is my doctor wrong?Watch
Perhaps you are just overreacting. Not nice to hear I know..... but perhaps you should wait and see if it settles. What you read on the internet might not always be accurate and might just fuel your anxiety.
yeah but I'm CONTINUOUSLY seeing the flashes of light even though my doctor said there's nothing wrong and online I've read doctors write that patiens have often been misdiagnosed several times and didn't notice the tear in their retinal or problems until it caused ppl to start going blind
On a more serious note, you realise reports of people being misdiagnosed multiple times are over exaggerated compared to the rates of people being correctly diagnosed, because nobody goes on the internet and writes "oh boy today I went to the doctor and they found out exactly what was wrong and treated it immediately and it had no further effect".
You're overreacting both to the original issue and to the material you're seeking out to justify your original reaction. This isn't a criticism, and in fact is a common occurrence (see confirmation bias), but the trained medical professionals know more than you or anyone else who spent 5 minutes on google, as much as we don't like to hear that.
Hi I was seeing flashes of light in my vision for a week, I went to an optometrist who checked mu eyes completely throughout, she said that my eyes are completely healthy and that there's nothing wrong and she has no explanation for it , so then wad happy as she said there's nothing wrong and then I went online and dis research and it said that continuous flashing lights could me a retinal tear andnow I'm worried because y parents are not letting me get a second opinion as the first one checked every ting including my retina and said there's nothing wrong so now I'm really worried I have also read people being misdiagnosed three +times so idk somebody plz. Help I cant get a second opinion and I'm freaking out with tej continuous flashing lights even though doctors say nothing wrong, my parents are not letting me get a second opinion
I then found research papers about the ketogenic diet and autism which showed very promising results however for some obvious reason research appeared to stop in this area despite searching can't find modern research on this. It's not that I find research that debunked this there wasn't any that I could find just the research stopped.
Want to know why because you can't patent a diet and as simple as eat lots of fat and no carb. You can't sell that for £800+ a pop you can drugs and the scientific community is funded largely by drug companies they insist such research gets killed if it ever has promise. The likihood is that if you really do have something wrong with your eyes you won't ever get any help unless that help can involve expensive medication. Remember the doctors get their intel from modern research which is funded and regulated by the drug companies. This is why I am science skeptic now.
It's not that I doubt the scientific method which is the best tool I have it's that I doubt the integrity of the scientific community and it's sources of funding.
Mind you my situation was life was over if this didn't work and it was a diet so did not appear to risky. Your situation is probably not a life or death situation and I do t think you will find a diet online and I'd be really skeptical about applying other methods to treat your eye from the Internet.
Bottom line though if they can't find a way of selling expensive drugs procedures or other things to someone through your treatment your not getting help even if you need it. That would be bad for the drug companies.
