since this IS the misdiagnosis section, you may not know what i found out.

did you know that according to HIPAA law, all medical providers MUST by law add a "statement of disageement" to your medical record? so, if you disagree about their diagnosis, you can have that statement added to your medical record- this could help in the future if some other doctor sees your record- they'll see that you "disagreed & why".

also, for more information on HIPAA, their website is:
