    How would you know what to do if you were given a different diagnosis by two or more doctors?

    Have you ever received conflicting diagnosis from doctors and if so, how did you decide what to believe?what action did you take?

    I have been, in fact I had lost nearly 60 pounds in three weeks before they finally figured out what was wrong with me.  I kept trying different treatments and when none worked, I went to another doctor.  It took four doctors before they figured out what was wrong and it turned out that each of them had been partially right.  Sometimes, it just takes time and the patience to try different things.

    I analyzed both of the diagnosis. One diagnosis was for depression, the other for bipolar disorder. So I decided to try to cure one or the other and see which one improved more. The two are dangerously close and are often misdiagnosed. So I tried anti-depression methods. Just a few things around the house to brighten my day. Pictures, a list of goals, friends, etc. For bipolar disorder, I tried controlling my emotions with the book "Emotional Intelligence for Dummies". (Have to love those Dummy books tongue ) So I used both to overcome what was bothering me. Now one doctor says I grew out of being bipolar and the other claims I'm no longer depressed.

    Well to me most doctors will be wrong because they simply want you to return so they can earn more of that money you have, not every doctor is out to get your money though, and so I don't use doctors no more. I use natural remedies for everything, and it all stems to how your Blood flow is being affected pretty much. Especially when it comes to poor nutritional habits, like eating fast foods, processed foods, and drinking harmful acidic drinks like soda, coffee, beer, liquor, and other drug related substances. 
    Your blood is highly important, and needs to be hydrated, so that disease cannot form with all the bacteria, and other toxins we intake daily, breath in or smoke up for those who are smokers. Research on the harmful effects that an imbalanced blood PH causes, I just found out recently and was literally blown away.

    The doctors will benefit no matter what, because people are stubborn, and do harmful things to themselves knowingly & unknowingly.
    This is the other reason why the accuracy of their diagnosis will be off, because they themselves have been leading bad lives mostly beginning with what they eat themselves, probably leading a false practice as well. Ever seen an over weight doctor, cause there are plenty, and weight isn't the only issue, the true health enemies hide inside the blood stream for the small and average sized person.

    I would certainly approach another physician and make sure that the right diagnosis was observed and made. I would research physicians, signs and symptoms before I would take any diagnosis as fact. I realize that it seems much more easy than it is and my heart goes out to those who are in this position.
