medical gaslighting women are more at risk than men

Medical gaslighting happens when doctors don't take a patient's symptoms seriously.

This can lead to serious health problems because the real issues are ignored or downplayed. Unfortunately, women often experience this more than men.

For years, my friend Samantha felt extremely tired and was in constant pain. The fact that she was clinically obese (which is weighing 30% over her ideal weight) didnt help her case.

Every time she visited the doctor, they told her it was just stress or that she needed to lose weight. Samantha knew something was wrong, but her concerns were dismissed over and over again.

This happens to many women. Studies show that women's pain and symptoms are more likely to be ignored or minimised by doctors.
