There has been a lot of news covering a few Tik Tok videos made by medial professionals. They have been accused of having poor taste and even mocking patients. Some responses went as far as saying that Doctors shouldn't be on social media. I thought this would be a great opportunity to discuss this delicate subject and chat medical some! Huge thank you to Sarah Mojarad for chatting with me about her findings and experience!

  • When I was really little a nurse had to take my blood pressure and I have sensory issues sure, but this nurse just didn't do this right, she put it on too tight and it left a huge red mark on my arm and I stopped trusting the doctors and nurses, they had to take my blood sugar next and they put their hand over my eyes and told my mom to hold me down which made me have a panic attack because I also didnt like being touched, didn't like the dark, and didnt like not knowing what was going on, so I punched the nurse.

  • Last August I was exercising and went to take a shower...when I took off my bra, I saw a dark first I thought it was a hole...I examined my breast and found what looked like a tiny dark pin prick on my nipple...I called the insurance company nurse and she said get to your doctor within 24 hours.... I tried all the bext day to get my primary care doctor to give me an appointment...I spoke with her nurse and med center manager...I even offered to come in, pay a copay, and pick up the referrals at the front desk...she didn't have to see me...they all refused...I finally gave up...took another shower, put on a clean white t-shirt and went to sleep....the next day I woke up with a nickle sized dark brown spot under my breast....I panicked and started making calls again with the new info...again, she refused...finally, I called patient relations....they made an appointment for me and told me to get there right away...I did and the doctor was furious with me, she wouldn't even look at me and then said I was causing trouble and was overreacting..the only reason she was seeing me and giving me referrals was because she was told she had too...after, mammograms, ultrasounds, ultrasound biopsy, MRI's, MRI biopsy, I was diagnosed with Zero Stage Noninvasive Ductile Cancer of the left I am two breast surgeries, radiation treatment and hormone therapy later and I was ready to just forget about it because the PC doctor was giving me a hard time....if I didn't wake up with the spot the next day, I don't know where I would be now....I have to continue to see her because of my insurance, but we have a terrible relationship and I told her I no longer trust her...

  • "We know when you're faking". I was in active labor for 30 minutes, sitting in the ER waiting room, and they ignored me because they assumed I was drug seeking. Apparently at this hospital you go straight to labor and delivery, but with my last child at a different hospital, you're supposed to go to the ER first. They apologize profusely when they realized I was in labor, but I could've had a baby right there in the waiting room. Never assume!

  • Went to the doc for back and stomach pain. He thought it was probably a stomach virus, but he asked me what I thought. I told him I had googled and thought maybe it was gallbladder. He ran some tests and surprise! It was my gallbladder. I had gallstones stuck in the bile duct. So thankful my doc was willing to listen to me.

  • Wow. Those tiktoks were BAD. I had once a muscular inflammation after doing a 6h bus trip twice in a day and sitting down really tense during the whole way through for a press conference I would attend. The inflammation was on my chest muscles and the outcome was pretty much exactly like a heart attack and I thought I would die at age 21 and that was it. Luckily my hospital staff was so great and understanding and they managed to calm me down and explain what happened after a quick examination.

I have had so much experience in doctors and nurses like the last tictok video and treating me like a junky when I am in extreme pain or having neurological issues due to my condition and need to get checked out at the hospital just in case something bad is happening but they just don't believe me that something is actually wrong.

  • That first one frustrates me. It took me 6 years and many doctors to finally diagnose me with narcolepsy. And do you know how many of them thought I was faking it? Far too many. I almost killed myself because of those doctors. Luckly I was able to pick myself up and find a doctor that would listen. The second one has happened to me. Turns out I have conversion disorder. So I have no physical reasons for my seizures and heart problems but that doesn't make them any less real or dangerous. And doctors need to stop treating me like I can control them. Moral of the story is search for a doctor that will listen to you and when you find them never let them go.

  • It took me 15 years to be diagnosed with endometriosis. About 10 of those years I didn’t know what it was. It was only because so many celebrities came out about it that I researched, yes on google and saw I had every single symptom to it’s most extreme. So I spent another 5 years telling drs and nurses I think it’s this and they either told me I was pregnant, I must have been raped and now hate my body, I’m exaggerating, sometimes these things never get solved ... the list goes on. Those facial expressions of the woman about the heart attack symptoms is exactly the faces I would get and why I would then spend months in bed with pain and depression because no one would believe me and I was physically suffering. I know this is a similar story to so many people especially with pain symptoms. I also saw hat documentary about black women not being given enough pain medication even during labour. These kind of medical “professionals” should never be allowed to get their phd.

  • I've been suffering with bleeding and kidney pain my whole life. I went to sooooooooo..... Many doctors. One told me I had a cold🙄. I finally found an amazing doctor who listened to me and sent me to the right specialists, I was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease after 10+ years of being brushed off. Sadly my doc is retiring. 🥺🥺🥺 Why???!!!! My heart goes out to fellow suffers who never get listed to. ❤️ Hang in there.

