If you’ve been to the doctor enough times, you know that they don’t always know what’s best for you. So many people in the medical profession take a cursory look at patients and say the first thing that comes to their mind, regardless of whether it’s appropriate or relevant. I’ve heard more stories than you can imagine about people going to the doctor for flu-like symptoms and immediately being told by their doctor that they need to lose weight as if that has anything to do with having a fever and chills. Weight is one of those things that doctors fixate on, and while it’s an important part of health, it’s not normal for somebody to have extremely painful symptoms just because they’re 50 pounds overweight. People who have been humiliated, dismissed, and treated poorly by doctors and nurses took to Reddit to share similar stories, and they are a doozy.
