ADHD misdiagnosis ADHD misdiagnosis LEE COUNTY: Every year, millions of children are medicated for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, but a local doctor says they could be misdiagnosed and taking drugs they don't need. "He was such a good kid. So calm, so laid back, never argued," said Jenny Miner. That's how Kenny Standish was before kindergarten. Then he changed. "A little overactive. A little bit hyper," said Miner. "When he would get upset he would just go in his room and tear everything off the walls." Kenny's behavior worsened. By first grade he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. "I wanted him to feel well and do well in school," said Miner. Miner set out on a road shared by millions of parents and medicated her son to control the ADHD. "He calmed down and regained focus and we were hopeful and I thought okay. But then it wore off and we had to up the dose," said Miner. Specialists followed, so did stronger medications. "It made me feel dizzy. I was going across the room and it was going this way," said Kenny. "I took it. The same dose and I kid you not, the kitchen floor went diagonal on me. I said that's it. This is not for children," said Miner. Miner searched desperately for answers, but all along she had a hunch. "Did I think he was born with what he had? No," said Miner. It turns out she was right. In his bloodwork, doctors saw bacteria around his cells. The bacteria match the symptoms of ADHD and are transmitted by ticks. She learned he had ...
US Marine Misdiagnosed news report Here is the news report about the US Military abusing a soldier and his family. Be outraged. This is not funny. Anyone that dares post that you think he neglected his own health can expect me to block you, nix your post and send you some VERY HARSH words. Go ahead and say something stupid in support of the Military on this one and you can expect you will wish you hadn't bothered to piss me off. I bite hard when it comes to crap like this. I have personally been abused by the United States Veterans Administration hospital and can really relate to the poor practices of the VA and the medical personel charged with caring for those who served the country. It is long past time for the people to hold the nation accountable for these type of atrocities and FORCE them to change via political pressure.
Lung Cancer Misdiagnosed-NY Malpractice Attorney Explains www.oginski- A woman treated at a well-known Manhattan hospital kept making complaints to the young doctors who saw her in the clinic. She was a heavy smoker and had continued complaints of shortness of breath. The appropriate X-rays and CT scans were obtained but never properly interpreted. By the time her doctors realized she had stage IV lung cancer, it was too late to help her. Looking back at her medical records, it was apparent to every medical expert that this woman had evidence of lung cancer years earlier that should have been detected and treated.Watch the video to learn more.

Asperger's Disorder Misdiagnosed as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) Asperger's Disorder is often misdiagnosed as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). In both cases, the patient is self-centered and engrossed in a narrow range of interests and activities. Social and occupational interactions are severely hampered and conversational skills (the give and take of verbal intercourse) are primitive. The Asperger's patient body language - eye to eye gaze, body posture, facial expressions - is constricted and artificial, akin to the narcissist's. Nonverbal cues are virtually absent and their interpretation in others lacking.

Bipolar Disorder Misdiagnosed as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) The manic phase of Bipolar I Disorder is often misdiagnosed as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Bipolar patients in the manic phase exhibit many of the signs and symptoms of pathological narcissism - hyperactivity, self-centeredness, lack of empathy, and control freakery. During this recurring chapter of the disease, the patient is euphoric, has grandiose fantasies, spins unrealistic schemes, and has frequent rage attacks (is irritable) if her or his wishes and plans are (inevitably) frustrated.

