This woman’s doctor laughed at her symptoms and didn’t perform a COVID-19 test in the middle of a global pandemic — lo and behold, she had COVID-19:
“Last month, I went to the hospital because I was having severe pain in all the joints in my right leg, difficulty breathing, extreme chest pain, dizziness, and cold sweats. When the doctor asked why I was there, I told him my symptoms and that I was worried I might have a blood clot. He laughed at me. He refused to do any tests other than a D-dimer, and when that came back fine, he tried to push muscle relaxers on me, saying all I needed was to just relax and I’d feel better.
When I refused because I have anxiety about taking certain medications, he got really angry and told me I needed ‘serious mental health help,’ then told me I was fine and that I had social anxiety, and that was the cause of my symptoms, and then stormed out of the room. The next day I went and got tested for COVID-19. Turns out, I had COVID-19. That’s why I couldn’t breathe.”
