Medical Gaslighting: Dismissed Symptoms
Medical gaslighting is a global health dilemma where medical professionals determine their patients’ symptoms to be self-imagined, psychological, and unrelated to a genuine underlying health issue.
The term medical gaslighting may be new to you. Still, you are probably familiar with the complications that MG individuals experience communicating our symptoms.
Myasthenia gravis is referred to as “the snowflake disease” because symptoms vary significantly from patient to patient. Considerable variation of symptom combinations and variables and the rarity of the disease make the perfect storm for medical gaslighting to occur.
Did you have a setback in your correct diagnosis of Myasthenia gravis due to medical gaslighting? Have you endured relationship issues, self-doubt, depression, or a loss of trust in the medical system due to problems having your symptoms dismissed as bogus or exaggerated?
