It's a long story that I don't feel up to typing but I had been in the hospital 2 days without diagnoses. We presented the 'doctor' with print outs off the internet to help them diagnose my 'mystery condition' as being Guillian Barre Syndrome. The print outs were glanced at no more than 3 seconds and thrown aside along with a change in the direction of the conversation. The next day I was surrounded by the neurology department whose head announced they had diagnosed my condition as Guillian Barre and were ready to start treatment immediately. Never did anyone even acknowledge our self diagnoses.
No 'doctor' will allow a 'patient' to educate them. period