CPS Kidnaps Sick Child Misdiagnosed w Anorexia, OK DHS May 19, 2010, KFOR. Steven Witt is a normal 16 YO ***. What you can't see from the outside is the disease that nearly killed him. Teams of doctors failed to diagnose it. The Dept of Human Services dismissed his family's concerns. The State Health Care Authority ignored their cries for help. The Witt family describes the past two years as a nightmare. Steven Witt's first symptoms were weight loss and seizures. Witt spent 42 days at OU Medical Center where doctors diagnosed him with Anorexia Nervosa. Steven's father, Michael Witt says, "We didn't believe it. We said, 'You're crazy!'" Witts refused to believe doctors. "We knew he wasn't anorexic. An anorexic won't eat. He wanted to eat all the time. He was hungry all the time." 6 months later, Steven's heart failed; he went into Cardiac Arrest. Paramedics rushed Steven to Integris Baptist Hospital. After another month-long stay, Integris doctors insisted Steven was an Anorexic. 2 months in 2 different Oklahoma City hospitals and taxpayers picked up the tab. Steven Witt is on Medicaid. He received hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical treatment for a condition his parents insist he did not have. Then, the State Child Welfare Dept stepped in. DHS threatened to take Steven away from his parents if they did not admit to his psychological condition and get more treatment for Anorexia. The state forced Steven's parents to take their son to Dallas Children's Hospital for another month of Anorexia treatment. Steven Witt's ...

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Misdiagnosed as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) Anxiety Disorders -- and especially Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) -- are often misdiagnosed as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Anxiety is uncontrollable and excessive apprehension.

Baby has seizures, but misdiagnosed as Colic or Reflux We took our baby to the pediatrician and a special "Colic Clinic" to determine what was wrong with him for the first 8 weeks of his life. Unfortunately, he never displayed any "episodes" while visiting doctors. So it wasn't really the fault of our doctors that he was misdiagnosed. We filmed our baby out of desperation and finally got some attention. Before this video received any comments, we had already gone to the emergency room. It was determined that he was having multiple different types of seizures all at once (no signs of "classic seizures"). After an MRI, we received the diagnosis that he has hemimegalencaphaly. It's a rare malformation of the brain that causes seizures. Although he didn't display this intense episode all along, it finally got to this point after 6 or 7 weeks. If your baby "jack-knifes" or rolls his eyes back, please take him/her to a neurologist or the ER. Our doctors asked all along if he turned blue, but he never did. Just because your baby doesn't turn blue, doesn't mean he's not having seizures (if he's showing these other signs). Thank you to all the concerned folks who sent us comments. We hope this video will be helpful to others in our situation.

Convergence Insufficiency - Often Misdiagnosed as ADD/ADHD Many bright children struggle with reading and learning due to a common, yet correctable binocular vision disorder called Convergence Insufficiency (CI). This inability to keep the eyes pointed at the same spot on the page makes reading a laborous, difficult, frustrating task. Symptoms include; eyestrain, fatique, headaches, blurring/doubling of print, skipping/re-reading words and lines of print, losing place on the page, difficulty copying from the board, excessive blinking, covering one eye, poor reading comprehension, reading below grade level, avoidance of reading, and short attention span for reading and homework. Due to the similarity of symptoms, CI is often misdiagnosed as ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, or an anxiety problem. A child can have 20/20 eyesight, yet lack the visual skills critical for reading. Recent reasearch by NIH and the Mayo Clinic confirmed that in-office vision therapy, combined with at-home activities, is the best treatment for Convergence Insufficiency.
Legislation Change for Misdiagnosed and Invisible Diseases The 'midodrine' scare led many of us to pursue alternate routes to continuing our medical care. Through this process, letters were sent to the legislature and to the FDA. It is great that the FDA reversed its decision and midodrine will not be taken off the market in the USA. But, the road for awareness leads to the same place, our Legislature. Here is specific information for my zip code, and a paragraph is highlighted wherein you can see alternative sources given for changing the law via Legislation. Lynn Fox-Adams has been to Washington, DC and helped lead the FDA to reverse its decision on midodrine. Can we take the lead and follow through on promoting awareness of 'Misdiagnosed and Invisible Diseases'? Lynn, help! :-).
ADHD Misdiagnosed In Nearly 1 Million US Kids Say Researchers pt. 2 Two studies published recently suggest there could be something wrong with the way ADHD is diagnosed in young children in the US, one found that nearly 1 million kids are potentially misdiagnosed just because they are the youngest in their kindergarten year, with the youngest in class twice as likely to be on stimulant medication, while the other study confirmed that whether children were born just before or just after the kindergarten cutoff date significantly affected their chances of being diagnosed with ADHD.