  • Tbh, because of professionals behaviour, I do not attend medical attention unless it feels like I’m dying,... I always have pains,... but I ignore them,... because the nurses and dr’s here do not take things serious and send us home with Tylenol 75% of the time. ... a dr. Sent my friend home,.. she had back pains,.. and he assumed she wanted drugs,.. morphine and all,.. he sent her home... she went again 2 weeks later, she was not able to walk.. she was in mad pain,.. same thing happened, dr. Didn’t believe her, sent her home.. finally the head nurse did something about it 2 months later... (we only have 1 medical centre where I’m from, to get to an actual hospital, we have to fly on a plane to wpg MB) ... so when the head nurse finally was able to send her out after the only doctor did not agree,... my friend got sent out,.. a week later, she passed away, her spine broke somewhere, and the infection spread so bad, it went to her heart already by the time they finally took her serious, and it was to late. As for myself,.. I only go in when I feel like I’m about to die,... my chart is very small... they know I rarely go in,.. wish professionals would take things serious if there going to be a medical professional IG@ cherry_raedestiny

  • Yeah, my family doc ignored the fact my breasts started developing at 5 years old. By the time I was like 6 or 7 and was actually sent to the specialised doctors (after my mom gave the doc some "presents") the specialised docs blamed MY MOM for not coming in sooner because my reproductive system was at the level of development of a normal 12 year old. Also, apparently I have a fuckton of cysts in my ovaries but they haven't changed since the time they were found (7-10 years, my memory sucks) so they're fine. So I spent 4 years going to the polyclinic every month to have puberty blockers or something injected into the muscle as an elementary student. I'm just glad the meds had to be administered by the higher education level nurse and there was only one nurse who was educated enough to do it who was also super nice so I only have a slight fear of needles instead of a severe one lol

  • I went to get my heart examined for chest pain at a literal specialists that I needed referral from my GP to go see and the nurse there scoffed at me and said I was to young to be there while prepping me. That's not okay. I've also had nurses laugh at me for not believing I had a burn when through visits with other professionals later I discovered it was a rare potentially terminal dermatological illness. Seems to me it's usually nurses maybe they're new and all the experienced medical professionals know better since they've experienced the humility of their judgements being wrong. Regardless my point is is this happens to you it's not you. Dont be embarassed go see another doctor who takes you seriously.

  • I'm chronicly ill and I avoid hospitals at all cost because the lack of knowledge and understanding around my rare-ish illness. Nurses and doctors make a lot of unfair assumptions because they don't understand the syndrome. Their attitudes always change when blood work, and CT scans come back. They realize that I'm not crazy, I'm not a drug seeking addict, I'm just a young-ish lady dying in their ER because they're not taking me and syndrome seriously.

  • I am 27 and have cardiomyopathy congestive heart failure and I was diagnosed when I gave birth to my son at 20yrs old. When I go to the doctors with chest pain I get looked at the same way. I am spoken to like I am an idiot and it makes me hate going, people don’t understand how hard it is to be sick and not understand how or why it happened. I had my first heart attack at 21 because I didn’t want to go to the hospital for the fear of getting looked at different or like I’m a drug user just because my heart messed up after I gave birth to my eldest son.

  • I have a lot of problem with eating. I have to eat in small amounts and pretty often or i cam quickly get to the point where i feel dizzy and nauseous and refuse to eat because i'm scared of throwing up which is pretty bad, but it's been few years so at this point if i feel nauseous i calm myself down and try to tell myself if i throw up i throw up i'll be ok. We have gotten it checked put like twice and the doctor said everything seemed fine (my heart rate was normal, everything was perfect, everything they tested came out to be absolutely perfect but i know there's something wrong, but because i'm 14 i don't really think anyone will believe me) so the doctor just told me that if i start feeling dizzy i know what to do (lay down or just try to take a small nap to let my brain take a break since everything was happening whenever i was stressed) and that i had to try and eat. But it got worse and in the summer it got so bad i couldn't eat anything until i forced fed myself because i was scared to pass out or throw up so i HAD to eat. The same is wrong with my aunt, my aunts dad and it just comes mostly from my moms side so my aunt usually helps me and now i know what to do, but it would still make me feel better if i had some sort of idea about what was happening because it's a little scary

And they said just get on birth control and you'll be better in a month or two. They were the worst doctors ever and left me in terror of if I had cancer for a good 6 hours in a dark emergency room by myself

  • I went to my local medical centre with chest pain/tightness earlier this year. At that stage I didn't have a regular GP, so I just saw the treatment room doc. He asked me what I thought it was (you're the doctor bro!?)... Told him all about a traumatic pneumothorax from 2010. He listened to my lungs, said they "sounded great", then was literally leaning against the wall, arms crossed, legs crossed at the ankles saying "I'm not sure what to tell you". I think the look on my face made him say "I'll send you for an xray hey". Go for an xray the next day, the radiographer himself said I needed to follow him to A&E because my lung was collapsed! Three spontaneous pneumothoraces, one surgical pleurodesis and one medical pleurodesis later, I hope its fixed.

