my daughter had severe headaches for about 5 years. she had one incident when she passed out at home and was told at the emergency room that she had a brain tumor. her doctor did not believe the mri report and because of this my daughter wasn't diagnosed for 4 years. she tryed several doctors who told her she was neurotic. she finally went to a doctor who believed her and she had another mri. she had an oligodendroglioma and had brain surgery. luckily she survived the surgery. i feel that most diseases that are miss diagnosed are because the doctor didn't listen.
