Medical Gaslighting

patient sad with misdiagnosis

If you feel like something is very wrong, that your symptoms are not caused by IBS, and your complaints are being ignored or dismissed by your health care professional, then you may be a victim of medical gaslighting.

Medical gaslighting is a term used to describe healthcare providers who dismiss or ignore the concerns of their patients, who tell them it’s all in their head, or accuse them of exaggerating their condition. This can be an incredibly demoralizing situation when you know that you are in as much pain as you say, and the IBS treatments are causing more harm than good. You may need to go above and beyond to take charge of your health and advocate for yourself. Most health care providers do their best to accurately diagnose and treat their patients, referring them to specialist after specialist in an attempt to find answers.
