Gastroparesis misdiagnosed for two years
For two years (2006-2008) I was in the ER repeatedly with vomiting, pain, etc. I saw a physician in their facility on an outpatient basis. I eventually suffered arrhythmias, multiple episodes of aspiration pneumonia, and was even referred to psychiatric help. I ordered copies of the ER doctor notes and found out they labeled me a drug seeker. I eventually ended up in another hospital outside of my city where an ER doctor promptly recognized I needed to be admitted, not just sent home from the ER. After a few days in the hospital, the doctor recognized the symptoms of gastroparesis and ordered the test to confirm.
