Unfortunately, medical malpractice is becoming something that is more commonly occurring in today’s world. With an excessive amount of new medications being made, people are able to fix a great number of health issues. Some diseases are more common than others, while some diseases are on the rise. The issue is that some of these diseases are actually not even a disease, rather symptoms that can lead a doctor to believe they have a disease. One of these diseases that are becoming commonly misdiagnosed is Lyme disease—more specifically, Chronic Lyme Disease.
Lyme disease is a disease that has been commonly treated very aggressively in order to cure it. Unfortunately, people who are misdiagnosed have been receiving this same treatment, leading to extensive health problems or death. In other cases, people who claimed to have symptoms of Lyme disease actually had another deadly disease, and were in fact prolonging the much-needed medication to fight their other disease.
In recent cases, studies have proven that using antibiotics to fight a nonexistent disease – especially Lyme disease – yield no effectiveness, and even bring about serious harm in patients. Misdiagnosis of a disease can be very dangerous, because oftentimes. people are put on the treatment for a dangerous amount of time, and end up facing very serious health consequences.
