Tips to help the doctor diagnose your disease

Tips to help the doctor diagnose your disease  Have you ever had this scenario: you went to the doctor with a complaint and he made a diagnosis that turned out to be wrong? Is the doctor's competence only to blame, or do you perhaps share the responsibility with him? What can you do to ensure there is no misdiagnosis?  First of all, we must emphasize our full respect and appreciation for the doctors and medical staff in their various specialties, and the great effort they are doing.  We must also point out that the advice that we will provide in this report does not mean at all derogating from the doctors’ appreciation or status, but rather they are directives to help the patient who has the right to obtain the best medical care, in a manner that preserves his rights and the rights of the medical staff.  Due to differences between people, symptoms of the same disease may appear differently or differently between people. Thus, diagnostic errors that result from the misinterpretation of the results objectively, are only difficultly evaluated by the courts as treatment errors.  But on your part, you can help the attending physician make the correct diagnosis, by clearly communicating how you feel.  Here are some important tips provided by the German website "Bild der Frau", and quoted by Deutsche Welle , for a better harmony between you and your doctor.  Things from you: -  False delusion of a specific injury Some people turn to the doctor and think that they have a certain disease, as a result of reading a medical topic or seeing some of those around them who have similar symptoms, so it is always better to leave the diagnosis to the specialist. Stick to describing your symptoms, and don't mention any illness you suspect you have.  Pain and nervousness You feel upset by the symptoms, and possibly severe pain. You become angry and may appear unsympathetic. You can't be blamed for that in this case.  But it is not a good thing, it is important to know that even if you are in pain, shouting at the doctor or medical staff does not speed up treatment.  From a medical point of view, there are multiple tests that a doctor must do, and it is not possible to finish the examination stage and give you treatment just because you ask for it. Urgency to administer the drug can have serious consequences.  Things from the doctor Not listening properly Are you about to describe your symptoms, but the doctor treating you interrupts you after a few seconds and focuses on diagnosis and treatment? Do not tolerate this, as you may not have mentioned all the symptoms, which could lead to another disease.  Gently but decisively ask your doctor to listen to you to the end.  It is important that our words be brief and specific, because we know that doctors do not have much time, yet they have to make time for you.  Underestimating how you feel You went to your doctor because something was bothering you, but after seeing so many difficult cases in the clinic, you feel that what you feel is not important compared to others.  This will lead to a lack of interest in conveying your health problem, this feeling will also be generated by the doctor, which may affect the seriousness of his diagnosis.  So it's best to remember that you can be a little dramatic when describing your symptoms, and if you're concerned about your symptoms or treatment, feel free to express them.  Sometimes you don't accept everything the doctor orders silently You do not have to silently accept everything the doctor orders. The person treating you should make the decision to cooperate with you, and should allow you to ask kindly why you decided to have one examination over the other.  Your doctor should be able to explain this to you, so stay in touch with him or her.
