Things Doctors Misdiagnose All the Time

A new study just came out that found asthma gets misdiagnosed all the time, especially in adults. Researchers looked at 613 people who thought they had asthma, and a third of them DIDN’T.

Here are three more illnesses that get misdiagnosed all the time . . .

1. Depression. Sometimes it’s really an underactive thyroid, and that’s what’s causing it. Hypothyroidism can make you feel cold, sluggish, and depressed.

2. Menopause, when you actually have an OVER-active thyroid. They can both cause irregular periods, night sweats, bloating, and mood changes.

3. Irritable bowel syndrome, when it’s actually celiac disease. Meaning you’re allergic to gluten. They cause a lot of the same symptoms, like bloating, diarrhea, and stomach pain. But the treatments are totally different. (Daily Mail)
