diseases Doctors Often Miss”

  1. Maybe talk about how women are more likely to go undiagnosed than men and how almost any route you go down as a women ends in there is not enough/any research to know? Like what is normal levels of oxytocin? What does oxytocin do in the body that is not related to pregnancy?

  2. Thanks for covering PCOS I was misdiagnosed for years. My lack of periods was blamed on me being young. I also have Chiari malformation type 1. There are often people who are misdiagnosed with CM. I was not one because I had a really good Neurologist who was trying to rule out everything that could cause migraines.
