Diseases, Injuries, and Conditions
There are conditions which may be causing your pain that you are not aware of. The diseases and injuries listed below are commonly misdiagnosed at least 40% to 67% of the time. If you notice similar symptoms then the Pain Diagnosis Test may help you prove that you have been misdiagnosed. Your test results will help your physician confirm or deny his/her diagnosis. Take your recovery into your own hands!

Electrical Shock Injuries and Disorders

Journal of Occupational and Environmental MedicineWidely accepted scientific studies show that 'Patients who survive electrical shock (including lightning strike) are usually misdiagnosed or have overlooked diagnoses 93% to 98% of the time.' Journal of Occupational and Enviromental Medicine, Vol. 47, pages 796-805, 2005

Lightning Strike Misdiagnosed

Disorders Often Overlooked After Lightning Strike or Electrical Shock

  • Internal disc disruption
  • Facet  syndrome
  • Thoracic outlet  syndrome
  • Radiculopathy
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Tempromandibular  joint disease
  • Spinal  stenosis
  • Neural foraminal stenosis
  • Cervical or lumbar instability

 

Sprain and Strain

"Widely accepted scientific studies show that 'Lumbar strain', 'low back sprain', 'cervical strain', neck sprain', 'low back pain', 'whiplash', 'failed back syndrome', and 'fibromyalgia' are usually wrong diagnoses."

Disorders Often Misdiagnosed as Sprain or Strain:Psychosomatics

  • Internal disc disruption

  • Thoracic outlet  syndrome
  • Radiculopathy
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Tempromandibular joint disease
  • Spinal  stenosis
  • Neural foraminal stenosis
  • Cervical or lumbar instability
Take the Pain Diagnosis Test. Find out if you have RSD or Nerve Entrapment or both
 
Signs and Symptoms of Sprain and Strain That Doctors Often Use as Diagnoses:
  • Sprains and strains, by definition in medical text books, do not last longer than three weeks. They heal themselves.
  • Soft tissue injuries and whiplash are really sprains and strains
  • There is usually associated swelling
  • In the early stages, the pain is made worse with use and weight bearing.
  • Change of position of the limb may worsen the pain
  • Taping  the affected area, or wearing a brace or support should help
Definitions

SPRAIN – An overstretching of the muscle or tendon, which attaches muscle to the bone

STRAIN- An overstretching of the ligament, which holds one bone to another bone

SLIPPING DISC -There is no such thing. A disc is a cushion between vertebral bodies. It is like a jelly doughnut. The rear part of the doughnut section (the annulus) has pain fibers in it. When the jelly portion (nucleus pulposa) is squeezed out, beyond the doughnut, this is a herniated disc, which shows up on MRI, CT or myelogram.

SPASM – The body's protective mechanism for overstretched muscles.