  • I completely understand the frustration with the second TikTok video. Why? Because I am that person in the ER When I was 14 years old, I was messing around with a basketball at my neighbors house. Not even really playing, just tossing it around. I started to feel really weird, like I had a humming bird in my chest. So I sat down and started calling for my mom. She rushed me to the hospital. Now the rest of this is hard for me to remember and I'll explain why in a sec but this is pieced together from what I remember and what I was told. My mom explained what was happening and the lady up front looked at me and said go sit down. I'm sitting there, feeling worse by the second, and a nurse walks by and suddenly stops. My heart was beating so hard, my long hair was waving from the vibration. She hooked me up to a vital signs machine and asked why I wasn't taken to a room immediately. The desk lady said that she thought I was on drugs so she was going to make me wait. My heart was beating 250 beats a minute. It was beating like that for about 2 hours and I was told if it had continued I would have had a heart attack. AT 14 YEARS OLD!!!! This woman made a snap judgement because I was a sweating 14 year old wearing dark clothes. If a nurse hadn't seen me, I could be dead right now. 5 years later I had a procedure done to prevent the attacks. It's now been 10 year and I'm a nurse. I still have these issues at times and could very well be the 24 year old with chest pain. I will never pass over my patient's complaints like they are nothing. Ever.

My maid was there for the same reason, her son was sick just like me, we had the same treatment, our docter was the same and the even the nurse but just because my maid is a maid they were charged higher, I was more sick than her son but they were treated different because here in pakistan there is a big difference between the wealthy and the poor. It literally hurt my mom and she paid for their them

  • Having fun at work is great. It eases the tension and helps to improve the working environment. BUT everything must have a limit. Playing with others’ lives is the least humorous joke that I ever want to be involved in. I respect doctors and nurses and every medical-related workers. Yet I will punch them in the face if they laugh at someone’s symptoms.

  • I also had a sudden chest pain while just lying on my side waiting for my two year old to fall asleep. I panicked because it hurt so badly. It was a recurring stinging and cramping. My back went numb, as did my arm. I was afraid to tip over and asked a neighbor if he would call the ambulance, which he did. The paramedics then complained because they wanted to connect a device to check my heart, because the pain I couldn't help but flinch. Then I was simply sent home at the hospital and the ambulance picked me up again the next day. Then I had to walk to the hospital one day for fear of having to pay for the ambulance because they might think it was just because of my usual panic attacks. I knew that when I had panic attacks I was never in pain that robbed me of even an hour of sleep. They always handled it like I was exaggerating. Now, after half a year, it came out that I have Tieze syndrome. Due to the fear of leaving my child alone, a heart neurosis has now developed, which has persisted until now. I've never had the feeling of being taken seriously by any doctor. As a side fact: I come from Germany and at first I was permanently scared to death and everyone didn't seem to understand it and wasn't a bit empathetic or understanding.

  • Can you react to the classic masterpiece film "The Hospital" With George C Scott? I think you would enjoy this film.

  • Medical professionals are people who carry a lot of authority in the world and the lack of care in the upkeep of the responsibility of that authority is the reason why people trust buzzfeed articles than their degrees. yes they are people too but don't wear the authority of the position (in the hospitals or in lab coats and scrubs) for clout and expect people to allow you the leeway given to you when you are not wearing them. I honestly record all my interactions with health professionals in regards to my health because i am one too just not in a hospital or MDO office and people like in the tiktoks are becoming the norm rather than the outlier in public facing field

  • The second video was very upsetting. There’s too many doctors who just brush things off. I hate going to the doctors, I found a good doctor about 4 years ago but then he moved away and I’ve only recently found another good one. They are far too rare. It’s so upsetting seeing a doctor when you have been struggling, only to leave with no results. I’ve heard things like eat better when I’m eating as healthy as I can :(

  • None of these were even close to problematic, big sigh, this sensitivity is ridiculous

  • I just realize that if you watch the first clip very closely when it’s showing the “patient character “you can see an actual real patient in the background you can see their hands and their legs so that means this woman either went into a patient’s room in a gown and did this while the patient was awake and seeing this or the patient was asleep and had no way of knowing what was going on

  • My brother is hypochondriac and the second tiktok already pissed me off, cause those are the expressions given to most of the doctors when we were starting to figure out why he was having panic attacks and thinking he has a heart attack. I feel ashamed because at first I also believed in the doctors (which we are supposed to trust) that he was faking it and there was nothing mentally wrong with him. It took us 2 years and more than 10 doctors to see if someone could help us. I mean us because his condition affected all of us emotionally.

  • A few years ago I went to see a cardiologist for some chest pains and fast heart rhythms, when I said my last episode was in the morning while making coffee the doctor actually scoffed and asked very condescendingly how many cups of coffee I had a day, my reply of one shut him up. Safe to say we switched to a different doctor. In the end I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and had an operation to treat it.

  • I know am 8 yr old that had a stroke, and a 12 yr old that has had a heart attack. Do not assume it's faking!! Run the right tests and VALIDATE. YOUR. PATIENTS!!!! They deserve it, and even if they ARE faking, it could be a psychological disorder. Smh. Don't be a nurse if you can't have empathy and sympathy to each and every person that walks through the door
